Wednesday, February 27, 2013

It's a snowy day in Toronto and ST3LLA is batting her eyelashes... looking sexy as always even in the winter!

They were a birthday gift from Adam and he found them here:

How do you feel about the MINI centre speedo?

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

I personally like the large speedo as it gives great character and symmetry to the interior. Unfortunately, "normal public" opinion is not so positive. In fact the public's negative feelings towards the large iconic MINI speedo have reached the design team and they are going to do it differently this time. Below is an article in Car and Driver that gives a spy snapshot of what we'll expect for the 2014 MINI interior. What are your feelings??

The OEM MINI Ice Cube Tray is Finally MINE:)

Saturday, June 16, 2012

I spotted this on the German MINI Shop .De website almost a year ago
and knew I had to have it. Proudly exercising my (now nonexistent)
dealership staff discount, I inquired at the parts dept about ordering
one. Unfortunately at time time no one in Canada knew about it yet.
Thanks to my German language fluency I surfed the German site in
advance and could prepare my wish list for the next slew of catalogue


New LILCOOPR Cards!!!

I've had this design in mind and mocked up in photoshop for years and
finally made it a reality! Unfortunately there was a delay with
shipping my new LILCOOPR cards and they did not make it in time for
MINI United :(. No worries, I still had another set of cards with my
website on them that I passed out :)


MINI shirt vs MINIs

Adam turned his back at just the right time for a great "Kodak moment"
at SOMC's spring Rattler cruise.

We picked up these shirts from a Pepe Jeans shop on the beach front in
Bandol, France. I have a different version in pink of course :)

So this is what STELLAtoo would have looked like with the pink rims I
was eyeing.....


Lonely Stick Family/Happy Non-Fathers Day

Related to my post below: check out this hilarious ad! It's
definitely the opposite of a rear window full of stick figure family
members! ;)


Stick Figure Family

Hey MINIacs!

I know these silly stick family stickers are not unique to my neck of
the woods. I saw them on cars throughout my MINI Takes the States trip
a couple years ago and countless threads online mock the concept!

Of course thanks to the Internet and some creativity, you can show off
your procreation abilities with a more unique design!

I came across these hilarious stick family zombies on a friend's
Facebook page. If a car drove by with these on, I would literally
laugh out loud. Absolutely hilarious! Especially funny is the timing:
recently crazy people in North America have been making the news for
outlandish cannibalism - especially randomly in the street on
strangers! Nothing like reinforcing that the zombie apocalypse is
indeed upon us with a zombie family of stickers :)

LilcooprTV @ MINI United Day 1: On Board

Fun times on our KLM flights!  We had 5 flights with KLM which is definitely enough opportunity to evaluate our experience.  In one word: fantastic!  Our landings were smooth, food was delicious, flight attendants were SO friendly, the on-board entertainment was free (free movies, TV shows, music with either radio or actual digital albums, language courses, and Nintendo-like games).  It all used this nifty controller that Adam is showing off above.  You could also swipe your credit card in the above remote and send a text or email for $2.50... although steep, it could be useful in a pinch (we didn't need it).

LILCOOPRtv: Sharing Souvenirs From MINI United 2007


So Nice To Have My MINI Back!!

Thursday, May 17, 2012

After a week long trip all about MINIs, it felt so good to get back
behind the wheel of my Cooper S Coupe named ST3LLA!

I have a couple new mods to show off too... Including a souvenir from
MINI United 2012!!

What a whirlwind week and fabulous trip! Pictures and video coming soon!

Happy Motoring



Saturday, May 12, 2012

Today is Day 2 at MINI United 2012 in Le Castellet, France!  The location and beautiful weather are the perfect backdrop for an amazing weekend of MINI excitement!

Friends. Festival. Racing.

The perfect tagline!  MINI just started their Rush Hour race and following that will be the MINI Trophy race.  The sun is shining, the beats are pumping, and MINIacs from around the world are strutting their stuff in the latest MINI swag!

I was even interviewed a couple times for French TV (apparently airing tomorrow morning) and Adam and I were interviewed for an Italian magazine!

The rush of seeing this many people united by the simple fact of owning the same car is incredible.  Adam and I had the opportunity to speak to Sven - the owner/manager of the MINI Dakar team.  It was exhilarating hearing him talk about the birth of the team and his motorsports history.  He too, was amazed that this many people get together to celebrate the ownership of this magnificent vehicle.

While standing in line, other MINIacs notice our Canadian flags, stickers, tattoos, and other identifiers.  Adam is easy to spot with his huge Canada hat (a famous part of MINI United 2009 which returned again this year!).  MINI Canada was kind enough to give us a handful of MINI 10 Years stickers, pins, and tattoos.  We've been passing them out to eager MINIacs, and even branding MINI United staff members with the MINI tattoos.  Look for a photo album of this on this blog at the end of the trip ;)

I am now at the MINI Internet Cafe - surrounded by the buzz of thousands of MINIacs.

Heaven, isn't it?

Back to it....!  We still have the red zone to check out!

I have 10 thousand million more stories to tell you and photos to show, but I'll leave you with this one live from the internet cafe until I get back to the hotel with reliable wifi :)

About This Blog

Confessions of a MINIac evolved in 2006 from my former blog, Fille de la Ville. It became a MINI-centric blog after I took ownership of my 2006 Cooper S, Stella. I now motor in a 2009 JCW Clubman.

MINI ownership transformed my life in a multitude of ways. The goal of this blog is to share my adventures with the world and connect with the friends I've made along the way.
