Thanks guys

I talked to the BC guys and they're going to be making a set of camber plates for the front, so hopefully I'll be able to go quite a bit lower soon. After that I'm probably going to be calling it quits on modding this car (except I might have the muffler deleted). I fully expect to be buying an F54 Clubman when it is released or shortly after and I want to focus all my efforts on my bike until then.

After seeing this in person I think it's the best example of a MINI that can benefit from a good drop and nice wheels. It always make a big difference, but holy crap the F56 looks a billion times better when lowered! The Ferrari wheels certainly don't hurt, either.

Ha thanks Hopefully we'll be taking more pictures soon, this hot weather has kept me from washing/waxing the car. That's what I get for being lazy during the cooler months I guess.

This angle seems vaguely familiar. Really struggling to find new places for photos this time of year.

And still trying to find a different angle of the car I like.

Nice shots!

I do feel your struggle though, ever since moving houses a year ago, I havn't found a lot of nice photo locations. There's a nice spot along the water close to home, but that's about it for me.

Nice photos, I really like that shade of Green you seem to capture it rather well.
Not a big F56 fan, but your pictures make it look great. I believe it's Green, Wheels and stance.
and your camera item. Would you share the equipment your using? Nice Mini done in the M|U style.

Thanks! I have a few locations to try but until it gets too cold for people to go to the beach it's just too crowded to use them. I've found a nice marina on the waterway but when I went by there this past weekend there were like 100 cars parked there. There's also a few small 2 lane roads that run right through the marsh but until traffic dies down I can't park my car there.

It's a Canon 6D and those shots were taken with my Sigma 150 f/2.8. It was a bunch of shots stitched together as a panorama.

Oh dang, I've always loved your config, so nice... I am seriously considering it, but not sure if it is in the budget right now..
