Default Finally ordered our MINI Cooper S

We finally got to order our Mini Cooper S last week, after being on the list since January. We should be taking delivery in late September. The 2005's will be 170 hp. So there will be a little extra umph. It's Will be Electric Blue with a white roof and white hood stripes. Also got the vspoke 17inch rims. Can't wait to see it. Now we'll have two retro cool cars in the family. Sorry I'm excited and needed to share.

Great Deanna! Who gets to drive it? I had an original Cooper S back in the '60s. We tested one before we got the PT but my wife 5' 2" said it was too small. After the test drive my 91 year old father-in-law couldn't get the grin off his face.
I love the sticker on your rear quarter pannel "Turbo inside". Did you make it? I'd love to have one. I use to by a lot of processors from them as well as another well known outfit or two in Chandler. I replaced all the emblems on my GT with a Porsche 911 "Turbo" in the center of the deck. [8)]

It will be my husbands daily driver to work every day, but that doesn't mean I'll never get drive it. We fell in love with the classic mini when we were stationed in Japan in the early 90's. So we were already a fan, but thought it was a little too small for any practicality. But, the Mini,(bmw) people came through with an modern version and we love it. The turbo inside decal came from vinzdecals.com. It was very easy to put on.

You guys are so... funny. I can just feel the love. By the way JMPS GT I got the turbo inside decal idea from Gary 04GT. He's the one who sent me to vinzdecals.com in the first place.
