I'm the same way. I park my new MCSC away from other cars . I think it's normal.. congratulations on your new car. If you have pictures, I'd love to see it. I can only imagine it with the aero kit.

I know the feeling. when I got my first convertable, I hated leaving it parked when I went in for coffee downtown. I was afraid some kid would walk by with a slushie and throw it inside. It never happened. I know leave the top down, but park away from other cars. Worst thing that ever happened: it downpoured while I was in the store and came out to water in my car.
Have a great day and enjoy!!

I know how you feel as I love my baby too, and have made several mod's to her so she now stands out it in a crowded car park even more. I take great pride in driving my car and joy it. However I feel that this si what a car like the MCSC has been built for as it is such a great drivers car, so drive it as often as you can, and as far as you can. I take mine on Mini run's as many times as possible with the Middlesex Maniacs and we drive the cars as hard as we can you have never seen so many smiles on your face !!!!
I am careful where I park, and try to take sensible precations, but what will be will be mate, you could do all you said you do with your car, and drive it very little by the sound of things and still end up getting some mindless scum bag putting a key down the side !!!
Live life and enjoy the MCSC doing what it was designed for going round corners !!!!
Hello Nick,nickw said:Hi Alli,
Thanks for your reply. I don't think I am at the stage where I will leave my car with the top down, especially due to our poor climate in the UK. But I am getting more confident about leaving it, the only thing is you do get mindless idots out there who get pleasure in vandalising other peoples property. What MC do you have, any photos ?
Hi Alli,cooper girl said:Hello Nick,
I don't own my mini yet..still waiting. But I am getting a hyper blue/black mcsc and I'm SSSSOOOOOOOO excited!!
I lied when I said about the worst thing. There was something worse that I had to block from memory. Before Christmas I was shopping and parked WAY out in the lot. I came out to see my side mirror hanging by the wire. I currently have an M3 vert. I cried when I saw this because there was also a small crease below the mirror. You are right, people get jealous and have to destroy other people's things and it's terrible. Instead of just standing back and saying "wow, what a cool car" they stand back and say "it's unfair that they have a cool car and I'm walking...I'll show them."
As soon as I get my baby, I'll post pics for everyone to see because I'll be so proud!!
