    Got my MINI in for warranty service so I'm stuck wasting a morning of my much coveted vacation. They have banana bread, hot chocolate and the science channel so it could be worse......but it's still ponderous.

    That was me the other day. I did walk over to the mini dealership and drove the roadster convertible sport. Nice little kick on that thing.

    If you want leather seats do you just point to your face and say match it?

    Sorry, phone died......l forgot my charger in my truck. Finally done.....not bad, only a few hours. They just had to replace the tining chain tensioner. Good as new (for now).

    Mock away......it's a 2009 JCW with 208hp, 6spd and HUGE Brembo brakes. It's just like driving a souped up go-cart. I've had plenty of faster, much more powerful cars but it averages 32mpg and makes me giddy almost every time I drive it. Just a great daily driver for a 74 mile round trip daily commute.

    It seems like such a little car for a big manly burly dude like you.

    Yep.....they'll run pretty good! Something about the roadster and coupe just looks a little "off" to me however.
