Man its been a difficult 4 months... I went to the dealership back in July and there were no S's available.. Had no choice but to order a 05... Im in Atlanta so go figure.. Its nice not seeing many of these on the road... I got a Dark Silver with a Black roof and Lapis Blue Interior.. I wish I had the dough for the Cooper Worx but Im sure there are other mods that are better that i can do at a later date..

O Happy Day

Today I picked up my Chili Red/White MCS ! I have never had so much fun in public with my clothes on. The miniscule test drive sold me on the car, but I put over 150 miles on my own today. MOTOR ON!!!! ;) ;) ;) ;)

'05 Mcs

I originally test drove an '04 MCS/JCW and the truth is... my '05 is just as quick as the JCW, and it's not even broken in! :D :D :D

I can feel the excitement, I pick up my '05 MCS at 6PM tomorrow!

Driving a brand new car is always memorable to me, and a great thrill. Looking back, I can remember clearly the first day I drove almost all my "new" cars. Some were not the latest model, but new to me. I've always been a car enthusiast and lucky to have owned some great sports cars. Each seemed to offer a slightly different kind of thrill, especially the 60's and 70's British sports cars.

But this MINI seems different. Maybe it's because of the internet, talking to other folks on the web about the car tends to increase one's enthusiasm. Until the last few years with the advent of car-specific websites, one's enthusiasm for sports cars was almost a private experience.

Cheers to you all for all the support and excellent input during my long wait for the MINI, it's much appreciated!

New MINIs

Hey Guys and Gals, I just got my MCS and the "break-in" restrictions are an unachievable goal !!! :( Then I remembered what the OLD auto expert, Smokey Yunick, said......" If ya bought it new, drive it from the day you bought like yer gonna drive it all of the time. Came with a warranty didn't it? " :) :) :) :) :)

Very cool.. Thanks for the site tip.. I noticed one of my guage lights didn't work and there was some glue crap on the luggage cover.. Also there is a bubble in the window tint.. I set a Appt to take her in in the AM to get resolved.. I have been to the Dragon about 20 times but on my bike.. I am attaching a pic... I was there the weekend of the Mini Rally and was held up by a few of you..J/K.. The Dragon Rocks.. But Cherohala and Foothills are so so nice... I'll post up on Atlantamini's..
