Looks like you picked up a car that already has some goodies.

Quite right!

After years of buying cars and motorcycles and spending my money to get them the way I want them... I decided to buy one with most of the stuff already done.

Basically, I want to fix the issues, throw some wheels on it, and add a JCW steering wheel (leather).

I'm very happy with the mods that the previous owner performed, although it's not very subtle with the Alta intake/Magnaflow exhaust...

Here is a picture of the car before I had it, with Kosei K1's...

His forum tag was agile_moments.

He didn't participate in the forums that much, but there was enough info for me to research the car before I bought...

A lot of NC repping up in here!

Any of you doing the BRP with Tarheel MINIS next month? I'd like to check it out if the budget is right. Still have a couple of issues to work through on the car.

Tell me about it. It's 5.5 hours from Raleigh, I'd hate it driving from Wilmington.

None that I know of. Stay tuned for info on the Raleigh meet. We'll probably have some firm plans after the first of next month.

Will do. I plan to be as active as budget allows. I've been on a lot of motorcycle forums so an active community was one of the many benefits to buying a Mini.

I never heard of it either.

A quick google map result shows it near Oak Island/Southport.

Strange that I've never heard of it, seeing as how I got married in Brunswick Co.
