    Hello all - We are the new owners of a 2008 Chili Red R56S. We live on California's Central Coast, an awesome place to drive a MINI. We look forward to learning more about the ins and outs of our new car.

    Welcome. I like the wheels. :cool:

    I've driven the PCA a half dozen times, in everything from a Jeep Grand Cherokee to a 1972 Porsche. I would love to do it in my MINI.

    Welcome and glad your car is Chili Red since it is the best color for a MINI.

    Amen. The wife insisted on Chili Red. As long as it was red, I had no trouble convincing her we needed it.

    Congratulations on your Mini and you live in a beautiful place. I come up that way a couple times a year on business....In fact...I've had "Drive Customs" in SLO install my GPS in both my last car and my new Mini.....Great Guys and terrific work!!!! All the other usual places like Jocko's & Apple Farm get visited too. (smile)

    I'll keep my eye open for your "Chili Red" Mini next spring when I'm up that way!!!

    Cheers!!
