Thumbs up Sold my evo for a mini....WHAT!!?!?!?!?!?

Well about 3 months ago I made a HUGE decision to sell my built 05 Evo 8 RS for a Mini Cooper S. Needless to say, it wasnt easy and I didnt have much support from the local car guys, but I know I could make a Mini pretty badass and that they were so underrated and underestimated. My evo was the highest whp evo in the country running a 20g9-5 turbo (essentially a modded stock turbo), she made 384whp/360tq on pump gas only, it was caged, full suspension, about $4k in JDM goodies, and the list goes on. Obviously it was a hard decision, but I couldnt be happier!!!

Here's a few shots of the Evo before she left with the winter wheels on it. I had 18x9.5 Rota P45r's on it for the summer...

And as of 3 months ago I picked up the newest project...03 MCS

So far Ive installed: magnaflow 2.5" stainless steel cat-back, a K&N Typhon intake kit, Alta 2.0 17% pulley, smoked headlight film, smoked tails, smoked 3rd brake light, smoke reverse light, smokes reflectors on all 4 corners, Drag DR-16 rims, Yokohoma Prada Spec2 Tires, JCW front strut bar. Thats all she has at the moment, but definitely BIG plans in the future..thinking stage 4 by mid summer. Anyways on with the worst quality crappiest pic ever (my digicam is on loaner to one of my friends at the moment....and he is in the bahamas on his honeymoon )

Thanks man. Im a big fan of simple, clean and mean. No unneccessary showy crap, because when you build a car straight to the point it will look like it means business!

Thanks guys! I couldn;t be happier to have the MCS. It has honestly been my favorite car to date and I've had a few pretty bad cars. And in terms of big power, I really dont want to see anything more than 250-260whp from it, because anything more than that is just a waste of tires Trust me I know what its like to have a BIG number fwd car...check out my car before the evo (2 years ago)...

The evo was getting around 12-13mpg on average
The mini gets like 28-28mpg if I beat the crap out of it
