I remember stumbling onto TMMZ way, way back when owning a MINI seemed like a far-off dream. Seeing all of these people going out to "touge" was so cool and interesting that I had it bookmarked for a while just to see what MINI owners were like.

I remember lusting over an all black Cooper that was getting the interior/etc. stripped to lower the weight... was that owned by a girl (Brit)?

Judging from the vid posted I would say yes.

Yes that was her car . There was so much bare metal in there that you would have been wise to have a tetanus booster shot before getting in

Glad I could contribute all the stuff in the first post. I remember looking at all these photos and videos back in '04-'05 when I wanted my first MINI. I think I may have some more, but I'll have to go digging. I just remember those photos, and that video. I was surprised my bookmark was still linked. lol

this thread 'll even bring me out of the woodwork...the evolution occured because the person in charge of TMMZ took his power too far and started banning all sorts of people for all sorts of reasons (mainly no good ones). The vast majority of the crew stood up for one another and the core group of founders here created this site as a rebirth...and my how far it's come.

Ha...even I remember TMMZ from way down here in Oz...I started lurking in there a few months before it went under. Remember watching that SpeedTV video years ago as well.

I actually found m|u because I was getting annoyed with mini2 and NAM so went back looking for TMMZ, and ended up finding this forum. Funny...my most frequented forum now - even over local forums...

(Holy crap...just realised...I've owned my mini five years!!!)
