    Hi there everyone. I'm on my 3rd MINI now. Owned an '03 Silver Cooper S followed by a Blue '08 Cooper Z Clubman. Been MINI-less for a couple of years and since I'm a sucker for punishment, recently bought a dark grey '05 Cooper S convertible. Previous owner kept good records and from what I can tell made really use of his extended warranty...

    I guess it's like buying a new used car :arf:

    Anyhoo... car runs good and the price was right so now I'm looking at doing some minor work like replace the driver side door pad (elbow cushion) and fix an annoying problem with the HK radio. Seems the iPod cable was shorting out the radio so the dealer disconnected it. Interesting fix but that leaves me without an iPod or external audio source and I haven't burned a CD in ages. I've been looking at some of the Bluetooth conversion kits online but still on the fence about getting one.

    Anyways, hope to find out some good tips on the forum!
