    Hey all. I am posting up the standard "Hello. I'm New," thread.

    I custom ordered a 2010 MCS on 11/08/09. It was produced 11/27/09. It was shipped 11/30/09. It should be arriving @ Port Hueneme on 12/22/09. I hate waiting.

    I'm currently driving a 2005 Mustang GT. It has been a good car. Reliable, fun, great to mod. However, I have been into autocrossing for a long time and the Mustang has been, by far, the most frustraiting car to drive at an autocross. It can be done and done well. Just not by me. So, after many test-drives and autocrosses I decided a Mini was for me.

    Here are the specs:
    Mini Cooper S
    6-sp Manual
    Black Body/Roof/Mirrors/Wheels
    Sport Package
    Sport Suspension
    Limited Slip Differential
    Convenience Package (with USB connector)
    Sirius Satellite Radio

    I am excited to be a Mini owner. My Dad and Uncle both have Minis so now it has become a family thing. :D

    So, that's me. :ihih: (<---BTW, digging the smiley options on this forum...)

    Welcome to the site! Looks like you don't have long to wait. When it arrives, please take some pics and add it to the garage.

    Thanks. I got a Garage started with the computer Generated pics from the Miniusa website.

    I am going to see if I can't get my Uncle to come down and get some pictures of him, my Dad, and myself. It would be cool.

    Just a tease but I will be taking some pics of the Mini this weekend to add to the garage and post-up in general.
