    Update time Been doing some bits to the mini this week. Got the jcw top grille and the jcw grilles that go in place of the fogs for my birthday. Whilst i had the bumper off decided to just start de chroming aswell. So colour coded the light surrounds and done the grille surround in black. Wanted to do some sort of front spliitter at some point but with the duell ag one being pretty pricey decided to buy the jcw pro ones. So thats the front end sorted i think. With removing the fogs i have a fog warning light now though so going into mini to see if they can code it out. Rear wiper delete ordered so that should be here soon.

    New F56 Fuel Gauge

    That looks much better, wonder if it would be a straight swap with the older one? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks ian yeah its cool to have a part from my first car still in use. Its a great car Simon. Done around 2k miles in it so far definatly a good all round car. Would be nice to have a cooper s or jcw but that will have to wait till i can insure them. Need to get to a mini meet/event sometime Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Small update time MINI stubby ariel fitted https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170722/9dc904c8531c70dc680ab58d12b7fbef.jpg' alt='URL>'> Got jcw rubber mats due to getting in my car dusty from work everyday and the carpet ones would end up ruined. Next i remembered i still had the jcw carbon gear knob from my old r56 so decided to see if it would fit. Fits fine but i had to do something about a gear gaiter so got my mum to help make one from some cheap alcantara i had laying around. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170722/b8e224d4feb4ca99f0a35032efac0c1b.jpg' alt='URL>'> https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170722/f00af1199c184e6481ed2e240307fd7e.jpg' alt='URL>'>https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170722/cf992603b38d5db29ff8fb7c52d2a124.jpg' alt='URL>'> My favourite thing so far. I want more noise from the car as i miss that from my previous mini. So made a intake using aother factory airbox i bought and a k&n cone filter. A few f56 owners have done this so far and its a cheap way of getting the sound without spending hundreds on a induction kit. The noise is addicting [emoji23] https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170722/9618633c4e9e4aae56c8bcab82d12456.jpg' alt='URL>'> ">http://https://youtu.be/GTQCoHmp0mk Hope that link works as i put a video up of the sound on you tube Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Not a mods update but went up to hartside for a local meet. Was good fun and the mini handles well round the twisty roads. Was following some faster cars and got to the bottom and my front brakes were somking heavily[emoji91][emoji23]. Cant see it too much in the picture. The pedal was going pretty long by the time we got to the bottom. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170610/eebbede0be73fbe454f4e98309af10dd.jpg' alt='URL>'> Didnt plan on doing any brake upgrades but think its needed. Think i will go with better pads and see how they hold up as i dont have the money for a bbk or jcw brakes at the moment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Gave the car its first clean as told the dealers not too wash it. Got a bit of protection down so should stay nice for a little while. Think the front end needs a few jcw parts to improve it and some lows Love this colour [emoji7] https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170521/7f9aa6ea7bb2dd0b7a23846b4b87319b.jpg' alt='URL>'> https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170521/2e7cc1011cb186cf9251726fe2a3a4a5.jpg' alt='URL>'> https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170521/5377f107f12a3743d2fb086a42a718a5.jpg' alt='URL>'>https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170521/6bc104dca096fd3497de83a60f15e58e.jpg' alt='URL>'> Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. So im back in a MINI! Had a right pain with insurance and a few factors causing it to increase so my BMW is for sale and ive went and ordered a new f56 cooper[emoji51] Would have liked a jcw or cooper s but too expensive to insure at the moment. Some may remember my first car/mini which i had a year then bought the BMW. Heres the mini. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170505/746f500a26fcf30daae505922973375b.jpg' alt='URL>'> Next was the F30 which i bagged and planned to keep for longer. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170505/186b8156427842b6479c5fab9a2c25ee.jpg' alt='URL>'> So decided to go for something fun again and drove my mums cooper and liked it. I should hopefully have the car by the end of May. I'll post pics and spec when i get it but breif spec is 1.5t petrol, manual, jcw body kit and two tone 18 inch wheels with chilli pack. Picked lapis luxury blue for the color as really liked it and isnt too many around yet. Was at rockingham and seen a lapis jcw so heres a few pics to show the color. Really like the new challenge f56 cars so might be abit of insipiration for mods [emoji848] https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170505/61a17e81c66898ed82b35d87ee4805ed.jpg' alt='URL>'> https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170505/8ec7845777932cfe158ac38e6860701b.jpg' alt='URL>'> Now to wait on it arriving Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My f30 320d

    So i have not updated this since i got the car. Made me laugh looking at my first post saying i dont have much planned [emoji23] The reason im back to update is it might be for sale and going back to a mini. Insurance prices are going up and my insurance has doubled. Cant justify the increase but still looking for cheaper qoutes. So i ended up putting the car on airlift perfromance air ride suspension with v2 management. Its the first and only f30 on air in the uk so pretty unique! Had a local joiner make the boot build. There isnt much clearance on the front so fitted 13mm spacers to clear the bags. Also got some carbon m3 style mirror caps which i think helped with making the front end more aggressive. I fitted a qaud exit diffuser so i could get a qaud system made but havnt had that done. Latest mod is a carbon v style spoiler to replace my m performance one. Not sure what will be happening as i had more plans but if i get another mini will make a build thread https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170401/db9e0a8375640c96c5cc60a3e6b7d1e2.jpg' alt='URL>'>https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170401/3c717e9b1e9e1581e28166e855eade56.jpg' alt='URL>'>https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170401/f3573963fd9c2f10538491ad742f871f.jpg' alt='URL>'>https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170401/8e47b8b6028c2a0e901d7dbe7a69d18d.jpg' alt='URL>'>https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170401/f67d926a4a51edb7d4591172df5a2595.jpg' alt='URL>'>https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170401/8cce915ab70a4a4c86a802cb3802a5d1.jpg' alt='URL>'>https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170401/504177f4837fd7c4f77446f0731a0824.jpg' alt='URL>'>https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170401/063f9fb27cdec85b5881b973a30e63b9.jpg' alt='URL>'>https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170401/c6a0ef00948f1b16b37e4435e0104302.jpg' alt='URL>'> Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
