White is the only color allowed in this household..... except the stupid mustang, too late to fix that mistake.

The wife did give me the chance to sell the Hybrid (once it's back up running) and get a car I want.

2011 Mustang GT..... is a strong contender.

Nice buy, I've still yet to drive one but I can imagine it'd be quite a bit of fun! Also :thumbsup: to the idea of a new white 5.0 Mustang.

Damn that was fast. Didn't i just see you ask which one you should get?

Yep. We owned a Mini Cooper S before. Got rid of it because of the kid. Now, we tested out the car seat and infil of the kid into the car seat. All went well. So we went with what we know.

TIme for an upgraded , exhaust. and programmer?

Came in here thinking title was "New Toy (Wives)" - slightly disappointed now.

Car looks great, though!

Nice buy. I've heard they are dropping Pepper White for next year which is a shame as its such a great color.

Here is the local MINI club website: forums.kcminiclub.com

Springs, springs, springs. I don't know what BMW did to the 2nd gen Mini, but it has a 4X4 stance now. Otherwise, love the car.

I don't mind the 4 x 4 stance as much as others. It does handles on rails and has enough ground clearance for these water runoffs (dips in the road) in Vegas.

I heard this is the last year for Pepper White. =/

For what my wife paid for the Insight and what they are going for used, it's better to just keep it till the wheels fall off. I think my mustang fetish will be good when I finally get my other one done.

Nice! I think I remember your previous one. It was convertible, right?

Buford
2011-03-17, 08:23 PM
Yup, but I hated it.

Dumb color, dumb options, convertible, and not a fan of the supercharged version vs the turbo. My mpg is amazing with this turbo car too

BTW - Do you guys think I should take the front racing stripe off? The rear doesn't have it. I saw another pepper white with the racing stripe on their trunk and just think they forgot to put it on the back of mine. It's vinyl. What do you think?

Mike V
2011-03-17, 08:49 PM
I like the stripes on those.

Buford

Doesn't it look wierd without them on the back? I honestly never even paid attention to them. lol
