Default Rally's Royal Grey R53

I figured I would start a thread for this since people were curious. It'll be a while before she starts getting modded. I already love this car though.

06 R53 Royal Grey MCS with 48k miles and a load of options. I got lucky and it came with an Alta 17% pulley on it already to my surprise.

I'm sure this will surprise everyone, but the current plans are wheels and a drop. I may be tempted into the engine bolt-on list as I do love the SC's whine and wouldn't mind matching it to an exhaust and intake howl.

Reasons I'm jealous.

1) Royal Grey- Second best color MINI ever offered behind Solar Red.

2) Chrono Pack- Every time I run across a chrono pack equipped MINI I seriously consider what it'll take for me to have it.

3) Low miles for the age, it's getting harder and harder to find well-equipped R53's.

So there you go.

I think a modest drop and some wheels, nothing too crazy though, would be perfect for this car. It'll be a good daily while you get turn the 2002 into epic epicness.
