Default New owner in CT

New owner checking in. I come from a background in VW/Audi and some Jeep Cherokees, owned quite a few of each and then some other random cars. Worked in service at VW for a few years, etc.

The Audi pictured is a 97 I picked up cheap from a friend. It had a failing transmission that finally failed. I had been car shopping around for a bit and all across the board from Jeep Wranglers, Grand Cherokees, VW Tiguan, VW CC, Mazda Miata (had a 99 before), Trucks, Vans, newer A4's, etc. Like I said ALL across the board.

The important thing was something fun and nicer than the cheaper cars I had been buying for a few years. When I went into a dealer to check out a VW Tiguan and a Wrangler they had just recently gotten in the Mini. I checked it out, drove it and pretty much loved it from the start. A few days later I went back and picked it up.

I'll fix the Audi and actually use that most of the time keeping the Mini for fun.
