Just spent half an hour looking at the MINI and my old Smart video files....but the BEST BY FAR has to be the Lada into a Lotus!

Its a must for anyone visiting the site!

Now all I need is for Top Gear to give my MINI to Lotus and tune the engine up into a beast!...but not touch anything else!

Thanks for putting that link up....missed it when it first came out on TV.

And very interesting to see them comparing all the tuning works available for the MINI.

Definitely have to get the BBR 275bhp when I'm slightly older and have the £15 grand to afford it! :) :rolleyes:

I know, I know...I mean for that money I could get a 5 door car that had room in the back for passengers.... :rolleyes: :D

But anyway...after riding in someones BBR 200ish bhp MINI on sunday...I want power baby! And its a small price to pay when I win the lottery.

But looking at the broadband link post above that shows all the tuned up MINIs...the BBR looked amazing! But your right, its a helluvalot of money...but the ride of your life!

15k :rolleyes:
would be easier if we didn't have things like mortgages, wives, kids etc, etc, etc :eek: :rolleyes: :D

I think though in the 'real world' most of us also have to consider re-sale etc......anyone know what the word is on re-sale value of these other modified Minis compared to the JCW??

Well why do you think I'm working so much Dave?! No wife or kids so no financial drain there? JCW Cooper Ss won't come cheap! Hehe. Though I mean that video clip shows the JCW at 197bhp, and its like a year old so its gone up 13bhp, so in about 8 years when I get mine, should be about 230 fingers crossed! Hehe!

How do you work the page? I can't get it to search for anything. Where do you type the info? :confused:

EDIT: Ok, nevermind, wrong browser!
