Talking Just ordered my first MINI!

Hey everyone,

My name is Allegra and I just ordered my first car - a 2013 True Blue MINI Countryman S - on Monday! I'm really excited to be here. Do you have any suggestions for how to pass the time over the next couple of months while I wait for my Ellie to arrive?

Welcome to MU and most importantly the MINI community.

How to pass the time... that is a tough one. I'm sure most people will say to start browsing aftermarket part dealers and begin the modding process. Once your car arrives you will have a tonne of lil bits to fit to it. It is very difficult to keep MINIs stock.
