Good to hear from you again Morty

I see that you took the Eurotunnel when you visited Plant Oxford in May - did you get a special price? I'm hoping we can get a good deal for MINIs going to MU 2009........

See you

Ian

Hey Venno.. was driving up from Pisek at the weekend on the old Strakonice to Praha road and came across a convoy of 5 original Mini's. Not worked out the newish registration system, so not sure what area of CZ they were all from, but don't think you were part of the group.

I was in the Mazda 6 as had to fit my little boys Mini ( https://shop.bmwgroup.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/WFS/Store-MINIShop-Site/en_GB/-/EUR/BMWOpenTemplate-Product_zoom?Image=80930394900&Mark=&CategoryName=&Displayname=MINI Baby Racer ) and bags in the boot, however the wife was holding his small scale model to the window to show we were Mini fans but nobody looked ! (yes I know this is not normal behaviour, but it's an addiction we have to get over)

Ahh Nuts! Nah I didn;t know anything about it!...There is MINI Praha Club, but it doesn't say anything about there being a Meet...Too bad though, Would'a loved to join a pack this past weekend with the great weather we've had...There is one event this up comming weekend, but i have plans on Saturday so I won't be going, but If you wanna go for a mini MINI run, let me know, I'll be free sunday and Hopefully I'll have new ultra performance tires by then :)
I know what you mean with the waving, I try waving to MINI people when I'm on the Prague-Dobris bus...I still haven't figured out how to make eye contact with them...There's a bit of a height difference and I'm not sure they'd understand...

any Finns left on MINI2?

hei suomalaiset!

I need a decent MINI specialist/garage in the capital region - do not want to use Laakkonen for servicing and installing mods on my MINI. Anybody got any ideas, recommendations?

There have to be some of you on the forum, I was just driving behing a black Cooper on Mannerheimintie, a very dirty blue Cooper S on länsiväylä, and there's a GP for sale at Porsche dealer.

kiitos

So far, I’ve only had servicing done at Laakkonen in Herttoniemi, but I’ve heard that Huoltorep on Lauttasaari and Samin autopaja in Espoo are good for MINI’s. I can let you know after I’ve tried them out.

You might also get some response from MINI2-FINN website.
