Back in a real drivers seat



After a two year Mini hiatus, the Gibel family is back in the seat!
2013 Countryman ALL4 in Oxford Green with white roof/mirrors and of course manual transmission!
Kids are stoked!

Welcome back to the MINI community. We need pictures.

What was your prior MINI? What did you replace the prior MINI with?

Oxford Green Monstah

Our last mini was a ‘14 R60 Silver with same options. We turned in the lease for a “family car” - ‘16 Acura MDX. That lasted two years 😂

The only option we are missing from this fine lady is the headlights. It’s got lovely yellow-ish halogen lights. So I’ve got to find a way to change those that doesn’t cost a fortune.
