Default New R53 Hopeful

Hello all! My name's Tristan, live in the mountains of Colorado.

I've been obsessed with the MCS for years, and I am finally within reach of owning one! Haha. Looking for a black or bright blue R53 with sunroof, planned mods are: 17% reduction pulley, upgraded TMIC (Maybe from a GP if I can find one!), new air intake (I don't care who from, really), short shifter, bigger Injectors, remove the battery box and get a custom straight pipe, get some KW v1 coilovers, new wheels and tires, and eventually a custom wide arch kit (when I get the money). Also, Joey head and taillights, cc the chrome bits black, and do white roof, mirrors, handles, and wheels (If I get black) or black roof, handles, and mirrors (If I get blue, maybe cc, not sure). I'm sure I'm missing some stuff, but you get the idea. Already a member on MT and North American Motoring, looking forward to gleaning some more knowledge from you fellows.

Cheers!

Thanks all! Motoring alliance, huh? I'll get right on it.
I thought of two more goodies I want: Vented A panels from Orranje, and some nice hood extractor vents (open to anything there).
What's your guys opinion of bright blue cc'd vs blue and black mix? Anyone have pictures?? I've seen a few totally cc'd, and they look very lovely.
Also, anyone know a MINI specialist in CO?? Or even a good performance specialist shop?

Thanks for the warm welcome.
