Even NA motoring is kind of slow. As for me, I've been driving my Mini up to Vancouver BC for the weekend!

Saturday we drove to Llanberis and walked around lake Padern. Sunday we walked around Llyn Cefni (another lake). Sunday night there we watched some sort of soccer game. I'm at work today.

Tomorrow, I'm driving the MINI to Crewe as the Service light finally came on.

Congrats on getting your Mini!!

Just got myself an 04 MCS yesterday w/ 23k miles in silver with JCW 18s. Such a fun car to drive, makes me feel like I'm driving my 95 318ti that's sitting in the garage waiting for a new cooling system . But what a blast to take on the twisties

Enjoy and good luck with it. Instead of saying Rock and Roll..........just Twist and Turn.
23k...it's just about broken in.

Had a busy MINI weekend just passed. On Saturday, the new dealer in town Clear Lake MINI had a Grand Opening soiree and probably 30+ MINI owners showed up to celebrate. It's physically the nicest store in town, and looks like they're going to try making it the best.
On Sunday, our local group MINIfundrives had an ice cream social that involved meeting, then driving 120 miles roundtrip to a state park for desert first, then back to town for dinner. Around 20 cars and their owners were there for the festivities.

There is new dealership opening in Allentown, Pa. I hope they have a Grand Opening. Give me a reason to head north on the TurnPike. It's a beautiful ride.

Is that part of the schedule or are you suggesting it. I never thought about it. Thank you.

An expert once wrote that if an Engine is over maintained it will last forever....My only issue is the distance of the dealer for service. If I can sit and wait that would be ok. But it's a hike. I'd rather change oil more than less...regardless of the price.

No, not stupid. I'm a believer in the 500-1000 mile change. Get's those little slivers of metal out of the engine and filter.
