Default New justa to join the underground

Hello everyone,

Name is Andrew, owned my Mini for about 9 months now and clocked just over 20k miles so far. Dam I love motoring!
Owned an 03 VR6 GTI prior to the Mini. Loved that car as well, theres really not much that beats the sound of a 24 valve vr6 in my book. But it was murdered by a ’91 Mercedes after a day of spending 10 hours installing r32 headlights, wiring up the fog lights and a full detail. Very sad day, luckily I climbed out of the window with just some scratches and bruised knees.

I am a Naval Architect Student (fancy name for marine engineer really) at SUNY Maritime and currently work at a doctors office. My daily commute is about 120 miles round trip. I enjoy driving, working on my car, photography, and now browsing this site which is quite entertaining.

I have been attending as many Mini events as possible in the area, and am currently trying to plan my own rally, which is becoming time consuming.

Currently not much done to my justa, really just blacked out trim, o.z. superturismos for my summers and that’s about if for now.

Have some plans for it in the future, currently working on adding a rear fog, soon to be lowered with a sway bar, camber plates and eventually end links, control arms etc plus an intake for clearance for a strut tower brace.

Look forward to getting to know everyone. Anyone from Long Island (if there is anyone on here) hit me up; we can go for a cruise some time. I frequently go for 400 mile drives and never leave the island which is only 120ish miles end to end.

Yup, right on the Rt. 110 side, was hoping to get a shot with the hanger open, but everything was closed that night.
