    Hello fellow MINI enthusiasts of the greater Chicagoland area! Whether you live in the city, the outlying 'burbs, the collar counties or are a frequent visitor of the area, here's the spot to introduce yourself to the group and get to meet other like-minded MINI friends.

    Keep checking back to see if you recognize someone you've passed on the roads or someone you've met at a club outing. The more MINIs the better!

    Here's what we need from you:

    • your MINI(s): (year/model/color)
    • what you've done to it: (engine mods/graphics/bling)
    • Club affiliations: (MINI clubs/groups you're a part of)
    • any cool MINI things you've attended (local/national): (ie MOTD, MTTS, AMVIV, etc)
    • anything else you'd like to share: (just as it says...)

    Post a pic of your MINI also!

    To keep the thread clean, lets limit the posts here to intros and start another thread for friendly banter.

    Lets see who's out there!!

    6 weeks ago I bought I used 07 red and white hardtop S. After getting a check engine light last week and needing a carbon cleaning, I found this MA site. Then the club forum. I love this little car and look forward to attending some Mini events.

    2005 MINI Cooper S Hardtop, Hyper Blue
    I've added a magnetic decal that says "Actual Size"
    I just joined the Chicago MINI Motoring Club
    I haven't done any cool club stuff but I will be soon. I'm joining the Spring Drive to Wisconsin on the 14th.

    I am glad to finally have a car that I can be proud of. I got mine about two weeks ago and have been loosing sleep because all I want to do is drive, drive, drive.

    Congrats on the New-to-you R53 and welcome to M/A!!

    The Spring Drive is a great first event.. Lots of MINIs (and perhaps a classic Mini or two) are already signed up. Looking forward to meeting you.. I'll be the guy in the Red/White Cooper
