MINI Icon Blue R53 jcw - 25th June 2013, 08:13 PM

Hi guys,


Back in a r53 after, to me, the disappointment of the cooper sd. I now get smiles to the gallon lol.

This is my 6th Mini, and I almost forgot how good the whine was

Anyway, some pics. I have since detailed it, removed the poorly areo kit sticker and changed for a stubby aerial.










Cheers

Adam

Cheers Chris,

I must admit the wheels confused me initially as I used to have the burnished ones. I like them, although I am planning on 16's for winter

Plans are to change the ebaich springs for coils, re do chipped belt line, better brake pads and discs, uprated inter cooler and some carbon bits lol
