    My wife lost her MINI key again (second time, but I guess not that bad for 7 years). I was at the dealer this morning to pick up the replacement key at the parts counter. On the other side of the room in the service department, 6 women customers, no men.

    The men are working to support the "kept" women :)

    [Comment about why more women might be seen in any service department redacted after second thoughts and a dose of self preservation prevailed]

    Minis owned by women break more often than those owned by men????

    Or, maybe, women actually repair the things that go wrong????

    Truth be known.... The dealer was having a sale on new shoes for the MINI....

    Whenever words "sale" and "shoes" are used in the same sentence.... Well.... The planets align.... More women show up....:D

    My fiance drives a Corolla and that is far more girly of a car! And hers doesn't talk like mine does.

    I got $#!+ for buying a MINI within hours of purchase. That's why I now have it looking least likely for a female driver to be caught in it.

    When mine gets out of the garage again, pretty sure 99% of chicks wont like it... But then again less than 1% actually like me... Hmmm... Might need to up my game. ;)

    I like pulling up next to hot rods and 5.0 Mustangs and when they look over I look back at them and say "cute car, try to keep up in the twisties ahead"

    PA has lots of twisty roads.:Thumbsup:

    Ha Girl Car - Only if it the Convertible!

    I decided I wanted a MCS, so I traded a Triple Black Cadillac STS for it.

    I got a MCSa (yes I can drive stick and like stick but really like the paddle shift), and bought the girl friend a Mustang GT at the same time.

    Take a moment to think about that:

    Dude - Mini Cooper S
    Girl - Mustang GT

    Seriously though I see plenty of Dudes in the Hatches, if I see a convertible there is a 5/7 chance its a girl and that same percentage that its Justa'.

    I only see chicks and old dudes in MINIs in SoCa. I guess I'm one of the old dudes.

    I've had a few cars that have been considered "chick cars".
    But then I like it when girls come up and want to check it out. They're better looking than guys. :Thumbsup:
