R53 Cooper S with Red Recaro Millenniums

Finally fitted those Recaros I was using to play Gran Tourismo on PS3 onto the Mini.

When planning for the fitting, was originally planning to purchase some universal rails and make up some brackets to suit.

However when I visited the Recaro dealer here in Melbourne Australia, they happened to have a kit for the Mini... being safety related... I decided to bite the bullet and went for the full kit..

It's a pitty really.. cos I'll need to sell the Mini shortly after Chrismas as I'm moving to Asia for work..

That very afternoon... got soo annoyed with the Mini buzz, took almost every interior panel off and sound deadened it... most say it's Mini Character... whatever.. it's poor engineering...

Tried to add minimal weight to the car, as the goal is to have no buzz from everyday driving instead of a top audio installation, so I didn't apply full coverage of DynoMat.

There are still some vibration around.. but it's mostly gone now.
