So yesterday I found after graduating with my Bachelor's degree my parents had custom ordered me a new 2014 MINI Hardtop. I am so excited to get it with a custom package that seems like it would fit me perfectly. My MINI is currently "en route", however I've tracked the ship (Oberon) and found it ported in CA 5/14 at 1am and left the port 5/15 at 4am. I am so excited to be a new MINI owner, never had one or known someone closely who's owned one. It's been my dream car forever, and coming from a basic model PT Cruiser.

My package includes pepper white with same color top, automatic step-tronic, off white dash surface accents, HUD, sport and heated seats, Mini Connected, Navigation, back up camera, rear park distance control, white turn signals, comfort access, real time traffic information, and other stuffs that seemed too generic to mention.

Any MINI advice is appreciated. so excited!!

My dad bought me a Mini in 1963 as I set off for University, probably as a reward for decent high school exam results.


I ultimately got my degree in mechanical engineering, most of it was theoretical but the Mini demanded much hands on mech eng just to keep it going.


I kept it for about 10 years and drove the breadth and depth of the UK in it on honeymoon during that time.


Happy days, I hope you enjoy yours as much as I did mine!
