First Time MINI Owner!

Hello all,

I just picked up my first MINI! I have had a lot of cars but not many compare to this one! The main reason for my purchase was to get a daily driver, but the 2nd part was to have fun while driving to work everyday! I got a 2006 MINI Cooper Blue with a 5-speed. I picked it up at NW MINI in Fife, and also curious if maybe the past owner was a local from around here. I plan on joining in on the meets around the area and meet some of the other people on here!

I live in the Gig Harbor area and hope to meet up soon!



-Alex

Welcome, Alex and welcome to the forum. Hope to see you at the next event. We were just in your neck of the woods two weeks ago for coffee at Whisky Gulch in Port Orchard, a trip to the Navel Undersea Museum in Keyport and then pizza in Poulsbo. You have some great MINI roads in the area.

Awesome! That is my top choice for coffee in Port Orchard, my fiance and I go there often. I look forward to it!

Then you may see another one of our members in the area. Stephen (SMOG) and Lee don't live too far from Whisky Gulch. We'll have to have another run in the Peninsula area soon.

Thanks!! I don't believe it is. It's missing the fog lights and pattern on the side. It does have leather wrapped wheel and the stripes with silver roof and mirrors. The original owner must have just almost matched the special edition looks wise.
