    Hey folks,

    I'm new to this forum.
    I'm the weekend driver of my wife's MINI roadster we've had since last August 2013.
    It has been a blast so far!

    I'm just looking for other fellows online who love the roadster :cornet: and also wanted to say Hi!

    a few:

    Quite sharp looking. Nice color combo.

    Thanks Nathan!

    We've debated whether this was too feminine or not, or what to do with the details when we ordered it. We both made concessions so we could both enjoy it fully. She did have the biggest say on the kite blue, while I pushed for the S model with traction control and was quite please to keep the strips black. We both love the MINI yours interior :)

    Thanks guys! . . . and for the warm welcomes :Thumbsup:

    The MINI has been such a great experience. I'm always so looking for the week-ends and when appropriate for that little S button to be pushed.

    Man what a fetching roadster. Love the color inside & out.:Thumbsup: I couldn't live with the inside being white though. I'd have coffee & donuts stains all of them. :donut1:

    thx mcs2 and Crashton for the good words :)

    I've never been a big eat and drink in the car kind of person. Always enjoy being at my road too much and just prefer being comfortable when eating (except on long trips) but I can understand :wink:
    The white seats aren't as bad as you might think BUT they do require more attention and maintenance. The worse I found are the black cloth for sure, and ones hands of course... in 7 month I've probably cleaned the leather and nourish it maybe 3 times. So not too too bad...

    Whoa, now I feel offended. I have the classiest Rster and I got nary a hint of appreciation from the world's best known Mini critic.
