Because a hip replacement made clutching difficult for my wife,
we reluctantly replaced our E36 BMW with a 2015 4 Door Mini Cooper
S with 6 sp Autotrans (remarkably good, btw - the first slush box I
have not hated). Since she was about to take a month long road rip
in Feb 2016 from Portland, Oregon across the Siskiyou Mountains to
Cal, I wanted to make sure...
