I was going to say something along the same lines, but didn't want to be a bubble-burster, a parade-rainer, or even a buzz-killer. Even though it can be true. Had a 2002 Cooper'S'. Sold it before the warranty was up. Now have a '89 Rover (soon-to-be-Vtech).

In the MINI/Mini world, we have a break down of which is which. MINI's (spelt with upper case letters) refer to the newer styled ones from 2001 to present day. Mini's (spelt with lower case letters) refer to the classic style from 1959-2000. 

Hope yours brings you joy and what you're looking for. Motor on.

.
Simple recipe for Excitement:  Take 1 Classic Mini. Throw in 1590cc's of engine. Add 5 gears. A dash of 94 octane. A sprinkle of style inside and out. Toss in 1 MadMan and finally heat tires and pavement to taste. Recipe produces 1 Mini VTEC conversion and full satisfaction. Motor on!

Congratulations on your new MINI!
