    The Featured MINI is making a return after a 2 year hiatus!


    This one of a kind badge could be yours.

    Your MINI could be displayed right here in this block on the main page.

    Thanks to growth in membership and the support of our great sponsors Motoring Alliance is bringing back the Featured MINI, also known as MINI of the Month.

    The rules are rather simple.

    1. You need to have a Garage, I'll be grabbing the image for the polling from your main Garage image. Please visit My Garage to create and/or update your Garage.

    2. To enter send me a Private Message or email informing me of your desire to be included. Only the first 10 each period will be included. Any submitted after the first 10 will be held for the next month.

    3. Entries need to be to me by the First of the Month to be included in the upcoming Month's polling. IE, for the October MotM please have entries to me no later than September 30th.

    4. All members can vote. Playful trash talking. courting of votes and inviting friends to register and vote are all encouraged.

    5. Please limit entries to MINIs and Minis and not your other vehicles.

    So... To get to the good stuff...What do you get for being the MINI of the Month?

    Besides the respect and adulation from the other MINI/Mini owners thanks to the generosity of the Motoring Alliance Sponsors there is quite the package.

    This badge will displayed under your Screen Name.
    [​IMG] along with your Name in Purple.

    Your MINI will be on the Home Page for a month.

    In no particular order the following have supplied stuff.

    DDM Works - $25 Gift Certificate
    Austin Synthetics - $10 Gift Certificate
    Sneed Speed Shop - $25 Gift Certificate
    Craven Speed - $25 Gift Certificate
    Prima - Microfiber Towel
    ShowCar Detailing - Made the commitment, not sure what it will be yet, but knowing Richard you wont be unhappy at all.
    Mind The Curve - Badges
    Helix - A big surprise but only a few times a year.
    OutMotoring - $20 Gift Certificate
    eMINIparts - Assorted goodies
    Whalen Shift Machine - $25 Gift Certificate

    Mind the Curve will be supplying a MINI of the Month Magnetic Badge, the design is still being finalized.

    Motoring Alliance will be giving a One Year Supporting Membership, or extension to current Supporting Members.

    I'm looking forward to this being a fun part of Motoring Alliance again.

    I like it, but have a suggestion. Perhaps one month could be Justa's, then the "S", then the JCW, even different R models. Justa's don't stand much of a chance, mixed in with the group. :nonod:

    Hey, Nathan. Can a person nominate a MINI belonging to someone else?

    Sure, but then again, if you nominate someone then you'd better pimp them too to get those votes.

    Doug Whalen stopped jumping out of perfectly good aircraft long enough to add a $25 Gift Certificate to the prize package.

    There is still space and time left to enter your own or nominate another's MINI/Mini for the October 2012 return of the MINI of the Month. Just send me a PM or email to enter or nominate someone.

    Each MINI is unique and with that in mind along with the fact that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder this will be a great monthly event. :biggrin5:
