10K Mile Update

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 16:00:10 +0000

Been almost a year. It has been about 10,000 miles. An oil change and tire repair. 450 hours on the Openometer. Some quick thoughts about my extended time with Hank. The Automatic Transmission I am so conflicted by this, still and daily. While my daily commute is made slightly easier by the automatic transmission, and […]

Thoughts About the Automatic Transmission

Sun, 30 Jul 2017 15:20:15 +0000

I've spent about 3 months with the Roadster (R59) now. Still can't stop thinking what a great car this is. I'm really enjoying it for commuting duties, running around town and even on the twisties. Just about the only thing that I am still slowing coming to grips with is the automatic transmission. While I […]

This is ‘The Other Post’

Sun, 02 Jul 2017 23:06:52 +0000

Tracking back for the last few months and I see that I have taken to saying “but that is a topic for another post” quite a bit. Without further adieu, here is the other post In talking about the Kia Forte, I said… To be fair, my MINI is a cheap car. Come on, it’s […]

Striped in Vegas

Sat, 27 May 2017 18:41:33 +0000

Stripe-d, not stripped. I know it’s tough to tell the difference, especially with the Vegas qualifier! As previously discussed, Todd had a plan to help Hank have a little less shine. The difference is amazing! The stripes were one thing, but the really big change came from Todd wrapping the light rings, front and back. […]

Right. I Don’t Have a Spare

Wed, 03 May 2017 20:44:11 +0000

Driving to lunch yesterday, I start hearing a very strange noise coming from the passenger side rear of the car. Like a flat tire, but without the bad driving. I pulled over immediately, got out and checked. That when I saw that largest thing I have ever run over in a car. Ever. If you […]

What The Hell Do I Do With This

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 16:44:32 +0000

Guys, guys, guys, guys, guys! Holy shit, I bought a car with an automatic transmission! Can you believe it? WTF brand of artisanal crack was I smoking when that happened. Like, seriously, what the actual (delete expletive)?!? Dear reader & listener, You weren’t dreaming. One of the loudest members of Team Manual Transmission […]

First Wash

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 19:33:18 +0000

Took longer than I wanted to get this done, but did my first drive way wash with the new Roadster this weekend. Nothing fancy, just a bucket and a hose. And I have some notes. The top is in desperate need of some 303. It acted like a sponge when the water hit it. Overall, […]

When last we met, you already knew that I was trying to get out of Bruce and into something different. If you play the DonBurnside™ home game, you already know what happened. But, because I’m a giant nerd and am feeling the need to write, you get the words. I did a bit more research […]

The Value of MINI

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 16:14:05 +0000

Back in 2003, I bought my first MINI. Got it to 100,000 miles in the first 2 years. Just for grins, I recall running it through Kelly Blue Book to see what it was worth. If memory serves, I believe it was showing up as having a trade-in value close to $15,000. Not bad for […]
