I’ve long thought that my Cooper S is not really an S at all. I need to drive someone else’s to compare my car’s acceleration, maybe have someone drive mine and tell me what they think. Maybe I am expecting too much from a stock S but most every day I am left standing at the light by a pick-up truck or Geo Neon, and that just doesn’t seem right. Yesterday a Ford pickup out-accelerated me to 70mph, wtf?

Sarah is in for her 28K inspection on Wednesday, maybe I will ask them about it then.

In other news I have a new job, will start in San Diego August 9th.. maybe there will be some performance mods in Sarah’s future… but not until I’ve finished my Commercial pilot’s licence.
