Let’s Motor: Unwritten Rules Of MINI Ownership

mini enthusiast

You have seen the movies and read the magazines, then came the steps to buy the Icon and join the cult of MINI. You sat there going through the configurator building your MINI to your exact spec or searched the lots and online classifieds and found your Dream MINI. You hand over your hard earned cash, in return given a set of keys, which is happiness on wheels. But what you didn’t realise is that you gained something more. You are welcomed to a new family, community and world you didn’t know that existed.

Don’t worry!!! I am here to help guide you through that journey and show what it’s like to be a MINI owner and the self apposed unwritten rules we are governed by.


MINI Owner Rules:

Rule 1 – Always Park Next to Another MINI

Rule 2 – Always WAVE When You See another MINI #SaveTheWave

Rule 3 – Always Give Way to Another MINI

Rule 4 – Secretly Every MINI has a Nickname!!! – Not everyone likes to admit this
