WRAPUP:? We had about 15 MINIs show up for a march?beautiful Saturday hangout.? We had several new MINI friends and also a few old-timers stop by to visit.? MINI of Chicago provided chili, hot dogs, chips and drinks.? We were even treated to a free oil filter from the service department?to underline the importance of using the stock part in this vital application.? Huge thanks to Kevin for putting this all together, and hanging out all day with us on his day off!!
