Hi Everyone!!! My wife and I just bought our first Mini, a 2011 Cooper Red Chilly with white top! We are just starting get to know our little monster!!! Yesterday we drove him on a 80 mile trip to visit inlaws! What a ride!!! Fun to drive! Handles amazingly!!! We bought our Mini to start doing things together, we are from El Salvador, and we have a pretty big Mini Club here. They do road trips and meets!
