    Re: ‘06 Mini JCW - Jacktown

    Drat! Sorry to hear about the date of the RSX. Too tip! Buy the Mini and tell her you’re storing it for a friend. (I’m storing quite a few cars for friends at home ;)

    Yeah that place loves their Minis. I’ve never seen anything older than a very late R56 though. Mostly 2015+ My interest dwindles after ‘06.
