Picked up a new toy on Sunday

....actually, it's my new DD/commute-o-mobile.



Non-S
Auto with sequential drive (manual auto-stick)
Leather-trimmed seats
Panoramic sunroof
Premium sound
4wheel discs
4wheel ABS

and the best part: 38MPG freeway

Now if someone would only buy my Jeep!

Except for the S-type minilite 18" wheels, no. I feel that it's better for my and everyone else's safety that I leave my DD unharmed

Jeebs has been looking into it, but I told him that I wouldn't even drive it from Sacramento to San Diego (just 9 hrs).

Dude, congrads on the MINI!! I had an '02 Cooper S for several years as well as the '92 YJ. a '66 CJ5, and a '62 DJ5. It was nice having a car that had low mileage, beat Mustang GT's butts all day, and get 40mpg while doing it!! When I moved to FL, I had to sell the MINI because I couldn't afford the insurance and payment on my sucky salary at the time. The good thing is, I sold it to my best friend, so, when I go up to VA for vacation, I can drive it, my wife says I sold him the car, with visitation rights, LOL!! I'll post a pic of mine on this thread whenever I can find the pics!!
