Hi All,
Never intended to buy a mini but delighted I have. Studying this site which seems to be a wealth of information to see what I need to prepare for/issues I can avoid by early maintenance.

I picked up a 2010 Convertible Cooper S, slate blue(?) with a denim roof and a jcw kit. Great fun, kids love it too. Looking forward to many happy miles and excited to be a member of this forum.

That's a very rare looking MINI! Lovely colour and love the interior

Can I repost a pic on my mini Instagram page?

Absolutely, to be honest I am right at the bottom of the class in knowing what I have but when I saw it advertised i really liked the way it looked and was lucky enough to be able to purchase.

You picked really well. Not many R56s look this good.
