3years or 36,000 is free then they get it all back on your next two visits crazy what they charge for just an oil change.

Oh, you meant at 36,001 miles. Got it. I'm sure he's worried about three years down the road.

My wife is very hot in my eyes which means I'd never get rid of her. She, unlike my Z gives me pure enjoyment 24/7 with zero stress. My Z gave me enjoyment but nowhere near the same 24/7 area.

Nothing wrong with a Mini. In fact I just picked up a 2011 CPO Mini S (28,000 miles) for my daily. Super fun cars!

Nothing wrong with a MINI. I had a 2005 'S' Convertible. It had the supercharger and I did a Dinan intake, 17% reduction pulley, Front and rear sway bars, adjustable four link rear, cross drilled/slotted rotors, short shifter, HR lowering Springs, custom paint and alot more. I would track it on a regular basis and it held its own against alot if cars. I did not stay with MINI as they went to a turbo set up and I not a turbo fan. I like having a supercharger. I went to ZL1 as I wanted American Muscle.

I know what you mean about not being able to put the mileage on the car that you want.

That aside, sorry to hear you had to let the Camaro go.

Enjoy the new wheels.

Yesterday was the day I got my permanent hand controls installed. I'm in a wheelchair for the peeps that didn't already know that. I'm very happy with the very clean look of the controls.

You'll never get it! Get over it. Everybody is different!!! The OP sounds as if he has "OCDesque" tendencies. I too have them. I bought my SS in 4-2011 brand new. Today it has 5,700 miles on it. It's a weekend, Summer time cruiser. No rain, snow, ice, salt, slop, cinders, etc., etc., etc.. I enjoy the Hell out of this car! When I bought it, I also bought a DD. I have since bought a new DD (2013 Cruze). I understand where the OP is coming from. Drive yours how you want and others will do the same.

i couldn't drive mine daily and i check the radar to see if there is rain in the area before i drive it and i have even called friends that were in areas i had planed on driving if there was a slight chance of rain in the forecast and i don't typically leave the car unattended when i drive it but its still a stress reliever cause every time i get behind the wheel i turn into a kid again even though i expected more with all the hype. i would get real upset if something happened to it and if someone were to hit me after it was fixed it would be gone and something else would be in the garage

Best of luck with the Mini and may Your Life be more enjoyable

Yup, I use to put my Z on a car lift and I would clean the underside for hours at a time. Of course it would rain the next day for a solid week thus trashing my hard work in cleaning. :(
