    I would adopt another DS MINI, nicely done! ;)

    I wish I had room for a 3rd.

    JMC40, My wife thinks i'm crazy! I've been looking for a exhaust system for my R53, and listening to different ones on youtube for sound don't want the coffee can sound but a nice mellow rumble. She been making fun of me for it. But when we went to the Mini dealer and she picked out a new All4 whose crazy now, not me.

    I saw that thread. Are you clearing your schedule in case you have to drive back from Phx?

    I guess I'm going to have to buy those snow shoes from you. Is there a special Old Fart senior citizen price? Can I use my Golden Buckeye card? :ihih:

    Jeff has a cover that he got when he bought the JCW from me. Buy his car cover and then he can afford to buy the helix IC.
