Default Hi! I'm new...

Hi Everyone... I'm Jessie. Graphic designer, from Thousand Oaks, CA.

I just got my brand new MCS last Wednesday. Been driving a Mazdaspeed Protege for the last five years. I've wanted a Mini ever since an old friend let me drive his back in '02. I ordered mine back in June with every option I could get on it... Astro Black w/ Tuscan Beige & English Oak interior. Except wheels... going to save up for those. Getting tinted windows this week.

Here's a pic of it in front of my house:

Anyway, I've lurked a bit for a couple days... seems like a great community to be a part of!

Yeah, the MS Protege was an awesome and fun car... well, is. Still have it. Can't seem to get rid of it with so many miles on it. Probably end up keeping it and drive it occasionally so as not to put too much wear and tear on the MINI.

Welcome aboard and congrats on the new ride!
You should bring your car to VCR in Calabasas the last Sunday of this month!

Here's a link to the thread for July VCR:

http://www.motoringunderground.com/f...ead.php?t=7344

Usually people get there pretty early...like 8-ish or something. It goes on every weekend, but the last Sunday of the month is always the biggest deal. So that would make it on the 26th this time.

I know I will be there and I'm sure some other folks will be as well!

I second that. I've always dug the black/tan combo.
