  1. Is it recommended to get the CVT Fluid regularly changed ?

    First Generation CVT & Automatic
    Change it regularly. It is supposed to be a standard part of maintenance at a MINI dealership. The CVT is not a conventional auto gearbox and the version MINI used is a bit fragile. It is also true that they can be a bit tricky to work with so I would suggest getting it done at a MINI...
  2. American Sports Teams?

    There are. There's even a cricket crease marked out in my neighborhood park (N. Calif.).

    Just so this thread doesn't become too one sided... Hatred, tribalism, and ignorance are most commonly incubated in church. - By Christopher Hitchens - Slate Magazine
  5. London Heathrow Terminal 5

    Banter
    I've never found Heathrow that bad except for it's utter inability to deal with any weather worse than a light shower, but I must admit I'm looking forward to trying out T5 in June.

    Yeah, I've been meaning to thank you for that.:D

    This is the sort of thing that's really going to plague Obama from now on... "Lanny Davis, a Clinton loyalist and friend of the former First Lady since 1970, directed two pointed questions at Mr Obama in an internet article. The first was whether Mr Obama would support a candidate who was the...

    Well for a start Hagee isn't McCain's pastor. Hagee endorsed McCain, but I don't believe they've had much contact prior to that while Obama has known and been personally close to Wright for years. More importantly McCain did get quite a bit of flack over Hagee and he did disavow Hagee's...

    If they'd just spoken about those things then yes they probably would have been labelled racist, but then if Obama had just justified black anger without discussing white resentment he would have been labelled racist as well. Politicians on both sides of the racial divide have in fact regularly...

    While I think your take on the speech is overly harsh that's a very fair point on the timing. The part of the speech that addresses race would have been far more significant if it didn't have the sense of being cover and distraction from the problem of the Rev.'s views.

    Neither does Rev. Wright by the sound of it.

    Probably true, The thought had crossed my mind.:D

    I saw most of it live and the first part later on and I agree that it was a very good speech. I'm not sure it was quite the second coming that some pundits are making it out to be, what he said was only ground breaking in the sense that it was common sense stuff that sadly most politicians of...

    I think the "anti-American" component of the Rev.'s sermons is likely to be more of a problem than the racial remarks and I must admit after reading Obama's statement that you linked I don't find it too convincing. He really didn't know until recently that these were Wright's views? I've seen...

    You know what I'm dreading if it becomes Obama v. McCain is the ugliness that's going to be unleashed from the Coulter/Limbaugh wing of the Republican party. At least with the Clinton's as Democrats they have to be somewhat sutble about playing the race or "Muslim" card. With the loons on the...

    Service I (26K) on mine as well. And as Drewuk said there is specific box for it on the MINI Service maintenance Checklist under Inspection I.
  18. Is the Clinton campaign guilty of racism ?

    Now, now, all she said was she might not be willing to raise money for Obama if they ticked her off. She wasn't exactly threatening anyone with "sleeping with the fishes." And frankly I think she's got a point about her original comment being overblown and taken out of context. Actually I...

  20. Is the Clinton campaign guilty of racism ?

    Banter
    It is pretty ironic isn't since as I recall the Clinton administration had a rather prickly relationship with the military in general. I also saw a story in a British paper that it was actually a Clinton aide who was telling the Canadians not to worry about the NAFTA rhetoric and not somebody...
