Default The Royals are back!

OK, this has been years in the making...

I'm back MOFOS!

I mentioned it before, but my son Mason is a HUGE MINI lover... He has a MINI Power Wheels that he drives around... and much to my pain every MINI we see he shouts out "MINI COOPER"

Well last night I finally scratched the itch. We replaced my wife's Jeep Compass with this very nice 2011 Countryman S!

I'll add more photos later once I've had a time to take them!

thankfully, after getting this one the wife is fully on-board. I'm going to see what kind of equity I have in my Subaru and get one for myself. Probably an R56, but we'll see

For now, I'm enjoying driving her car on the weekends and whatever day during the week that my son can convince her to let me drive it.

One thing I have to note - the automatics are really nice on these now. I remember when I was shopping for my R53 I didn't like the auto as much. Either that or I'm getting older and more forgiving...
