All highly respectable HFs! Glad you're in the group and hope you are enjoying your new MINI!

We saw a a sharp looking MY/B with black bonnet stripes in Cedar Rapids about 9:15 pm Saturday evening, on Collins Road just east of the Rockwell-Collins complex. Gave the ol' but it was too dark to see an acknowledgment.

about 2 weeks ago my locks froze I got the working again however from the inside the handle doesnt work at all. The bowden cable is detached from the acutator and with the limited space (about 3 inches) I cant figure out how to attach it again.
also the passenger side actuator motor has been not working for a couple months so that just needs replaced.


For the moment I have to roll down my window and open from the outside of the car, (thank god it is a small car with a well placed outside handle)

I saw a blue R56 MCS at the Plasma Services place on Brady today. It had black "viper stripes" and looked like it had the JCW package (it had black multi-spoke JCW rims). I tagged it with a Projekt German card and if he joins there Ill refer him to this place.
