    Since my better half has only made fleeting mentions of our new purchase, I'm going to make it official:yesnod:

    On Nov 30 we ordered a CR/B Roadster S. She'll have black stripes & mirror caps. I had to hand wrestle Mark about the color:wink: Cold weather package, sports package, upgraded the suspension, put a little red in the interior, black wheels & got a rear fog light to fill out the toggle panel! And I'm happy to say that she is somewhere in the Atlantic heading towards Baltimore due to arrive there on Christmas Day:cornut:

    In the meantime, the JCW Clubman has turned into Mark's man car & I'm putting the last few miles on Poco the old timer. Yes, he is going to the retirement home:cryin:

    Our new little hussy will be called Ms Scarlett. Seems appropriate:wink:

    Hopefully by shortly after the New Year I will have her in my hot hands:fingerscrossed:

    Lois:biggrin5:

    Sounds terrific. Me and my Roadster S are excited for you. She won't disappoint.

    Lois, I'll always remember meeting you for the first time in Hill City at the inaugural HPMS event, back when I had my '05 PW/B. We were both up at the crack of dawn (despite the below freezing temp) to be first in line at the local car wash.

    A CR Roadster, eh? It appears that great minds continue to think alike. :Thumbsup:

    I remember reading this book when I was a wee lad (still available on Amazon, BTW) and ever since I couldn't imagine owning a R59 of another color...

    Hearty congrats to you both!

    So, I take it the roadster is "hers" and the JCW is "his"? :Thumbsup:

    Now I want to see both MINIs out in Avon at MITM 2013.

    One to carry the puppies and one to enjoy the twisties (Roadster). :Thumbsup:

    Need more pictures you kids. :)

    Don't be concerned about tracking while at sea; ships need to be near land for their signals to be received, BUT you might have to be concerned over the threatened longshoreman strike. That could be bummer. (My Roadster just got a badge holder for Christmas!

    Well after meandering around out at sea, on what I guess was a party boat, our Roadster has landed in Baltimore:D

    Dealer called and said they hope to get her to STL on Wednesday:Thumbsup:

    Mine got off in NJ, because that is where the processing center (I forget what they call it) is. The ship did dock in B-More, but my dealer said there was no place to receive it there.

    The NJ place got hit pretty hard in the hurricane, not sure how they will deal with processing her...

    Seems BMW has a distribution center in Baltimore, built after you got your MINI:Thumbsup:

    Not right this minute Mark, but YES, there will be another MINI and it will be a Coupe. My dealer is in Baltimore, so that will help. Maybe they will open a MINI outlet store, with discount, slightly damaged cars and parts. :cornut:
