Just picked up the MINI from the dealership
- Oil & Filter Change
- New Hood Scoop (old one started melting from the heat generated from the turbo O_O)
- Tire repaired (apparently had a nail in it, but the leak was so slow I didn't know!)
Yay for Warranty! It's been 18000 miles and almost 18 months, and I still love my car. I shall be diligent in taking care of it (cars don't have genders) so that I can own it forever. I was on the NAM forum and was reading this thread: You Know You Drive A MINI When...
-When you get scared someone stole your car when it's actually just parked behind a bigger car/truck. (This has happened to me a lot haha)
-You find yourself wishing the road was just a little more twisty.
-You take one last look at your vehicle in the parkinglot/garage/driveway before it leaves your viewing-zone. (yep)
-When you come to a stop, put on your parking brake, turn the ignition off, and instinctively tell your passenger to, "pull twice!"
-when a girl passenger yells WOW ITS SO BIG(staring at the speedo), and you reply YUP! thats what all the girls say (haha yea its funny when I read this i realized all girls do say that)
-You don't bother to step on the brake when making turns
-You find yourself aimlessly surfing websites about your car... (..yea)
-Little kids eyes get big when they see your mini.
-When you pull down the sun visor and half your view is gone .
-you get that last parking spot on the block because everyone else was too bloated to fit in it
-you remember the birthday of your MINI... (hah damn. 5/7/2008 born in UK, 6/20/2008 arrived in US)
Tada!! I was surprised myself! Totally do-able.
Then I remember browsing some forums on what ridiculous things MINI cooper fit in their cars a few years ago when I was researching. So I went back and found all I could find. Enjoy:
Good for gigs
These are some pretty ridiculous over-the-top ones haha
Over-the Top Literally
Or if you didn't have a roof rack, you can... Tetris!
Enough room for 22 people :)
