    Going through stuff in the basement, I came across my box of MINI print ads and inserts. Enjoy, and post your own stuff or images from the web ...

    A four page ad from Maxim (ca. 2002)

    An actual barf bag is stuck on the second page ...

    Various ads and inserts from the New Yorker

    The Book of Motoring insert (cover and a couple of pages ...)

    A punch out "parking amulet" insert (front and back):

    An actual car air freshener (haven't opened it, so not sure if there's really a scent!):

    A collapsed "milk carton" with instructions for use ...

    Not an ad, but a MINI was used for a photo in an article in Maxim (2002)

    Thanks for sharing these. Some I had seen but many I had not. You know, you don't hear the excitement from new MINI owners these days over the things MINI would send on the purchase of a new car. Do they still send stuff and if so, what?

    I got more with my second gen r55 then I did with my old '02 r50 surprisingly.

    I think owners are now getting a box full of stuff. Mouse pad, MINI pen + journal, stickers, stencil, motoring rule book, antenna topper, etc. That's what I got with an 08 at least.

    Funny, you don't hear about like you used to. People often posted their kit had arrived and they were just so giddy...

    Maybe they are getting too much stuff. Kinda like when kids get too much stuff at Christmas---too overwhelming, lol.

    There's a whole load of threads about what comes in the boxes and comparing the antenna toppers over on the other forum....I just think those of us who have been around for so many years begin to tune it out a bit.

    Crazy collection, GBMINI!

    Perhaps you post just a few of your favorite print ads?

    Don't really do print ads, much ... but there were a few good ones in Dwell magazine a while back ...

    And, of course, the famous "secret" campaign was quite entertaining ...

    Same thing I got with my 2009, but I never reveived the "deaded survey" after purchase. My friend has a 2002 and is still getting stuff in the mail. Odd because we bought from the same dealer.

    Not sure where I got these. I think they were desktops.

    We just went serial MINI owners at my house a couple months ago

    The wife got a box of stuff (i was jealous) had the aforementioned mouse pad, a journal book, pen, 3d glasses, some stickers, ball for the antenna, etc
