Originally one BMW dealer fitted the (promini) pulley, and it went on like this:

So I took it to another dealer and asked them to re-fit it. They said they couldn't make it go on properly and not to worry - the belt would be fine.

When my warranty expires, BMW is never touching my car again!

Anyway...this fun follows a pretty good week for the mini.

I bought some new wheels (Advan RG-II replicas) and am getting them powder coated in a different colour.

Ordered some Toyo Proxes 4 205/45/17.

Ordered a Miltek cat-back...

Hurrah!! It all arrives next week!!!

for now....the weekend will be taken up with re-fitting that pulley and chillin' out in the (already) hot aussie Spring...

Yeah...looking forward to it. Don't worry..I'll post straight away!

I'm currently on S-lites and runflats. A horrible combination of weight and third-world ride quality...so any change will be good!

Thanks

Actually...there's a hint of metallic in there....it seems that the hint is so discrete that you can't see it unless it's in the sun....

I think I'm going to give them a couple of layers of polish (will try it out on the back of one first..)

Replica RG-IIs? I'm guessing Rota Boost?

Nah...'Lenso RC-II' (cheeky, huh?)

Cheap rip-offs....but they look ok and are light...I'll see how many weights they need to balance...

Couldn't afford to get real ones at the moment - remember, Oz is so far away that buying good stuff from overseas becomes an exercise in paying frieght and import duties...

Problem is, no-one will mount non run-flat tyres on run-flat rims here in Canberra (there was a lawsuit a few months back apparently - a normal tyre came off the bead on a run-flat rim and caused an accident)...so I figured it was a thinly veiled excuse to get some other rims. To put it into perspective...these rims and decent tyres together cost less than a new set of run-flats....
