Wasn't asking in order to get the same things.. Was looking at some in a more aggressive offset so was curious how these ones fit.
Car looks great man! Keep it up

Two lessons today.

1. Do not static balance your wheels if you do not have to, you might as well not bother to balance them.
2. Do not get in a hurry with your alignment. You WILL be driving angry on your way home.

Oh well try again next week when I have an open window again.

I guess that goes for most things done in a hurry... I once roughed up my hand quite bad trying to change a side light bulb in a hurry. And lost my strut brace while replacing the front bumper in a hurry. Etc...

MINI's + hurry = bad combo

epic build man. I too am in love with carbotech's. Bedding them in sucks but other than that they are fantastic.

Are the stock rear R56 calipers also bigger than the stock rear R53 calipers?

Those somehow look bigger than 15s, not too far off the size mine look like. Dish looks amazing, much prefer these over the PF01s man. Nice job

How you finding the R1R's?

Much prefer it on the OEM bumper/skirts.... I'm pretty bias though
