    Well I'm not sure I understand what you meant then. I thought you were saying that you were sorry that we were gonna lose. So what exactly were you saying then? I don't think I've lost anything here lately except for my first MINI Cooper but I just traded it for a newer one yesterday. As far as I know, I've not said anything about that on here so I'm just not sure what you meant.

    I got a new vehicle last November, I was seriously considering getting the Countryman, loved that thing, the interior is awesome.

    But yeah, I don't think he was talking about your car :lolol:

    Me neither. LOL! Also I'm a huuuuuuge MINIAC and booooo to the Countryman! It's too big! My new one is a 2014 replacing my 2008 Hardtop S and even my new one I think is too big. They made them like 5in longer. Changed the dang interior. Changed the speedometer. Changed the toggle switches. Changed the two out of four of the circular vents. Took out the CD player and replaced it with a jack for ipods and stuff like that. All the things that made me fall in love with my generation of MINI's. BUT my 6 speed manual 3 cylinder twin powered turbo that I have right now pretty much would outrun my 4 cylinder turbo automatic that I traded it for. I had to get rid of it because the turbo went out and they cost $3,500 to fix. I still owed about $7,300 on the car and the warranty was done. I only had 66,000 miles on it too. Seriously wanted to cry when I had to let her go but it was what was best. I can definitely tell a difference initially in handling. Where my original was smaller and more compact it was a little more safe to take a curve doing about 60 or 65. With the newer ones I will have to get a little more used to the handling before I take one like that. Last night I took one doing about 55 or so and felt it get a little sideways. My cousin was the salesman that sold it to me and he has a newer gen one and he told me I would get used to it in no time and would be blazing through them again. I can't wait. Shifting through 6 gears is MEGA fun though! My wife is getting my roof painted black like my first one for Christmas for me though.

    Why am I not surprised you drive a Mini? To me the Mini Coop is the spare tire that is stored in the glove compartment of Suburbans and Excursions. ;)

    A MINI on a spare would outrun both of those AND still get me over 30mph a gallon. Lol.

    Forget the MPG - that's a lot of faith in airbags Sir. But they are fun to watch run the course on Top Gear! LOL

    They are so fun to drive that I can't imagine having anything else. They just blast off like rockets. They are actually built like tanks too. Much tougher than they look. I always feel more safe in my MINI than in my wife's Pilot. That thing is so top heavy I feel like I will flip at any moment.

    I'm 6'4", uncoiling out of a MINI would be funny to watch :lolol:

    I ended up getting a Wrangler. Absolutely love it. :rawk:

    The dude that sold me my first one was your height too. He got in the front and my wife got in the back. I was surprised by how much room they have really. I have a preacher buddy that is a giant dude and he got in it one day and it looked hilarious.

    I would NEVER put a sticker on a MINI. There is a Steelers plate cover though!

    No way. Miata's are kinda...well... you know... LOL! Actually, I was thinking about naming my new MINI Cubbie since I got it on the day we finally won it all again. My first one was named the MINI Pearl since she was pepper white with a black top.

    Which? The MINI? I got in one, way too small for my comfort. The Countryman I could live with.

    Yeah it was just a straight up Cooper Hardtop S. My cousin is 6'2 and has a JCW one and he has plenty of room in his but it is a 2015 and they're 5in longer than my 2008. What model Countryman did you get in? The Countryman's definitely a lot bigger than mine.

    It was October/November last year, so either the 2016 or 2015, don't remember. I like a lot of room in my cars, don't like to feel boxed in. And I have long legs, don't like to keep them scrunched up. The Wrangler is a beast with tons of room.
