I lost about a thousand photos even though I had a paid Photobucket account before the charging fiasco... fortunately I also had most of them on old harddrives too. Coming onto this forum does make photo posting a bit longwinded compared to several other forums i’m On where you have 1mb of storage and can upload images that get automatically resized in the process of uploading. For Mini2 I have opened an Imageshack free account and that has menus to copy the link for posting to a forum/ website. I’m not sure how much photos get resized but sometimes when I post links to the pictures here I can only see half a photo! At least here when you post a photo taken on an iPhone or iPad they come out the right way round, on some forums they come out either upside down or rotated through 90 degrees.

That is very nice car model.
Maybe if it was a little more slammed model, I would find it even more attractive.

Donít think a slammed car wouldnít suit the driving conditions here I have a hard enough time in my stock mini with runflats

Tend to use the PC for anything more than a written message personally as iOS may have made internet more accessable but takes away all but the basic functionality/options you get with a proper computer

I like the white (got it because they're more visible ) but honestly when detailing cars there's nothing better than a perfectly polished coloured car, with white you can get it looking great but they never look quite as shiny, will post some pics of mine up soon

True I saw a red car recently on a forum (not Mini) I honestly thought he had photoshopped it it was like a mirror

I also think like you
