I have to admit I got nervous when I saw this thread was updated.

It's been 3 years since the last post. Life got in the way and the car was put away and not used. Just got some repairs done to get it back into decent shape and through emissions and registration, but I still got other problems to resolve. Might have a bad left front axle. Anyway, it's back, somewhat. I missed the extra loud supercharge whine and powertone/M7 exhaust!

Apparently the replacement steering angle sensor didn't "take" the first time it was replaced, communication lost, causing the DSC/ASC to lose its mind. Or as I put it, "vehicle felt like the left front wheel was going to fall off several times" hahaha.
Reprogramming seems to have solved it. So much fun to drive the car home into the mountains.
I've now driven a 2014 MCS with fancy auto box and a 2015 MCS with manual, as loaners. Drove them hard on some fun mountain roads. Although way slower, my old modded 2005 MCS seems to put a bigger smile on my face.

Looks great, Marcel! Still the best sounding MINI I've heard.

Woohoo! I can understand you very good, didn't drive mine for 15 months due to life, and it's awesome to have that whine back again!
