    I'll miss the first half, but will catch you at Monk's.

    Happy Hour: Sine's, Pentagon Row

    I'll cross my fingers that you can both make it!

    Happy Hour: Sine's, Pentagon Row

    until
    Event Title: Happy Hour at Sine's (pronounced like "shuh-neighs") Event Date: 24 Oct, 2018 06:00 PM to 24 Oct, 2018 08:00 PM Event Address: https://www.sineirishpub.com Sine's on Pentagon Row, Arlington VA 1301 S. Joyce Street, Arlington, VA 22202 Trying something a little different... a bit closer in to the center(ish) of the DMV. Stop by on your way home from work or drive in the opposite direction to most everyone else. Parking (not free, sorry) is available in a garage under Pentagon Row, or adjacent at the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City. SOMETHING ELSE NEW: this may be one of the few events where you can attend without using your MINI. The Blue and Yellow lines service the Pentagon City station under the Fashion Centre and it's a quick 150 or so yards to Sine's. This could cause quite a bit of confusion on departure as there may not be as many cars to stand around while talking for that last hour or so... Wednesday, 24 Oct 2018 If the weather is nice, we'll sit outside!

  5. In the continuing journey of getting rid of items from my Countryman, the latest to be offered is this set of (4) white 18" ATS Streetrallye wheels, with TPMS sensors, and with Pirelli Sottozero runflat winter tires. http://atswheels.com/atswheels/en/dl/streetrallye-rallye-weiss-5l/ One of the wheels has some curb rash. See picture. Maybe you know a guy who knows a guy that can fix it? Tires are 225/50r18 with 14,500 miles and show very little wear. They've been run for 2 winters now. The size is slighter taller than stock 18", but this is not a problem (see picture). This pic is from my 2015 Countryman with the sport suspension option, so it's 10mm lower than the non-sport factory suspension. Plenty of clearance, no rubbing. Ok, if you've read this far then here's the part that you really want to know: $1100, but I'm negotiable. Cheers, Stephen

    JB+ for N18

    JB+ for N18

    No, I'm happy with the way it is now. Boredom may get the better of me down the road and I'll think about the Dinan or some other solution, but for now... it's good. No, I don't think there's any re-wiring. But, you could email Burger Motorsports and ask them if it's possible to run the N18 JB+ on an N14. There's a dial you can set inside the little box that adjusts the 'deceptive MAF reading' (my wording for what's happening) so maybe that can be set in a way that would work?

    JB+ for N18

    Ran it with my Countryman and liked it. Simply and easy mod for a little improvement in power. $140... special DCMM price before I put it on NAM! (and assuming a local DMV sale) http://www.burgertuning.com/index.html If you post here, please also shoot me a DM so that I get an email alert. I'm not logging in here as much as I should... Cheers!

    MINI TAKES THE STATES 2018

    I'm only doing the first leg and a half. Heading down earlier in the week for family plans with the mouse, then breaking off for MTTS. I'm stopping in Pensacola on Day 2 to spend a few days with old friends before returning to the DMV via a day at the Dragon... Won't be able to do MINIs Take Florida prior to the start, but hope I can link up with other DCMMers at the start and through Tallahassee...

    CLOSED: WTB: MINI

    Hmmm... I've been toying with the idea of selling my 2015 R60 to get one of the newer BMW-powered F-cars. I'll send you a PM...

    Motoring to Magnolia's at the Mill

    Had a great time at the Meet and Greet at MINI of Sterling and the drive and dine at Magnolia! Enjoyed seeing the folks I haven't seen in awhile, and meeting new faces. The food at Magnolia was great... I'll find my way to their tables again. Thanks for setting this up Devin!
