So after a month long battle with the bank and owner, I finally got it ironed out today and purchased a 2010 R56 2dr Hardtop Mini Cooper. It gets around 30mpg or more, and has loads of legroom. It has the 6-speed manual trans, and basic 4cyl engine. Its fun to drive and will basically triple my fuel savings. Its dirty right now, and a little ugly as much of it is covered with Plastidip, but with a little love I think it should clean up real nice. I probably overpaid a bit, and I know the battle wasn't worth it, but I was too far along to back out, so I forged ahead and kicked a couple people in the ***, and now I have a daily driver to give the Jeep's axles a break. Pics are on the phone, so Ill try to post up in a bit.

Now I just need to find a safe full of gold to unload into it. :D

Wait what? You like it? I was ready for a hailstorm of jabs you've had stocked up for a long time. I'm almost disappointed

And I thought gluck had a girls car. I guess you guys can bunk together at the all girls college...... A mini cooper was actually going to be my first car. The mini s supercharged manual. I settled on a truck instead because I am a man. Or maybe because the bank wouldn't approve me. Either one

I had a manual truck for my first vehicle, then I got another recently, but unfortunately the Mini has more balls than both!

That supercharged one I was going to get was pretty peppy. It was like $18k and the truck was $10k. They approved me for the truck and not the mini

Mine isn't supercharged. Basic model, simpler, less risk of blowing up like Gluck. Still gets 32mpg without paying for diesel too. But It cost me more upfront.

I have a lifted jeep, why not have a lowered car? It's a balance of both worlds.

To be completely honest, I think gluck only lifted his because he was hoping he would get made fun of less
