Default '*Ace*' and the classic Vtec install

Where does it all begin...

Took delivery of the car in August '02. Shortly after started modding. Here is what I've got so far:

Jan Tune
M7 Plasma Booster
Iridium Spark plugs
15% Reduction Pulley
B&M Short Shifter
Hot Air Intake
Whalen Shift Knob
Edge Stainless Header
Borla Race Exhaust
Drilled Rotors
EBC Green Stuff Pads
BC Racing Coilovers
Euro Tail Lights
8000k HID Lights
H-Sport Rear Control Arms

Thats about all I can remember. Here are pics of my first set of 17's. Excel TZ-10's. I still have them if somebody wants them for the right price...

Since those rims I got another set of 17's, don't have the pics...

Here is the car as it is now. Those are Drag DR-16 with Hankook 205/50/15 rubber.

I got the tail lights off Ebay for like $80. Other websites were selling them for around $280! You can't see it in nany of the pics, but when you look at the lights straight on they have a blueish tint to them, really matches the liscense plate...

Same here man. I really like those wheels. I almost got a set of those off ebay that were hot pink. I was totally gonna rock the hot pink wheels, but they were 16's so they wont fit my brakes. If i change my rotor size in the near future. Im getting them. haha

I am wondering what 0 offset wheels will look like on a MINI. I think the Drag wheels might come in this offset....15x8 w/0 offset. That might be TOO sexy. If I can't find the drag wheels like that, then it is for sure going to be...

Sportmax 002 15x8 0 offset:
Can I get a "Oh hell ya?"

Sportmax 002 15x8 0 offset. They even poke a little on this car. We shaved many tire edges with the fenders. Why pull the fenders when you can cut the tires

Pepe's pizza Fairfield? When do you guys meet. Send me a message about the info.


BTW: I took Rally's advice and trimmed that little lip that scrapes all the time. What a difference!!! I haven't scraped since!

We meet anytime, it's close enough! Just say when, and we'll arrange a time to meet you... weekends work best, and I was just thinking it would be nice to get together with other M|U members in the area! Also, you know about the Oktoberfest and the fact that some of the M|U members are motoring on up to Bear Mountain.. but no specific time now for the Pepe's get together - we just do it every so often. One of my MINIac friends and his lady friend actually head up from South Jersey to come to visit, and typically we make it a Pepe's event. Pepe's Pizza, for those of you who don't know, claims to have the first American pizza. It is probably one of the best pizzas in the world. They just opened up the one down the street from my house about 2 years or so ago. The original one is in New Haven, near the campus of Yale University. The new one is in Manchester, Connecticut.

The above is probably more information about Pepe's than what you needed to know, but, trust me, it's fantastic pizza
