I happily owned a 2004 Scion XB limited release in hot lava that I preorder in January of 04 and received in April of that year. I put many relatively care free years and miles on that car and it still looked new. The only thing that made the sting a little less was that the guy that hit me was driving a beautiful Porsche. It took me a few weeks to find a car that was within my financial means and a vehicle that I really wanted .

    SWEET RIDE! Bonz:D Glad to know you are ok and didn't get hurt and do you have snow tires for the mini!

    No snow tires. All season radials. This car should be better in the snow than my Scion was. I lowered the Scion and that car only sat about two inches off the ground.

    So how does it drive? I have heard people either love me or hate em. Never drive one, so don't know much about them. Got my trusty Hyundai SantaFe with 333,000 miles on it.........YUP, 333,000!

    The car is a driving machine. I just enjoy getting behind the wheel and exploring . I never felt that way with a car. My motorcycles used to be my get away machines. With spirited driving I have been averaging about 33 miles per gallon. My Scion was the same mileage wise but nowhere near as fun to drive.

    Bonz bring the Mini down to SC and we can have some fun. We have this until October and then my son will be home from Japan and this will be going to Nebraska along with a Nissan Skyline he is bringing back. Nothing like the mountains in a convertible LOL. 1471117219682-1182948114.jpg
