Gorgeous. I'm hoping to get a countryman at some point in the next couple of years...

I know. I seen a few of your posts. I've gotten use to the clutch now. I was stalling it all over the place the first few days.

Lowering the car helps so much with ride. Just took it for a quick ride. hit the round-a-bout by my house. I'd say I'm about 75% of the old R55's ride and feel. I think a rear sway bar, shorter rear end links, adjustable rear arms, strut bar, and some 19x8s will get me there.

I'm gonna love the ALL4 this Winter...here in Colorado.

well, you know...

i'm interested to see how long the clutch life is on these guys, and if MINI makes any adjustments to them in the future.

I'm really debating on which color wheels to get from NM. Black or gunmetal. I know these aren't the actual NM wheels, but is close.

you must go lighter color on the wheels, don't over "black out" the car with such a dark grey with that slight brown hew...but you knew I was gonna say that ;-)

my first instinct is always the best one...and it always agrees with you.

I personally think those m wheels look amazing on it. But I agree with stylo, the black wheels may overdo it. Either way great r60!
