Newbie here, hello everyone! :)

Hey everyone, my names Phat.
I've signed onto this forum a while back however I just thought its about time i actually introduce myself to a forum, instead of just reading forums all the time. I currently own a Mini cooper D R56 2010.

(I think its also known as a Dooper as some people would say? ).

One of the funnest cars i've driven, cant say its the fastest thing out there, but it sure does put a smile on your face. It started off as a standard graphite D 2010 with 25k on the clock, previously own by my my sister. (so its one previous LADY owner :P ).

I've done a couple slight mods to it that i think has improved it a little bit.

so far it has:

*JCW anti-roll bars front and rear
(OMG! should had read up about this before buying it, what a job it was to install this thing, considering i never read up about it before hand. )
*H&R lowering springs
*Compomotive ML 17" alloys + goodyear eagle f1 asymmetric 2
*JBL GTO rear 6x9 speakers. again what a job for just rear speakers!
*JBL GTO 8" subwoofer + MDF box cut from selco lool haha
*Alpine MRX V70 5 channel amp. (brilliant amp!)
*Mini channel swap, (just so i didn't need to cut into the original wiring)

Future plans:

*Remap as it needs a bit more power, handles great but it does lack on speed,very ECO so it does make up for it. I previously own a Civic ek vti, so anything is more ECO then that.
(Any suggestions would be great, i was looking to go P torque however they are pretty far from london, so im currently looking to go AMD atm.)
*Ive also bought some Alpine type R components to go into the front doors.
(hopefully going to sound proof some of the panels when im at it, stop some rattles)
*JVC kd avx 44 dvd bluetooth player radio to go in the secret compartment.
*Maybe an angle eye projector headlight swap.
*Cooper S front and rear bumper
*Going to attempt to fabricate an exhaust system for it too

The list has currently stopped there, however it may grow (hopefully not) .

But yeh hope you guys like it
