Thumbs up Let's See Those Mini Pics!! Flash Yours to the Rest of Us!

My girlfriend just saddled up and finally financed a new mini cooper. We're over here in Rhode Island and honestly - there aren't too many minis driving around Newport to be honest. Not trying to get into my personal history, but I've never been too big a fan of the minis. I prefer the classic BMW coupes, like the 328i (which is what I'm driving these days). But after driving the mini around, i think that german engineering still does a mighty job.
Anyway, for any of you ladies out there - or fellows - that are looking for a Mini, thought I'd drop a line and recommend the BMW of Newport dealership. It's off Main Road over in Middletown. Easy to find. They knocked about 5K off my bimmer when I bought it last year, and the good guys over there even recommended the best mini dealer around Rhode Island. Really appreciated it. They had some beautiful 2010 3 series on the lot. Check em out.

Oh- and here's some pictures of my baby's new baby!

Awesome car! I ordered a 2010 Cooper S and it just came in a couple days ago. I'll be picking it up next weekend after I finish giving final exams to all my students.

We're almost twinkies.







Only the essentials - butt warmers and xenons.

Love the cabrio mullman!! I was really torn on getting a cabrio or coupe. They had a Horizon Blue with the blue denim top at the dealership last time I went there and I loved that look. I test drove one of the base model cabrios and despite Car and Driver's review talking about how sluggish they are, I was pleasantly surprise by it's spunkiness. My only complaint was a mildly persistant rattle in the roof architecture somewhere over my left shoulder. The premium on the cabrios was just a little too much, so I specc'd out an MCS with only the bare essentials (xenons, CW pack, rear fog) and managed it for $24,100. The dealer is knocking $1k off of that even, so IMHO, I'm getting a hell of a car for a hell of a price!

Btw, those rims are sick!

Andrew: Awesome MC! I love the blue and white combo.

And Wingspan: That's a great little classic. Looks like one of the older ones by the door hinges. I had a 1980 and WILL have another sometime in the nearish future. It was a money pit and ran hot as hell but I loved that car!

Mein Auto:
My previous MINI; 2005 MCS, with a few performance goodies added by a previous owner.

That car was totaled last February, and replaced with a 2009 JCW.
Here it is, with a couple of blackout mods; I've since blacked out the gas cap and side markers.
