Howdy, wanted to introduce myself

Names Jon. I met a few members last fall when we took a trip from Puyallup up to Kirkland for the Mini vs. Porsche challenge.

I'm on my second Mini. First was a 2010 Cooper S hatchback. Newest is the All4 S Countryman. Traded in speed for AWD.

I'm a member with the northern Mini club but am planning to switch to the Salish because I live in Auburn now.

I'm liking the Countryman. It's definitely nice to have a back seat for friends. I had to give up some speed for sure but its just as tight in the corners because of the All4.

Wish I didn't have to put the license on the front. Darn you Washington laws.

Hi Jon,
Nice to hear from you. I believe we met during the food drive event last year. I like the new MINI
Definitely get the no holes license plate holder....I didn't know about it until after I drilled holes in my darn bumper
Hope to see you at an event soon. Check out the eastern WA drive that's coming up in July.

Nice ride, love the color combination. I have had the pleasure of driving an All4 and I agree with your assessment on the ability to corner. I am looking forward to seeing the Paceman later this year to see what additional sport ride options they might have added.

Hope to see you at an event soon.

No holes holder, hmmm, I had not heard of this. Is it an accessory from Mini or an aftermarket part?

It is a after market item sold by one of our local sponsors GoMiniGo. He was the first after market to make this item but now many of the after market sellers make them. Does save your bumper in that you do not have to drill holes to install the factory plate holder. I believe they are sold at the dealership.

I bought a Go MINI Go license plate mount. I drove there to purchase it and they installed it for me!

Real nice people!

Dave
