My 2012 MCS celebrates a build-date-anniversary this weekend, the 23rd. I took delivery in late March, 2012. Since then: it's covered 46,000 miles participated in MTTS 2012 in Chicago and Des Moines attended MINIs in the Ozarks in 2012 ran a standing mile at 135.9 at the Texas Mile paraded with MINIs at the Richmond Mushroom Festival took home a "Best in Class" trophy at the 2013 STL European Auto Show joined 800+ other MINIs at MINIs on the Mac in August 2013 dusted off autocross skills at a few SCCA Solo events mixed it up in Guest class at a NCCC Corvette autocross Lots of good motoring! Oil changes at home + MINI's included ones, front pads, rear pads, set of spark plugs (JCW tuning kit: 30k miles, by MINI). So just wear items, happy about that, and hoping that continues! Hope to see a few of you, again, at MINI events this year!
