adding Sparky to the Lineup...
 
been hanging out here for a while and figured it was time to permanently add my MCS to the MU Garage... funny how this makes you think about all the changes that were made since I purchased the car a year and a half ago... it started like a standard 2005 Jet Black MCS...

...but it now looks a little better, imho...

list of mods (July 2008):
M7 16% pulley
Milltek catback exhaust
Custom RMW tune (was Unichip)
JCW 380 injectors
JCW intake, flapless, w/ ITG foam filter
Umnitza CF strutbrace (bling)
Gram Light 57S wheels with BF Goodrich g-Force 215/45/17
Whalen shift machine & Tiburon shift boot
M7 CF scoop
'NAM' engine damper
Koni coil-overs
JCW steering wheel

and installed the H-sport rear sway-bar. I like to do most of the work myself - my car on jack stands at a friends place... (they also own a nicely modded MCS)

anyway, hope the pics look OK (still having some contrast/calibration issues with my iMac)...

Marcel.

:eek: The new stance with the coilovers looks awesome. Even nicer than when I saw your MINI at AMVIV.

Bombardier 09-25-2006 06:41 AM

welocome... and I too love to look back at the days gone by... what the mini was to what she has become.... always good for a chuckle

cooldaddy 09-25-2006 02:35 PM

yes, it's on my list but had forgotten about it. Which brand/type comes closest to the white of the xenons?

freaking nice! how are those tires by the way?

cooldaddy 12-01-2006 03:30 AM

a UPS package on the porch always brings a smile on my face... got my AutoMeter boost gauge, now I have to find a way to chrome the bezel (it's pressed on and AutoMeter doesn't make a 2 5/8" chrome bezel that would go with the chrome package inside my car) and install it & make it look 'factory'... I've got something to do this weekend :tu:
