So I finally thought I'd start a thread again, and it seems worthwhile now there's been some progress too...
2006 06 Cooper S
OEM Heated Recaro's
Full Bluetooth + Voice Control
Auto Climate Control
...And quite a lot more from the factory!
This is a brief thread of most of the changes, it's had a few things appear that aren't photo'd but they're fairly insignificant, and it's had 4 services in the 18 months or so that I've had it, more than it had had in it's life!
So... onto the pictures
As I bought it
Tried it without the Aero stickers for a bit
Wasn't too keen on the plain look so a new set was bought
Bought some Bullet wheels as the Web Spokes were starting to peel and I didn't fancy the hassle of split rims
Painted the calipers and discs to tidy them up a bit
Just a view of the seats
Got rid of the RC car aerial
As it stood for a while
Picked up an iPhone cradle so that I can charge and use the phones aerial for signal
Bought a pair of the Cabrio strut braces, little difference if any, but they were cheap
Picked up an eBay bargain
A JCW Gearknob and Handbrake handle found their way on too
This also found its way into the engine bay, huge difference in supercharger noise!
Picked up some blue mirror caps to start losing the chrome
Some proper stoppers appeared on it too
Clearance was increased with a 5mm Eibach spacer
It was still a tight fit!
These stickers were off eBay after I'd seen a few used cars popping up with the foglight surrounds in black
Sorted some replacement OEM rear brakes and HEL braided hoses
The to do pile
The M7 brace was a welcome addition
Then another purchase came along...
Was quite happy with how it was looking now
I'd been toying with the idea of taking the rear seats out for ages, and finally got round the buying the GP seat delete, so that was trimmed down and fitted
Then this weekend I fitted a Superflex lower engine bush insert which has completely transformed the drive of the car, would highly recommend to anyone for £20!
And one last pic, in the Summer I went up the hills with my brother and got some nice pictures whilst they were both clean and the sun was out!
More to come, probably going to slow down on the spending for a bit as that ^ has my name on in a couple of years time!
Thanks for looking!
