Looks better IMO Ian.... I tried a proper beltline kit front eBay but it didn't flex or look 'right'.


I then tried cheapo electrian tape and it worked / looked better. (This was on my R56).


I will try this electrian tape on my new MINI very soon.

This is the satin finish and I don't think it looks quite right, I think I'll order some gloss tape soon.


Really want the headlights and tail lights to match now though

A couple of changes of late,

All the screws holding the media screen and speedo just fell out and this happened

And when I put it back together the speedo lit up a different colour e44aef031119b0889fdc4824af01dcae.jpg2016082 ... 01dcae.jpg"><a href=http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160826/e44aef031119b0889fdc4824af01dcae.jpg' alt='URL>'>

I dunno how that happened.


And then these little bad boys arrived

Well, you know someone was selling a set of JCW recaro's, well erm, I bought them. Unlike me I couldn't just buy them, Marc needed a set of seats part ex so last night was a night for swapping seats. Now I am one happy bunny, these seats are sooooo supportive

Time for the pictures ef01eb605eac95718ade8110cd1aa585.jpg2016090 ... 1aa585.jpg"><a href=http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160909/ef01eb605eac95718ade8110cd1aa585.jpg' alt='URL>'>

They've added 100bhp don't you know

Absolutely loving them. Going to try them in the lower settings to see how I get on. I'm just busy trying to code out the occupancy sensor. I know I could send it to the dealer but I want to learn how to do it as there are other things I'd like to look at (if you know what I mean)

A couple of updates of late, nothing like the seats update but progress all the same.

The Mini Door flood lights are in and look fab (thanks [usermention=107]@marcy[/usermention] ) for those

I found a bargain set of rear sun blinds that take away the glare from the headlights of the car behind. They also make the windows more tinted stopping people seeing in so easily without stopping you seeing out. Due to the makeup of the blinds and the window trim the blinds spring tight up to the window. I'll try and get some photos in daylight.


but someone is going to have to stop my ebay access, another parcel has arrived, I'm not sure if this part will get used but it was a bargain so I'm happy to sit on it just incase.

I know this update is a little late but I needed to wash the car before the obligatory photos were posted and due to the dark nights, long hours, this has been a week or two.


Anyway.....
