is it my imagination or is the plastic on the wheel arches & sills smoother & less grained on the 2005 car compared to earlier models?
Hi Hat

I have not noticed any difference on mine - could be that it is brand new.

I guess you have picked up the new cooper then - how you finding it so far.

great thanks tony, it feels livlier with the new gearbox ratios & i've really warmed to the new bumpers. just need to get it run in now
I look forward to seeing it on a run sometime in the new year.

I prefer the new bumpers to the old ones - I never really liked the thick chrome strip.

I am getting some Cooper S bumpers for mine (my brother phoned me this morning to say that he was fitting an aero kit to a new pepper white S and they were going to throw the original ones away) just need to get them painted red.
