Hi guys. Finally got my car dechromed and thought I’d show it off. I’m really pleased with it.

Looks great @Kai2k, coming along really nicely!

 

Because you've started a build thread does that mean there are more mods incoming? 👀

Ha ha maybe @LewisE. We will see :-)  I really should have put a thread on here at the beginning, since I’ve done a few odds and ends. Might even retrospectively add what I’ve done like the LEDs and so on. We will see.

I recently did a full brake job on the car. EBC dimpled and grooved discs. EBC green stuff pads. MOTUL RBF 660 fluid. Abs system bled. New bleed screws all round plus one new disc retaining screw. New front wear sensor. Very impressed with the results.

Fancy a set of those rear discs 

@Mr Watton obviously they don’t stay black for long on the braking surface. What is good however is the non braking surface black finish is expected to last 5 years. Means no rusty looking hubs. I’m pleased with the discs.

I’ve also recently done a full LED interior bulb install which I am very pleased with indeed.

Another tiny mod was the ‘S’ badge on the grill, which I think adds a little colour to the front.

Last one for today is my LED side lights and number plate lights. Matches the factory LED rears and front Xenons nicely.

Thought I’d add this little nugget in. so I guess not strictly a mod but I was really pleased with the outcome. I wanted a dash cam to look as subtle as possible so as not to spoil the MINIs great interior. With a hard wire kit which requires no splicing I was super happy with the result. It has literally been fit and forget.
