HI Imma new here
So I decided to finally stop lurking around here and registered and all that.:beerbang:

My name is chris, and I live in SoCal and my Mini is an 05 blue R53 that I picked up about 2 months ago.

A little backstory...I actually started looking at getting a Mini almost 10 years ago, but at the time life and the fact I was trying to buy a house :eh:, was happening. Fast forward to now and I finally found one I was happy with (read, not totally trashed and abused) and sealed the deal:tu:.

Aside from cleaning it up and fixing some minor little things that I found afterwards, replacing the f&r brakes and rotors, surge tank, yanking the SC off to change the oil at both ends and installing a CAI, I'm slowly but surely making it more my own and modding all the crap I need to mod.

Coming soon will be a pulley, exhaust and wheel upgrades along with removing those stripes and getting some new much cooler ones installed.

Anyways sorry for the crap picture quality in my garage, and the dirty car...I promise to detail it and get some proper pics later.

welcome to the m|u! Did you do the fancy flame painting on the garage wall? Nice design on the walls and nice car

Thanks, yes I painted the garage. It's actually the second one I did. The first was a more traditional looking color with oranges and reds and then I did the floor to match. It was pretty sick looking.
