Completely non-Mini related, but would like to hear from people who live in, or around, the Oakland area. May have to go out there for work and would like to get an insight.

Oakland is a long way from L.A. where I live (6-hour drive), but I’ve spent a lot of time there. Until a few years ago, Oakland was a very rough town with a lot of crime, but it’s coming up and has made huge improvements. Depends what part of town you’re in, but it’s generally quite nice now, and still miles cheaper than living across the bay in San Francisco.

I think most of us are clustered east of the Mississippi.

There is a surprisingly large classic Mini community in northern California (the two biggest shops/parts suppliers in the U.S. - Mini Mania & 7 Enterprises - are both in Northern California within a couple hours drive of San Francisco).

I guess they're just not on this forum!
