It is. I still love mine after 4 years.

This seems reasonable to me.

I love mine :]
Tons of fun to drive!

This "fun drive" concept is so foreign to me that I can't convince myself it exists.

I think you should dress yours up as Rudolph too - like jenx does....

Rudolf the orange-nosed reindeer?

you got one???

I have coveted those vehicles for years but could never bring myself to buy one because rumor has it that they are like VWs, fucking expensive to repair
abmann From: abmann Date: December 17th, 2010 02:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, I finally caved. The previous car was getting old to the point where any repair probably isn't worth it and it is HORRID in the winter.

I got the extended warranty to help mitigate costs like that. I've heard great things about reliability and I'm hardly an aggressive drive so I'm not worried. :)

I envy your choice in vehicle Sir.

One day, I too, shall own a mini.
Metallic green with seat warmers for horrible Wisconsin winters.

All minis that come to Mini of Madison have the cold weather package!

There's one in stock right now that is green metallic with green leather interior. :) I saw it while I was there:

Alas, I purchased a vehicle in August after Ian and I officially split.

Good price and only 6300 miles on it. Still has the original warranty on it and everything.

Plus, with working at a dealership, I don't know that I would ever be able to live it down if I bought a car elsewhere. Though the new Mitsubishis that they have are pretty sweet.
