    Introducing.... STELLAtoo, my 2009 JCW (Stage 2) Clubman! A fantastic opportunity was presented to me and I jumped at the chance!!

    That means I traded it for my previously-awesome 2006 Black and Pink Cooper S, STELLA... but I am excited for the opportunities the new JCW Clubbie will bring!

    Congratulations Christina!

    Do early days with STELLAtoo remind you of the early days with Stella?

    Steve: They totally do! The love is back... but honestly, it never left. It was sad parting with STELLA. Even though my boyfriend is buying it and trading in his MINI... so STELLA is staying in the family.

    But the giddy excitement of discovering little details about your MINI? That feeling is back :D

    Very cool!

    If STELLA is going to be your boyfriend's car...will he keep all the pink on there or will that be history soon?

    He's taking the pink off!! Her name will still be STELLA but I think the feeling associated with her left when I took her plates and shiny disco antenna ball off. Especially when the pink is removed... it will feel like another Astro Black Cooper S. But she is still an amazing car. Tons of motoring left in her and it made the decision for me to upgrade a very emotional one because I was already so established with STELLA. But opportunities come at the most inopportune times and you just have to go with it!

    Thanks KittyMini! It definitely will in the Spring!! I am giving myself some time to brainstorm since I have a lovely blank canvas and a billion ideas to work with :D:D:D

    Thanks MightyStripes!! Keep your eyes on this thread... I will post my updates with her as we get closer to the Spring and a big unveiling then when the design is decided on (for now... as the MINI is a constantly evolving art piece and it will never be "completely finished"!)

    Thanks Twindad! I love the JCW!! I am not a crazy driver and safely obey rules of the road including speed limits (and everyone should) but you can still feel the power and gloriousness of the JCW in a daily situation. That's what I think makes it such an amazing car. Because you know it will be awesome on the track and speeding down the highway, but it's in daily situations that you really appreciate the power that's sitting there waiting for you!

    Dragon? For sure!! BUTTT probably not this year as I am driving out the the west coast of Canada (Vancouver, B.C.) as a graduation trip... 4 day or so drive out there from Toronto, Ontario. Then I wished that AMVIV was in April/May/June and not March when my exams are so I could go (so that will be next year instead). The Dragon will probably be next year too because I have the last exams of my undergrad degree (aka the hardest ones) righttt before - I don't want to be distracted with planning a trip when I should be studying!

    Thank-you to everyone else who commented with the kind words about STELLAtoo!! :Thumbsup:

    Westcoast? Vancouver? Speaking from experience, bring an umbrella :Thumbsup:

    Thanks Rixter!! I will definitely PM you when it gets closer to trip time (aka when I have a date approximately set). Probably summer sometime. I would love to get more MINIs involved with this and pick some up along the way as I drive so I will work on that too :)

    For anyone who is out of the loop... it is Sideways (aka my bf) who bought STELLA!! He is taking off the pink though :(

    Toronto to Vancouver in 4 days sounds kind of slow, you going to stop and sleep on the way:Thumbsup:
