Default Larry's 05 MCS

OK, pics to come, but I have an 05 MCS, my second. Traded my 03 MCS for this one in April 05, March 05 build date. Bought off the lot at Brecht MINI. Has almost 46k miles, as I had to commute about 300 miles per week to a consulting gig for a while, now I work pretty locally, so the mileage has stopped piling on.

OEM set up:
Sport Package
LSD
Rear fog light (great for scaring the crap out of tailgaters)
17" Web Wheels w/ Run Craps

Upgrades so far:

Stage 3 clutch and lightened flywheel
15% pulley
Pilo CAI
Front strut bar
Rear strut bar (not currently mounted)
22mm rear sway bar
Goodrich summer tires to replace run craps (now also needing replacement)
German front license plate (makes this thing REALLY fast)
AUX adapter

Warranty work so far:

Bum clutch (see above) - NOT done under warranty (denied warranty by Brecht)
Water pump
Window regulator - passenger side
Engine mounts x2

I do my own oil changes every 5k or so.

I'm not going to get too crazy with this car, since my son will probably inherit it in a couple of years.

Before the MINIs I had a BMW Z3 M Coupe.

I'll pull some recent pics off the camera and post them.

Yeah, commuting in an M Coupe with 18 MPG was no fun. And truth be told, the M Coupe was my mid life crisis mobile.
