Australia What's new on your MINI?

Hi All

Just thought that I'd start an Aussie thread for new additions to your MINI.

To kick it off, I start with some additional bling bling that I've added to the engine bay.

A bit of a tight fit over the battery box.

Yes, I've added a Whiteline strut tower brace.

Chris

What happened with the old one?

I've got a Aero Grill that I'm going to fit to my stock MCS bumper.
Got a muffler deleted
Seriously considering a pulley.

that shot has been in my gallery since the first week I had the car....
and I did post it:

http://www.mini2.com/forum/showthrea...93#post1319593

As for the c-class antenna....I was going to buy one, but it was $96 from the merc parts dudes....My dad has a C-class, so he told his dealer, and he said "leave it to me"...next thing I knew he gave me a free antenna (he got a bottle of scotch in return...)...

....apparently he took it off one of the demo cars while it was being serviced. he said they'd notice it was missing...not know where it was, and then order a new one and no-one would ever mention it again.... ....and there I was, with possibly the shortest antenna you could put on a mini.....

and oh yeah.....custom number plates....
