Well, I did it! Thanks to a little convincing from Dan , I finally got my mini. It is a red 2003 diesel Mini One (the Mini One is not available in the US...I think it is a touch smaller than the Mini Cooper). We are hoping to get the roof and mirrors painted white eventually, then it will be my perfect little car. Even though I have had it for a couple of weeks, I finally took a couple of pictures to post. It looks pretty cute on these quaint European streets.
