My new toy (56k Warning tho)

Here's a couple of pics of my new Mini Cooper S in Electric Blue sorry for the size. I just didn't feel like resizing it.







And the old picture of my F-355 with the same background

Congrats on the new car! Do you have that pic of the 355 with the unblurred background? That would be an awesome calendar photo.

i couldn't find it. the only one i have is the one which was edited by a friend of mine. He must've wrote over the original file. I'll try and look for the old one.

Adlin,

Awesome new car. I was thinking about getting this car too. How does it drive?

Also I love the photo size. I just got the new Apple 23in monitor and I can see that photo without scrollling! I'll take a pic of my new Apple setup. This monitor is amazing.

Adlin, awesome pictures, awesome cars. The new mini is lookin' good. Fantastic looking backgrounds.

Andrew, you lucky bum! Those things do look amazing. I have to say Apple does have some very nice designs with their stuff.

magnificent. The grip levels (while not anywhere near ferrari; obviously) are absolutely amazing for a FWD car. Extremely able around corners, and takes everything you throw at it with little complaints. The ride is hard btw, a little bit too hard, but i think the run flats have a little to do with the quality. So if ur using it as a daily driver (like me) i hope you don't have a lot of B-roads *with badly laid tarmac* in your daily commute. Aside from that, the window (driver) makes a squeaking noise everytime i roll it down,which is starting to irritate me. But all in all, a great car. If you're stil l deciding, let me decide for you. Buy one. You won't regret it.

Great pictures. great idea about using the Mini as the commuter. Any chance we can get a shot if the older yellow car in front of the Petronas Towers with the top down ? Have fun

Well i have heard much GOOD about the mini cooper but not GOOD about the Mini cooper convertible. It is nice with the top down but when up it is ugly and hard to see from the sides because of the big fabric mess to make the top secure. I would rather get any car in the coupe or hard top version because I hate having to deal with the top in the sun(expecially here in Arizona). The only convertibles I like are the 550 Barchetta, 360 spider and a few other Ferrari's. I also like the Nissan 350Z Roadster.
