Hello, I am new here 2009 R56 MCS Hello everyone, Just wanted to stop by and say hello to everyone before browsing around the other forums. I bought my R56 MCS last year right around August and couldn't be more happy about the purchase. It had almost every option installed except for heated windshield and rear fogs so I couldn't pass it up. It did have a lot of maintenance issues during the whole year I've owned it but thats due to the previous owner not taking good care of the Mini. As of today, I have right most of the wrongs done previously and still have some small things to fix and/or replace. It's not the cheapest of cars to repair but it's one of the funnest cars to drive thats for sure. She sits mainly stock for now since I had to dump a boat load of money on maintenance since the day I got her but she is riding real nice now. I'm hoping to get some wheels, springs & shocks, bigger intercooler, a tune and the JCW kit sometime in the future. Cheers everyone!
