Default adding Sparky to the Lineup...

been hanging out here for a while and figured it was time to permanently add my MCS to the MU Garage... funny how this makes you think about all the changes that were made since I purchased the car a year and a half ago... it started like a standard 2005 Jet Black MCS...

...but it now looks a little better, imho...

M7 16% pulley
Milltek catback exhaust
Custom RMW tune (was Unichip)
JCW 380 injectors

Umnitza CF strutbrace (bling)
Gram Light 57S wheels with BF Goodrich g-Force 215/45/17
Whalen shift machine & Tiburon shift boot
M7 CF scoop
'NAM' engine damper
Koni coil-overs
JCW steering wheel
custom painted dash (jet black)

and installed the H-sport rear sway-bar. I like to do most of the work myself - my car on jack stands at a friends place... (they also own a nicely modded MCS)

the current stance as posted previously in the 'how low can you go' thread

The new stance with the coilovers looks awesome. Even nicer than when I saw your MINI at AMVIV.

a UPS package on the porch always brings a smile on my face... got my AutoMeter boost gauge, now I have to find a way to chrome the bezel (it's pressed on and AutoMeter doesn't make a 2 5/8" chrome bezel that would go with the chrome package inside my car) and install it & make it look 'factory'... I've got something to do this weekend
