This post is just a mish mosh of things that have been going on with Kowalski and the MINI community!
First off, the biggest event is that Kowalski (my R60 S ALL4) now has a little brother! Sir. Alec, the name of my newly acquired right hand drive 1994 Mini Sprite.
(This was the day we picked Sir. Alec up)
Next, Kowalski got some new suspension! Way Motor Works kindly asked me to test out their new set of lowering springs. These springs make the R60 handle like a Clubman with sport suspension... Changes everything!
In addition, Kowalski turned one on September 12, 2012! He had finished production exactly a year before.
Also if you are not a member of the MINI Countryman Owners Group on Facebook, please join! We have all become a close group of friends and we have just started a new monthly tradition! Every month we have a Flickr Photo Contest where if your photo wins, you receive a host of amazing prizes as well as your photo becoming the group banner photo until the next monthly contest. As of now our sponsors are a Countryman gum pack from Gary Mack Mini at MINI of Tampa Bay, a MINI related sticker from Stuck On Minis, Carbon Mini with a carbon fiber goodie, MINI of Fairfield County with a model MINI, Andy Cohen with a CooperCrap exhaust - trailer hitch - lift kit - and 2 NOMAD MINI Memberships (still deciding on which month to give each out), OutMotoring with a Shorty Antenna, and MOSSMINI with a $25 gift card towards a mossmini.com purchase! (In addition to being added as the cover photo for the group for a month)
