Default PGT's pimptastic waste of money

I was asked to start a thread about my car....here goes.

Anybody who's seen my posts here or other MINI or Subaru forums knows I love to work on my car....I'll get new parts out of boredom. It's a hobby and every time I do suspension, I curse and say 'never again!'. I'm on my third setup in the MINI in 12 months and my Subaru saw almost double that in two years.

On to the car.....

as delivered from MINI of Sterling in July '06, added to the '05 Legacy GT wagon and '05 Cooper S Cabrio my wife drove at the time.

I had a vision for the car even before ordering it.

I even had parts stacking up in the garage that I bought at MOTD '05, which, bless her heart....was a sidetrip on our honeymoon in Asheville, NC (we didn't plan this and had the Subaru with kayaks on the roof ).

I had a spare set of horns to install, but gave up on it without a Chilton manual. When I do a RMW Jesus head, I'll paint the ones on the car like the set I sold

next up....BBS RV-F in diamond black. The snow tires are coming off and 215/45/17 Bridgestone RE-01R's will be mounted. I bought the red caps direct from BBS. Not sure how it will work, but with the red JCW brakes and mirror caps it should help tie it in. I've also got red BBS stickers from my old RG-F's (they were supposed to be put on the lip). I might remove the DDMWorks stickers and put the BBS stickers on there.

I still need some red m|u logos....the car is crying out for them!!
