Title: Turned 15 today :)
Post by: 03Indigo on February 02, 2006, 10:42:46 PM
Well, been going some MINI Cooper withdraw, so I picked it up from storage on Wednesday night.  Decided to drive it to the house for walk through.  While sitting on my new driveway reviewing our inspection report, I happened to look down at the speedo/odo and what did I see.....

15000

What are the chances?  I hit exactly 15000 miles at the new house....sitting in the drive way.  I was really excited about it, probably does not mean much to most, but to me, I thought it was frickin cool.  So, the MINI is almost 3 years old, and just passed 15K.  I know I need to drive it more, one of my all time favorite cars to drive, but I want to keep this car in GREAT shape, so it rarely goes out....but when I do  :twisted: I love the corners!!!!!!!!!!

:cry:   that makes me sad, only because my allroad, which is roughly the same age, is rapidly approaching 60K.

the Mini is sweet Jon, but you need to put some miles on that thing.  after all, my motorcycle has more miles than that.  

 :o

That's too cool!

I think the mini was just showing you it was happy to be home.

I happened to catch 10000 on my ODO the other day...where was I? Just pulling into the parking lot at work =(

My car is only 8 months old though

Its funny you say that... I just passed 9200 miles on the GLI, and its only 6 months old.  I rack up the miles so fast, its not even close to being funny.   :oops:
