July 20, 2012. Cooper S with JCW engine package, so N18 engine, but JCW and 2012 - confuses the heck out of everyone. I'm assuming I'll have this car when i die!

You don't have to pay Photobucket anything, if you don't mind seeing some ads.

Bought my '14 Roadster new in October '13. I average about 2,000 miles per year if you subtract the mileage from my move from Virginia to Florida (8,800 miles total).

Can't believe Photobucket decided to do that. Too bad. Looks like I'm out, too.

Don't get me started with PB. What a bunch of A-holes... that was the worse PR move I've seen and lived through in decades... I get the financial aspect, I understand their struggle. But they could have approach the issue in an infinite amount of ways that were better than what they did.

Totally agree! I sent them a note. It suggested that they should have grandfathered the pictures we already had out on the forums. I expect they have that type of technology at their disposal.

Wiping our pictures out like they did was seriously mean spirited. Don't think they will gain anything in the way of good PR or financial benefit by treating their users in this fashion.

I use Flickr now, close to infinite free storage and their "Share" feature even creates the right tags to just paste in here.

Good to know. I've been looking around at different sites, like Google Photos, imgur, Flickr and others.

At least we can post pictures directly on this site.

Bought my '13 R59S Roadster in summer 2012, so it's 7 years old now. My 3rd MINI (R53-R50-R59) but my 1st MINI ragtop. I'll click over 1,000 hours on the Openometer sometime next month. My favorite MINI, and it's not even close.
