  1. @Mr Watton you have been busy! Hopefully the seal that wasn't fitted properly has put your ABS problems to bed! Frank looks great with his new radiator and intercooler; you should just run him with no front bumper to show it all off I'm loving that turbo blanket, too
  2. Good night for me, it's bed time! 😴 😴
  3. Looks good @Rob findlay. I'm a big fan of the E30!
  4. @f56_dan coilovers when I eventually get round to it and work/the weather allows 😳
  5. I got around to taking a few (crap) videos of the exhaust with the Milltek Sports Cat fitted. They are only shot from my phone but give you a rough idea of what it sounds like. I think it sounds like what a N18 JCW should have sounded like from the factory. VID_93150331_232344_857.mp4 MOV_5588_000_Trim.mp4
  6. I was going to say the same as Ian and say the arm rest before I went and looked at old interior pictures! It only comes from having owned three Gen 2s and knowing how much crap can collect around (and in) that screw head! Where did you purchase the cover from? I may need a couple of them...
  7. I think I do, though it may be purely psychological. I have noticed a small MPG increase though when using it. I'm wanting to! It's going to need a new shock on the front at some point this year so I'm waiting until I replace the front shocks to do the springs. Might as well do them all at the same time eh?
  8. Cover in the bottom of the cupholder? 🤔
  9. Had our first problem last week; an unexpected diesel leak. I think I covered most of the North East in VPower before it was fixed 🤦🏻‍♂️ lucky it is cheap at the moment 😳 There was a small hole in the fuel filter causing diesel to leak out and lie in the undertray. It made the problem look a lot more severe than it was as there were drips of diesel from back to front on the right hand side of the car! Luckily all it took was a new fuel filter and the car is now leak free. Also finally got round to putting some appropriate rubber on! With me not using the car over the past two months I hadn't taken off my winter tyre setup. I've got another set of alloys for the SD but they're in need of a refurb and some new rubber. For now I've put on the original wheels from the JCW. They've got pretty healthy tyres on so figured I'd use them before going out and buying four new ones (keeps the bank balance a bit healthier, too!) I do like the look of these wheels on a Cooper S but, if I were to run them as my permanent summer wheels I'd have to change the colour from black. (yes I know the filler cap still needs to be dechromed 🙃)
  10. Congratulations, Chris! That's great news 😊
  11. Been working full time so haven't had a lot of extra time. I have been out a couple of times in the Roadster though and managed to give the SD a full clean, polish and wax before I did the dechrome. Like you @Kettlepot I've started buying powertools, mainly because there aren't any car parts I want or need at the moment! I've been doing a lot of gardening as well!
  12. Welcome @Jovan, I'm sure I recognise your Bayswater from Instagram! Welcome to FullOnMINIs
  13. Awesome stuff @f56_dan. I absolutely love the way it sits now! You're on a slippery slope buying that intake.. before you know it it'll be booked in for a remap! 😛
