Getting Small

Well, I did pick up my MINI last Saturday (December 17th). I guess you could say Christmas came a week early. I have to say, I've been smiling ever since. The ride is a little rough due to the stiff suspension and the run-flat tires, but it is fun! Probably the most painful aspect of owning a new car...the break-in period. For the 1st 1250 miles, I need to keep the RPMs under 4500 and the speed below 90MPH. The latter is easier than the former! This car WANTS to go, but I have to reign it in. So far, I've knocked off almost 200 miles buzzing around, so 1250 shouldn't be terribly far away. Regardless, I'm loving driving this car! It's well engineered and the feature set that I spec'd for it is really cool.

Anyway, if you want to see pics of the car (and the one it replaced) go here.
