A couple changes this week

Friday,

I put some new wheels and rubber on Tackleberry.

NM Engineering RSe05 17x7.5 wheels w/ BFG g-Force Comp2 215/45-17 rubber.













On Tuesday, I installed a NM Engineering Oil Catch Can.



Next week, some new carbon fiber goodies (from CARBONMINI) will added to the interior and exterior.

2009 MCS Astro Black, NM Eng. CF front lip, NM Eng. CF scuttles, NM Eng. CF intake, NM Eng. 22mm adj. rear sway bar, NM Eng. adj. sway bar links, and NM Eng. Cat-back exhaust, JCW CF boot handle, JCW CF bonnet scoop, and 3D Design CF rear diffuser.

Hi
Car looks really great,love the wheels. I noticed you have the same tinted rear lights that I've just put on to my Mini. Question ....do you have a warning light that comes up when you first start up, because the lights are not original ? I do and wondered if it was anything to worry about even though all lights work OK. Thanks

Absolutely love all the carbon fibre,haven't seen anything like that in the UK. It really looks something special.About the rear lights and the warning light,should I be worried that something is going to give or put up with the warning, which goes out after a few seconds

If the warning light goes out, I would not worry about it too much.

The carbon fibre looks great. I have speaker pods and door pulls in carbon - shame that CarbonMINI's stuff is so expensive to import.
