Just thought Id say hello as the new owner of a Mini Equinox. This is the second time ive been a member of the forum, the first about 8 years ago when I had a few Minis.
The story goes, when i left to uni I could afford to keep my mini running and with trips between uni and home, it became an unviable option. Since then, my life has taken a few paths through uni, work, marriage, house buying and a number of different cars, incl. 2 Bini's (r50 One and R56 Cooper S), BMW X1, 1 Series, A3, 2x Golf GTI and finally an Merc A45. A few have come close to the fun i had in a Mini (not the A45 surprisingly) but none have actually achieved it.
I sold the A45 and got an new A3 and a Mini Equinox. The Equinox needs work as its MOT ran out in 2015 but needs patching in a few locations. My plan is to get it on the road and do it as a rolling restoration.
I love the Mini culture and I am so glad to be part of it again. Just trying to build up my knowledge base again.
Be sure to shoot me any questions.
