Good afternoon, everyone!
Life is once again good. I have my MINI back, and it is running really well! It does indeed have the stock pulley in it, but with new supercharger parts, new spark plugs, and a new cabin air filter, it's running nice and smooth. I am so happy to have it back. If you've never driven one, you are missing out. It really is like therapy driving, hahaha!
And yes, that is most certainly a bus parking spot. My MCS deserves nothing less. :P
Just kidding. And no, my whole life does not revolve around my car in order to be good, I'm just excited to have my car back. You get attached to your vehicle more when it's fun to drive, for better or for worse. I was never this attached to the Saturn SL2....
