  1. We look forward to seeing all that are attending the run today, I will be arriving at 1230, I have attached the parking area will will be meeting in. Drivers meeting is at 12:45!!
  2. Just finished the pre-run, the are plenty of good roads and doing a quick test of the brewery now. We fulled check out our events for our members.
  3. The are plenty of gen1s in the pick a parts. you can get one for a few bucks as long as you are willing to pull it. http://lkqpickyourpart.com/ the price list says ABS Unit (complete) $62.32
  4. Mario, You may also want to consider calling one of the two third party shops that offer club discounts. GT Peace automotive is located in Chantilly and PTunning in Manassas. Both are very familiar with MINIs and many members of the club use then for both basic maintenance, repairs, and upgrades. They are a very good option to save some money compared to dealer prices.
  5. Welcome, you do not need to buy a membership to attend runs, or access the forum. I encourage people to attend a few events and see if they enjoy it before buying a membership You do have to buy a membership to get a membership card which is what vendors will ask for to give you the club discount. A paid membership also opens up a few extra threads on the forum. what are you looking to have done to you MINI?
  6. I jokingly now call it MINIs take the Colonies 2020!!!
  7. What legs are you thinking? I am thinking picking it up in Pocono and going through Roanoke maybe Abingdon.
  8. Or we can do it Wed evening, in place of the welcome dinner. We can find somewhere to work it in.
  9. i am in for either, do you want to do the hub early in the week? I know some folks had a bad experience and do not go there any more, but I don't mind going. We could do a fancy dinner at the lodge Saturday night since I a lot of us don't do the farewell dinner.
  10. We have a run every month from Feb - Nov, with additional events like happy hours, meet and greets, and vendor events scattered in as well. We just have the February run this past Sunday, and the next run is Schedule for March 14th.

    Misstress Run

    The Mistress Run will kick off our run schedule this year. As many of us have not been motoring our MINIs much these past few months here is a friendly checklist to ensure you are ready for the twisties. Check fluid levels (oil, coolant, brake, and even washer fluid) Check tires for wear, cracking, bubbles (don’t forget the inside side walls) Check brakes (pad life, any vibration when stopping, is there an annoying squeak) Optional Run Prep Radios: charge and function check (if this is your first run do not worry, others have spares you can borrow) Cameras/GoPros: Charge and function check (did you get a new gadget for Xmas, try using it on your drive to work to get familiar. You do not want to be fighting with it at the run.) Wash your MINI: There will be plenty of Cameras and GoPros shooting the run, you may want to look your best for your close up.

Tasting will be $13.
