Default New MINI Owner - MC SiG/B 2003

His name is Cornelius...
He is always in stealth mode...
He'll sneak up behind you and BAM
He's past....

Don't let the lack of a scoop up front lull you to sleep.
Cause he's fast

Anyway - so you can be on the watch for this silky smooth speed demon, check out my initial picture. As far as I can tell, he's all stock - but that may change very soon!

Awesome!!!! I love Silk Green!!!! I wish my Cooper was that color, but no I had to go with a "safe" color... I look forward to see what you do with your R50.

Thanks for suggestion of the thread - if you hear of any other Silk Greens point them this way. Cornelius is getting that orphan feeling that he's all alone own there!

Yay! Another Silk Green! He shall feel alone no more! Stock is the way to go for some of us (like me... I'm broke...). I can't wait to see what you do though! Check my sig for the link to my SG Mini!

Changes to Mr.C well... So far the same old car...

But we are getting to know each other even better. Did a autox with the local BMW club - Mr.C stayed in 1st on only hit the rev limit once - unlike our Gen2 S mini who had to shift ... Love the sound of squealing tires in the morning...afternoon... ok anytime.

Have been thinking of some small changes but until the fulltime job is offered, gotta wait - $$$ and having too little of it is a PITA

How's trouble like CO so far?

Good to hear! She's liking it, but not loving it. There are a few roads we enjoy, but most of the roads in Boulder are pretty crappy. Plus, I owe her a really good bath and a bit of bolt tightening. She is having fun though finding the new routes.

Any new photos...

I've got a few to upload. But they don't have the 'Konky' look - professional look that is
