What your MINI says about YOU



Are you in the market for a new MINI? Lucky you! MINIs are great, especially a Keeler MINI! Besides deciding which model to get, you also have the difficult task of… DECIDING WHICH COLOR TO GET!

Spring hasn’t officially sprung yet but before we know it, the warmer days will be here to stay in the Capital Region! What does this mean? It’s time for SPRING CLEANING!
