Hi,

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.

Thanks, Thomas

Welcome.  Looks good.  You may want some arch extensions.  Many things are faster but nothing feels like driving a Mini.
