Default new guy driving an r53

hello everyone! not sure why i haven't joined this forum until today but my mini journey started about three years ago with a 04 chili red jcw

i loved this car to death and i had about every paycheck for two years into it

the red was great but it wasnt my first choice in color. i love cars with a more neutral color whites,greys,blacks, etc. (old ladies seemed to call the car cute all the time and that wasnt really what i was going for but i took it as a compliment

just recently, last week, my buddy of mine said a mini was for sale at a local dealer. i've talked to the old owner about it once or twice and i was shocked he traded it in on another car, some of you may know him. with the work he had into it i couldnt let this car go to some kid that was just going to ruin it so i decided to take my r53 back to stock back to stock and trade it in. it feels strange owning another persons hard work and devotion but soon itll be made my own with my own contributions to it. all i can say is I LOVE MY NEW R53!!!!

Welcome! I definitely like your new mini over your first. I like the darker tones too. I was a sucker for the spice orange though.

yaaa i took those off the first night i owned it, the cars amazing though i cant be more happy with it. im just hoping the new owner takes care of my chili red one as much as i did.

also i recently got everything swapped over to the black mini!! painted my autopower roll bar gold and installed that over the weekend. it looks great with my girlfriends gold BBS's...i tried to get her to trade wheels but shes not budging i guess i taught her well hahah
