Actually it's Green (BRG w White Roof). The light is so flat right now because of the crap weather. I'll be up to the "chuk" next week for a few days so keep your eyes peeled

Why isn't that poor little car in a garage :eek:. I'll be contacting my European Mini Rights
Team about this. Being european that means they are full of self importance but don't
have any actual powers :rolleyes:. What part of Canada are you from and I hope you have a
good set of winter tyres/tires if you have snow already.

The mini has to live outside as a concession to my lovely wife who gets to park in the garage (plus the fact that i have so much crap in the garage that we can only get 1 vehicle in.) Remember, we Canadians are a hardy lot and we expect the same from our cars.
The block heater is getting installed on Friday and i suspect i'll need it soon.
I'm going to run with the standard tires (15" non runflats) and hope for the best. Got to do a bunch of parking brake turns this afternoon to get a feel for things. Wish me luck

poor mini needs a sweater

I haven't seen much snow... and my MINI will likely never have anything but a sunburn...

Can you get him a big scarf or something? At least some mittens?

Talking of snow....I was unfortunate enough to get caught in the snow shower we had earlier this year. Although my trusty little brum brum (not a Mini...although mine is coming soon!!) got me home in one piece it was still a slip slidy scary experience. I noticed you can buy 'snow shoes' that fit on your tyres. Does anyone have them and are they worth getting?
