  1. Not much to report on as of late. Well there is, but I haven't been anywhere to take any decent pictures!! I had my roll over hoops wrapped black, they look absolutely great! I didn't like the JCW side stripes so they came straight off 😅 The car is now also sitting on Eibach lowering springs. it looks so so so much better now and I have noticed a positive change in the handling characteristics as well as a positive scraping noise going down the ramps in a multi-story car park.. lesson learned. This is the best/only image I have to compare the before and

  2. Also had the old girl machine polished. I’m really pleased with the results. I now know how to wash a car properly, have proper kit and am nowhere near a clay bar 👊 so hopefully she should stay nice.

  4. Happy days and blank canvas. I deffo think a subtle dechrome is in order, just a couple of bits, especially in body colour. wow with the JCW boxed kit, there can’t be many of those kicking around now that that it’s been a few year since they changed from the R55

  6. It broke free from the garage to be used as a daily for the rest of the week. A nice bit of beadage going on even after a drive to and from work in the rain all thanks to some meguiars liquid ceramic wax. I’ll update this to say how long it lasts

  12. Thank you! I know it’s a bit of a strange time at the moment. Not everyone will want to meet up with people from different areas and I totally understand that. I am sure we could all be sensible and social distance and adhere to the rules. I am just being a eager beaver, only had my mini for a couple of weeks and loving it already! 😁🙃

  13. Hi @N30VEL, welcome to FullOnMINIs, like yourself there are some absolute car/MINI nuts here, we look forward to seeing the R58, we may have to settle for pics in the short term though 😢

  14. On the Cooper S the one that really matters , I replaced the rear calliper, bled the breaks, adjusted the handbrake cable and all seems fine. rather than throw the original in the bin I thought I would rebuild it. From my investigation it looks like the source of the advisory on the MOT is self inflicted, when I originally took the car apart and painted the callipers I painted the hand brake mechanism and this has prevented movement. so I stripper it all back repainted, replaced the rubbers and piston and stored for the future if needed. The cars not likely to be moving far now

  15. Got the rear control arm bush replaced, I ended up with a new bracket and bush from BMW after destroying the original bracket when pressing the bush in. Looks much better at least, annoying noise gone of course not. Back to recruiting my wife to locate the noise she is still insisting it is the front drivers side, everything is solid, could it be the drive shaft I replaced when I got the car, it is only when turning left I don’t think so. Last chance saloon for me top mount bearings. So I buy a pair of new ones, strip it down, remove a rusty item replace with new apply lots of grease and

  18. As some of you may or may not know I've recently sold my daily driver - the R56 Cooper SD. I was given the opportunity to buy my Grandparents' R55 Cooper S for a very reasonable price so... here it is! It's a 2008 MINI Clubman Cooper S with 36k on the clock. Yes... 36k! The car has been in the family since it was new so I know the full history of the car and any work it has had done. I've always had my eye on it if I'm honest so I've been waiting for the right time to pounce. I won't be going mod crazy with this one! Just

  20. Hope you lot are doing well. My Apologies on the lack of updates and things reference the club. Theres very little I can do to protect us all as a group so at the moment shows, meets and runs are a little thin on the ground. I think everyone is doing a stella job at keeping motivated, mods and cleaning, keep at it!

  22. Prep time has started! Gave Frank a good clean yesterday, love how the brown wheels turn white. Where I do have days that I wonder why i have white wheels, yesterday I thought YES i love these white wheels. Im pretty sure I will change my mind again ha ha Thanks to @Lohen for supplying a new ITG Air Filter specifically made for the stage 1 airbox. Was super impressed with the next day delivery! So the current air filter that was in there must have been 5+ years old without looking back through this entire build thread, but the foam had started to deteriorate and I really didn't wan

  25. It's brilliant. The equaliser on my phone has since been fiddled with so the sound over Bluetooth is even clearer than it was previous. It's such a good laugh!

  27. Cheers buddy. Glad to be part of the black wing gang ☺️ Theres handles and fuel filler cap yet, but, something else has come up which has me torn between JCW or JCW+. I’ll leave that thought here 😆

  29. Updated my front and rear MINI wings. They were starting to get a little tired and always liked the black style that Littleredhead had bought for hers. it’s took a little getting used too, especially on the rear.

  33. Been a bit quite since pretty much a month ago, but here's what I was waiting for 😋 The Mini went into Bass Mechanix to have a full speaker upgrade and boot build completed. All in all it took 5 days and that was with some unforseen circumstances to make it more challenging for Monty and this team but they came through regardless. Spec list is as follows; • Rockford Stage 3 slim 10" woofer • Rockford 4 channel amplifier • Rockford PUNCH front components with tweeters • Sound deadening As you might be able to imagine the sound quality is

  37. I’ve de-badged to car to do a proper job of the paint prep. I just can’t decide which MINI logo to use on the bonnet. Does anyone know if F56 emblems fit the R56 ?
