i know you might hate me for this but

check if your car has been in an accident before, i doubt anyone would go through the trouble and pull the lower chrome surround and swap it for a 02-04 one

i understand a good strut spring combo is essential.. maybe i was reading early threads of vmaxx but ti seemed as though people were saying its basically a kw variant v1.
im not new to modding cars just new to minis. and i wont be auto xing often.. maybe two or three times a year.. seems like the nice weather in NY never lasts so itll basically just be for daily driving..

and to alpha motoring i can do my best to check.. not sure how id really find out though
