I've had the Mini for about a month now & when I got it it looked like this:



It now looks like this:



I personally prefer the wheels a lot more than the ones that were on it when I bought it. I reduced the wheel size from 18x7.5 to 17x7 as well.

I've added an M7 induction kit, the Lohen side stripes & after nearly 2yrs on retention the private plate my other half got me for Xmas in 2006!! Think it needs to be just a little lower now though.

Cheers

Thanks for all the good comments guys :)

I gotta say that looking at it it seems to sit quite low anyway although i'm not sure if I was to track it the handling would be even close to that of £100 spent on Eibach's or KW springs.

Mmmmm what to spend money on next??? :biggrin::biggrin:

Maybe the brakes? It's either got to be the handling or the braking. Power can be gained easily but it's all pointless without these two in place first :)

Darn that credit card!!!!!! :biggrin:

I was looking for something with a bit of chequer on it to slighly match the bonnet stripes & the Lohen ones seemed to fit nicely :)

Thankyou kindly :)

Nice to turn the tables on the comments. I think a few people were as keen as I was on the wheels that came on the car :biggrin::biggrin:
