Hello to all.

I'm new to the forum, been riding motorcycles for a few years and Feb just gone fell off and smashed myself up really nicely. I am buying a 04/05 Mini Cooper S, I'll be buying it in December. It'd be great to meet up with some of you Brisbane blokes for drives and stuff.

If anyone knows an Australian company for Mini Performance please let me know. Right now it looks like I'll be spending money at www.piloracing.com

Cheers,

Steve.

I hope it'll be good fun. I want to go a little silly with the suspension and other stuff but with my shopping/wish list it's going to cost.

- 15% pulley
- Sway bars
- Strut braces
- Big Brake Conversion
- Short throw shifter
- Exhaust
- Intake
- ECU

But that's just what I want not what I got and there's money tween stock and rock.

Hi BTW

So what do you do for a living??
what Mini Specs are you getting

Sounds like it is on the same boat as mine. My Mini is arriving in Dec but I'm having it held for a week or so at the dock so I get it 05 complianced so when it's resale time I can sell it as an 05 :)

I'm a IT guy.

The car:
MCS British Racing Green with a White roof - but I only signed the lease today so I have the weekend to change my mind on the colour. I might go the black roof.

As I'm getting it:

AM Wheels there's some BBS wheels I'm keen on.
Black interior
Leather seats

The paper work says it's got traction control I don't know if it's optioned or not, but it's in the order.

When I get it home.

15% pulley from www.piloracing.com

It's pretty much a stock MCS no sunroof. The suspension I want to 'do up' so I'll play with it when it shows up.

Bushes/springs/struts/strut braces/sway bars.

after some research I'll upgrade the brakes, if it's worth it. I want it to turn and stop really well straight up. I'll look at HP later down the track. Dads car is Dads toys, know what I mean..

I have a novated lease through work so it's packaged. I don't want to do much motor wise till it's off lease and out of warrenty. Once I'm paying for it, I start playing with it.

I usually Englishfy it ie chrome GB on back union jack badges below I just stop shy of the roof decal

I was thinking of a little Aussie flag and "my name" on the back windows - WRC styles but I'm not sure. I might photoshop it and see what I think.

BTW I can airbrush so if you want anything brushed let me know.
