    Hello everyone :) My name is Pavel, I'm from Moscow, Russia. About 2 weeks ago I bought a '2007 MINI Cooper S. I still have some things to repair (thanks to previous owner), but anyway I love this car:)

    Thank you all!
    It's '07 Cooper S, 61kmiles (102kkm), AT, Chili Red interior. It was prevoiusly owned by a girl, who didn't know much about manteinance, so I had to spend about $3k to replace fluids and stop oil leaking from the engine, and fix front suspension. I still have to replace the brakes (all 4 rims and pads), and (most important) - get one more ashtray.
    I will post more pics as soon as i get new DRL :)

    земляк. Welcome. I am stating to notice that most Russian dash videos end with the exclamation of: "блядь!"

    I'm sorry for that exclamation. I guess that at that moment I expirienced very strong emotions and I couldn't control myself completely. It was not easy to remain calm when some truck attacked my car with a Hyundai.

    No worries. I have lived in USA for 34+ years and I still scream that. Even during close calls.
