A little disturbance

Jessica and I flew to Phoenix over the weekend and picked up this little jewel to be my car for the summer (probably longer ).

I didn't see a car in any of those pictures. Better keep Jessica for longer than the summer!

Re: A little disturbance

The ride was very good with the exception of snow, fog and cold weather over Tioga Pass and almost all the way to Hwy 49.

Very nice topless S. My wife is jealous. She loves the convertibles, I just can't get along with the looks when the top is up. Nice color too.

I'll put your pic up as desktop background just to tee her off.

Re: A little disturbance

You'll have to "put up" with the supercharged engine instead of the newer turbo (the Mini S convertible gets the turbo engine in 2009) - but if you're so inclined, you can boost the power of the engine just by changing a pulley. The turbocharged engine can't do that.

I love my GT and my other BMW bikes - and I love my turbo Mini S! Enjoy the drop-top.

Re: A little disturbance

Hey Bob, I am sure at some point I will want more power but it does have the John Cooper Works package on it and has a little more umph over the standard S. They claim about 45 more horsepower.
