Yep. Had those on my 135i. Couldn't get them for the mini or Porsche. Awesome tires!

Fitted some new hubcentric rings, wobble from 70mph on is gone now. Couldn't find metal rings in 73,0>56,1, so fitted plastic rings again:

The MINI need some maintenance and an MOT, so I dropped it of with Roel from GoGarage37 a while ago. He replaced and repaired lots of things, oil, spark plugs, etc, but also stuff like the clutch cilinder bracket on the gearbox and the cover plates on the door pulls, just to name some stuff.

Also had him install more mods, because the exterior could do with a little more racekor. In a nutshell:
- splitter
- fender spacers
- GP2 diffuser
- Orranje G-Wing
- vortex generators

And so last thursday night it was waiting for me like this:

Do the aero mods make any difference? Probably not, but it does look faster, as confirmed by a undercover cop in a Polo while shooting these pics.

Not a lot of changes in the interior, new steering wheels, red mats and the luggage net was fixed under the rear seat delete:

Ever since installing the Newman PH2 camshaft and JCW-injectors, the revs kept hanging in between gearshifts. It only happened with the wheels moving, so clearly a software issues. Had the car mapped by Beek, that improved things, but still far from perfect. VGS-mod also helped some, but only when coming of boost.

So I sourced a facelift-ECU with JCW210-software, and that has solved the issue! Couldn’t be happier with this… The facelift ECU clearly is a lot fast in all regards, car feels livelier and there are lots more pops and bangs a bonus!

Went for a small run last night, at it really feels great now.

It looks amazing. The only thing I can't get into are the fender spacers. Otherwise, it's so, so good.
