Almost 600 since Fri night

I have done almost 600 since Friday night when I picked it up.

Fri --> ~100 miles around Chicago
Sat --> ~200 miles to Rockford
Sun--> ~250 miles to Starved Rock (Utica, IL) with the Chicago Mini Club.

The drive to Starved Rock was awesome. Took all the back roads with lots of twisties. What a fun car to drive, it just sticks to the road.

just too much fun

I put the required 1250 on in the first week! I would not have done as much driving except, I had friends fly in from out of town... and well one thing led to another!
I do a lot of driving in general though, and all of it is awesome in my new car. I have put 5000 miles on in one and a half months.

5000 in 1 1/2 months!?!?!? Do you realize that at that rate your warranty will be over in just 15 months. :eek:

I now feel a Total Letdown to MINI Fraternity after reading these figures. :eek:
I did a grand total 16 miles in the first week thanks to an unfortunate Drilling Mishap on the 1st day & Now after around 7 weeks can Only celebrate the 700 mile Landmark.
Still, Its been cheap to run :p

Got mine on Oct. 11, in the afternoon. As of this afternoon, 10 days later, just a wee bit over 900 miles! (turned over just as I got to my driveway :) ) (I had an out-of-state trip this past weekend, hence the miles).
