The endplates on that wing are custom. Just get some carbon fiber and cut it to the shape you want, drill holes for the screws, and they go on with an allen wrench. The wing itself comes from M7.

That's just it, over here everyone's just got chromy bullshit so I would actually be very different, and most of the mini's I see or meet up with have stock wheels. I think I know of 1 fellow local mini owner with aftermarket wheels. Ya'll must have too big a scene that you have to be really out there to be different. Jam on the green wheels though. That would look hot on ol' Winston. Give him some flair.
Thats pretty interesting actually....its become played out up here in the north east quadrant....so many polished lips. Im changing away from my gunmetal to a new surprise color (gonna try my hand at painting )

And yes, that's randy's car with the sub's in the back.

Rota Slipstream (copy of a Spoon wheel)

These I can get quickly and I kinda dig the 5 point star shape.

Nardo's got those in full polished, if I remember them right. They've actually got a little bit of lip to 'em, so they look hot!

I dont know if you have heard of this....but this place is the best place to get rotas. Their prices are VERY reasonable. And assuming that you are getting 17s, they have lots of the Grids in stock (they have 16s and 15s too) Check it out

I truly appreciate the link. They don't seem to have the royal gunmetal Grids in the right bolt pattern though. Damn.... Though the more I look at it I'm feeling the slipstreams. Doesn't seem like there are many out there on Minis.

Edit: Just put this together. Not very realistic but its the best image I had to work with...

Ah! What the hell! I bet my car's in my neighbors yard this AM.

I think this is gonna be the way to go. I'm gonna try to find a couple more pics of these on a car to get a better idea of what they'll look like.

Thanks for everyone's help with this. I appreciate everyone's opinions.
