so, things have changed. turns out that I am going to need a car sooner than january 2003. so, back i go to crevier mini to talk to my guy, darnell. turns out that they happen to have an absolutely beautiful PS/B S on the lot right now! downside, only has package #1, and not package #2 (DSC, Xenons and 17″ wheels/tires), but it does have the lapis blue leather interior. darnell is ready to deal on it too! might have to buy a mini today! WOOHOO!!!!
