I hear ya, but this is different... The end-link knocks are there, too... But this is only when turning/accelerating on turn.

I'm thinking about switching to the Vmaxx end-links. Might do it tomorrow. Let me know if you want to stop by and do your ride, too.

Later,
Leo.

Ok, just got the new (facelifts) installed and also the smooth grill + trim... Def. makes a difference in the appearance.

Huge improvement. Cleans up the front end a lot without the groves in the grill surround.

Ok, finally got around to washing it..
Sorry, lame location (same as always - driveway), and pretty much same angles. We're due for a photoshoot here in FL *ahem, Wake!*

I'm considering an R53 throttle body (if there are any differences, still not 100% sure)... And then it's onto a tune, finally (but many guys that work on MINIs are afraid to dyno-tune mine because of transmission)...

Then maybe 2 or 3 years off - you know how I roll. lol - and get a front lip. I also wish I could find a set of OutMotoring's gauges in kph but OEM color. My interior dash matches that gray perfectly, and the one they offer is a lot darker...
