A little riding, a little writing. I'm still a bit upset with the duck.

About 100 yards ahead I hear the bus honk at a jogger. Me: Like you didn’t see the bus, right? Jogger: I know! I was trying to not push the button. Ok, the jogger was a bit of douchecopter since he was close enough to the bus to reach out and touch…

I take the R56 to Vegas, am disappointed in many things with the newer MINI. R56 vs R50. Go!

Just back from [AMVIV](http://www.amviv.com). Had a great time seeing everyone that I haven’t seen since MTTS, Southwest MINIfest or the last AMVIV (or last week). I love these kinds of events, not for the event part so much, but for the reunion part.…

I'm going to try to get him over to Jerry at Eurotechs this week or next. I'm in complete agreement that there is something wrong. I'm sure theCEL log will tell all.

My MINI, so farhttp://wp.me/p4uaV-XG

Title cribbed from a Facebook comment by our man John in Philly. And, he is correct. The pieces are coming together nicely. For those of you that can’t quite tell what is new, it would be the 17″ Sparco wheels, white, that Bruce is now rolling on. Picked…

My MINIs first mod, kinda.

Mod Log: 68,000. The first “performance” mod on Bruce has been completed. I put performance in quotes because it wasn’t really a mod, more like an upgrade. Not knowing the history of the car, I have finally gotten around to replacing the air filter, but…

That's our guess. It's been cleaned and I ran some marvel mystery through the crank case, not helping. I'm giving it a few more days and having jerry order it.

The newest mod for Bruce is tech that I have just started using. Plus a note about error codes.

[As previously mentioned](http://dbmini.us/r50-vs-r56-bruce-takes-las-vegas/), Bruce has taken to showing me the CEL just like Roxy did. As you can see above, that is the error code I am currently getting. A search on the internet tells me this could be…
