The odometer on the MINI rolled over its 40,000 mile on New years Day! It was freezing (thankfully part of me was toasty with the heated seats). Things are going well with the MINI. My new brakes are a bit squeaky but that's ok. My new tires feel great. I had a change to drive it in some light snow and I felt sure footed. Huge difference! Happy new year! Here's to looking forward to new things!
