New Mini Roadster Owner

Hello Y'All... Im a new mini owner but an long time enthusiast. I have always wanted a mid 80's mini but here in my area there few and far between. (Memphis, TN) So when the roadsters and the coupes come out I really liked the way they looked. After finally convincing the wife our Yukon no longer needs to collect dust in the garage she said ok to me getting one. So I hope yall dont mind answering questions cause Im sure Ill have alot. So for some details. 2014 Mini Cooper S Roadster. Pretty basic package but that gives me room to tinker. LOL. Nice meeting Y'All.

Thanks!! The drive home was great yesterday. Havent went any farther yet but this weekend it will!! LOL.

Been looking in the stereo section and Havent ran across this yet but what are my upgrade options from a basic stereo to say the NAV setup or just a better setup in general.

Thanks again..

Welcome to NAM! That looks like a slick looking roadster and will be loads of fun zipping around all the lifted trucks I saw last time I was out in Memphis!

I love how the stand out as well and they are smaller like the original minis were. Not as small but close. I love it. Just like driving an over sized go-kart! !

They really do stand out so much more! I get more people wrenching their necks looking at it versus when I had my 2009 R56S. Love yet at the same time hate the fact they are not made anymore.

Ah, looked like white in that first pic. The light silver is very close to white when photoed.

Top down is so much fun.

It is very close!!! Top down was great in the morning but afternoon the heat index was like 110 so the top went back up. Lol. I am really surprised about how quiet the inside is with it being a convertible. My jeep was never that quiet with the soft top. Trying to figure out what mods I wanna do first. Probably end up with a CAI first. I like the ones I've see that attach to the hood scoop.
