Default Ragnar's - 2nd mini - MCCS

Here are the first photo's of my/our new Mini.

We had a lot of fun with our JetBlack R50 cooper. But with a little person on the way we needed a bigger car...
After some thinking we thought; what the heck! we like mini's. everything fits in it.
So lets look for a Clubman. We did not think we would by this 'S'monster.

Next Job... Do some measuring and cutting to pake the rear strut fit. I think i did a great job. looks nice too. No big holes. I only need to order the normal seat-lock hook. i have now the adjustable one. (so you could but the rear seat a bit more to the front.) But its to big to fit witht the strut But here are some iPhone pictures. (sorry for the blur)

Hardingsan - i absolutely did! (not that i turn a roundabout with more than 80km) But you can feel the difference. I think not as much in a normal mini. So as we know the R55 isn't as stiff as a R50/53 or R56 But it works for me. So i'm happy. I think it too. really the nicest OEM wheels. But I'm not sure if they will stay..

Where did you find that rear strut tower brace?
Was it a R56 designed part?
