MINI Icon 1st Gen Cab Red James' Hot Hot Hot SpiceOrange R57 - 10th July 2013, 12:20 PM

Project Thread:

Hi my name is James Owen I have just turned 21 and my mini was purchased July 2012 from Oxford. I spotted you guys after seeing a sticker on another persons mini so thought I would come say hi.

This is her sitting with the rest of the convertible house hold



This is how she stood after I gave her a good clean!





Since I have had her I haven’t done a lot to her apart from change a few bulbs.







And then I fitted the JCW Upper grill.



This is how she stood at the Modified Nationals 2013 with car club Aggressive Rides [AR]. They are a great bunch who I met from 206info and this club was made for the people who let their 206’s for new cars.



Since then I have fitted a pioneer 12” sub in the boot as it was only 15 off ebay with an amp. I used to be a bit of an audiophile in my 206 with high end Focal and JL stuff and custom fibreglass bootbuild etc but I’m gonna keep the mini simple.

Well it was my 21st Birthday on the 5th of July and my parents got me new plates! JO11 WEN which kinda looks like J OWEN.



And best of all my girlfriend made me a mini cake to look like my car!!



I then got the plates on and took some quick pics! Car isn’t the cleanest of ways but I thought with the new plates on some updated pics were needed.











As you may have guessed I’m a bit of a OCD clean freak…. I love getting that mirror shine. Here are a few pics of the shine I like!!







I still have a few surprises to come but here is a little sneak peak!! :O



You guessed it AP Coilovers yipeeee.
