As some of you may know I have had a bit of an issue trying to get videos to play on my media pack ! Made more irritating when other members could do it and I couldn't :boredam:


Anyway, after many emails backwards and forwards between the dealer and mini UK, I have managed to do it :good: and you know it was people in this club that were the most help (thank you)

I guess by know, your wondering what I discovered !

Genuine cables are crap !

Minis don't like modern tech !


I found (with @marcy 's help) a (possibly Chinese) knock off cable that connects to an iPhone 4 type connector and plays video from an iPhone 4s and iPod Gen 3. I'm sure more will work but that's all the devises I have for the minute.

If anyone else wants to find a cable its part number appears to be 2 179 623-01

I'll consider myself told off, in all seriousness I do need to update this even with the little things I've done. I've just this second got back from Edinburgh and Dundee so one of the first jobs tomorrow is to get this sorted. Sorry peeps, especially all of those who have helped with advice etc

Just re-read this thread and I have realised I have missed so much. The upper and lower grille surrounds have been changed to black, the wing mirror covers have changed to black ...... And the one you have all been saying in your head ..... When is he going to mention the suspension ?

Well..... After boring you all to death with many questions, backwards and forwards to different websites and constantly changing my mind, I eventually decided on some ST XTA's primarily because they are so closely connected with KW and had similar spec to Meisterr. I couldn't get a definitive answer if I would need spacers or not as everyone said "it depends how low you go !" Which didn't help ! I was only really left with one answer to make sure I could suspension straight away. I didn't want to test fit and find that I had clearance issues do so I bought spacers straight away, I thought I'd hedge my bets and get a 10mm spacer for every corner.

The overall set up is pretty much how I wanted the car to look.

A huge thanks to all that humoured me with all my questions before and after fitting ! And thanks to Simon who helped by polishing my cars exhaust ! Lol (I had to be careful how I phrased that Lol)

Anyway the proof (the photos)

Well, I've been having a play recently. I bought myself a replacement set of exhaust tips and started cutting them up. Ended up making something similar to the JCW exhaust tips.

I can't decide on if I like the or not because I think they stick out too far ! Please let me know your thoughts 148aafc1f825ec1456fefc9c2cb35095.jpg2016040 ... b35095.jpg"><a href=http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160402/148aafc1f825ec1456fefc9c2cb35095.jpg' alt='URL>'>60c79a37be2d7c66c16ff6d3fc52524c.jpg2016040 ... 52524c.jpg"><a href=http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160402/60c79a37be2d7c66c16ff6d3fc52524c.jpg' alt='URL>'>8b6935e058f4ef760255a3b7fbe1bbd8.jpg2016040 ... e1bbd8.jpg"><a href=http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160402/8b6935e058f4ef760255a3b7fbe1bbd8.jpg' alt='URL>'>39a28f9b6a95f858ff26402b4679a3ee.jpg2016040 ... 79a3ee.jpg"><a href=http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160402/39a28f9b6a95f858ff26402b4679a3ee.jpg' alt='URL>'>5aa005d73419be6367a6ae93bd496eb4.jpg2016040 ... 496eb4.jpg"><a href=http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160402/5aa005d73419be6367a6ae93bd496eb4.jpg' alt='URL>'>5e5ef3507781b2525f29ec18f4b1938d.jpg2016040 ... b1938d.jpg"><a href=http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160402/5e5ef3507781b2525f29ec18f4b1938d.jpg' alt='URL>'>

I love these, but would they not push up the pipe a little further so it's a tad more flush?
