Default MY MINIon

So here is a thread showing my car beginning to end as someone requested. Enjoy. If you dont.. sucks for you.

I bought my 07 MCS last Feb. (2011) as you can see it was stock.. GROSS. Note the ugly stock wheels and excessive wheel gap.

Then came tint, alta fmic, riss racing catless dp.

Shortly after I blacked out the belt line and headlight rings and grill trim.

Then came the Misty Blue 5Zigen Proracer GN+ one of the sets used on the Team 5Zigen R53 racecar.

Then I removed all the stripes cause i think its cleaner without them.

Finally some lowering springs came into the mix..

Still wasnt low enough so I got a set of KW V1s

ESM posted looking for a good looking modded MINI in SoCal to sponsor with their new wheel. So I jumped on it and it all worked out. Ary @ ESM is a great guy and they have been awesome thus far and I love the wheel. Perfect MINI fitment and offset.

Nice ride. I'm digging the new wheels. You know if they need an R53 at all?


And we should get together soon and meet up.
