Nice additions to the fleet - and the MINI keeps on going!

I had a look at Porsche 917 style knobs, and decided that I'd want this for my MINI. Did some research and took some measurements, and it turns out that the shaft diameter on old Porsches is almost exactly the same as that on the CoolerWorx! So I sourced this knob and a genuine Porsche crush washer, added a spacer to the inside of the knob (so I could still pull up the reverse lock out far enough) and sure enough, it fit like a glove!

Had to source facelift gear cables for my car, so got a set of used ones, but the shifting felt to stiff afterwards. Installed some brand new cables, and it feels just perfect now!

And because the oil temp gauge in the 3D printed vent mount looks so good, we installed a matching oil pressure gauge on the other side:

Recently picked the MINI up again, and boy, does it make me happy with all of the new mods. Car feels stronger than ever with the new BPV, guess I've been missing out ever since the engine swap. Easily dusted a mate's F56S, just like the Misses' R57S.

Fitted a larger scoop before picking it up, not a big fan of the looks but it helps a lot. To divert attention from it, we tossed on the Aero-bumper my mechanic had laying around. Fitted with some Urban Outlaw stickers this is totally allowed in my opinion! The only purpose of this vehicle is making a smile appear on my face, and it does that job rather good!

Here's some pics shot by my girlfriend:

I guess it all started with this key chain that was given to me by a befriended cameraguy, way before the bearded dude from Sheffield got super famous...

Love the details & mix of everything. And it sounds like it scoots just as well as it looks!

Today it's exactly 7 years ago that I took it for a test drive and signed the buying contract.
