The Tit-Wagon and his Mini Adventures...
Well...'spose it's time for me to park in 'the garage' too...

The Tit-Wagon is:
An '05 DS/B MCS with [what's marketed in Oz as the] Chilli pack - climate, HK, black rubber mats, cordoba interior, driving lights and phone prep..

Colour-coded aero kit
Eibach springs
Promini 15% pulley
Alta CAI
Alta gauge pod
Miltek Cat-back
17x7 inch Lenso RC-II (Advan RG-II copies) or Routecompany R90 fakies
Kumho Ecsta SPT 205/45/ZR17
Autometer boost and water temp gauges
Alpine IVA-D310 & iPod adapter
2 x Sparco Milano Alcantara
JCW Alcantara/Leather 'fatty' steering wheel
Whalen - plain lump-of-steel design!
Audi TT Shift boot
Polyurethane numberplates
Black M7 Strut brace
Nology Plug Wires
NGK BR7EIX plugs
Lots of stone chips...
and a home-made glove box organiser...

Mods that have come and gone..
18x7 inch Millie Miglia HT3's + Falken rubber
White Rear Lenses, brake light and rear fog
Alta 30mm lowering springs
Toyo Proxes4 205/45/ZR17 88W tyres
Sparco Evo2 bucket
Merc C-Class stubby antenna (Alpine HU can't tune a radio station to save it's life)

Plans: (fun-tickets pending...)
Got an obx header sitting here in front of me (magnaflow cat on order)
2% crank pulley
M7 aerogel header heat shield
Pull the back seats out & make a rear-seat delete....

this is what it looked like when I first got it (in the beautiful Watsons Bay, Sydney Harbour):

had these ugly things on for a while:

and these sweet, but heavy, beasties on:

Night shots at the Australian National University

My interior...

round-abouts are fun...

What it looks like today:

Nice ride!!! DS has always been a favorite color (excuse me: colour) of mine. Great mod list.

Jay 10-12-2006 01:31 PM

Don't you mean your favourite colour, Richard.

Looking good! Gotta love the DS/B. :D I wish I could switch my speedo and tach. It looks so sweet like that. :tu:

Not really by choice...I'm the proud hostage of a home that cramps the ol' style a bit.

Having said that, s-lites are pretty uncommon thanks to their unpopularity....

I don't think they look so bad...there are plans to relegate them to the corner of the garage, though...

BTW, the 18's came off becase the alta springs, combined with the 215/35/18 tyres made the ride horrific (Australian roads are third-world!!)...I sold the wheels and bought some eibachs....

I don't think I'll be going back to 18's....

Slow Paul 10-12-2006 04:26 PM

Looks good to me!!!!:tu: The whole MINI is really well executed and like Griff....I want to move my tach to the the speedo too that is the hotness.....

glnr13 10-12-2006 04:34 PM

Konky 10-12-2006 04:39 PM

KiLO 10-12-2006 06:25 PM

Very nice ride... love the head unit :D

I reckon this would be a good place to tell you guys about some of the Aussie events I got to....

Today we went to the annual German Autofest in Canberra....about 330 cars turned up - we had a small mini contingent there on the loose basis that the cars are owned by the kransky munchers... Really we just went because it makes us laugh that stacks of the old merc codgers mutter under their breath about us! haha....

They had a WV eos there too....pretty cool...' the gallery...
