I bought my first (and definitely not my last) MINI on September 27th from MINI of Loveland in Colorado. Pippa is a 2013 Pepper White/Black MINI Hardtop manual and I can't stop driving! I'm addicted and I love it. I traded in my 2008 Ford Edge gas guzzler, family car I don't need. The Edge was a boring SUV that I see too much and I have never been happier to be rid of it! My 6'4" husband even fits in the MINI which blows everyone away how roomy she is. I am excited to participate in some of the local activities that are coming up that we can participate in! I cannot wait for Minis in the Mountains next summer!!!!
