Cool, I'm a big Italian Job fan...

Very nice, very nice. As you just saw on my blog, I've had my Mini now for a couple of weeks.

I love it - it's the first car I've ever gotten that has every major thing I want, and it drives like a dream.

One question:
You didn't want to get the built-in Mini iPod adaptor?

An AUX jack is now standard on the 2007 Cooper, so I just went with that. In general, I'm not a big fan of the iPod interfaces.

I'm psyched to hang out with you and meet your car. Super jealous- the new models are pretty swanky.

I'm with you re: your AUX choice-- I was sure that Apple was going to change the hardware interface and haven't really looked back.

BTW, I'm pretty happy with my Jawbone headset for Mini use. It's good enough for my short commute.

And btw, just picked up a fancy new Garmin Nuvi 6xx from Costco. Can't wait to get purposefully lost.

Will report
