Hey Everyone, New Mini Owner from Houston

Hey Members,

Just wanted to take the opportunity to introduce my self to the board. Ive been on here for a while to educate my self on the car and the brand. This will be my 3rd different kind of sports car and hope to keep it for a long time. I wish to learn more from you guys and meet the owners. Now to the car, its a 6-Speed 2004 Grey Mini Cooper S R53, with white stripes. Its my first Mini, and so far the car has been a blast to drive. I will probably make modifications once i get use to the car. Rite now I am having to much fun and just afraid that itll get me into trouble lol

Looking good... more pictures... nice weather down there, too! Welcome to Mini. Don't know if there's any rational car out there that beats these for driving fun. Definitely special!

Welcome, first thing I would try is to bring back the headlight a bit, seem like the MINI headlight down south after a while get the UV punishment and turn a little yellow.


This helps them.

Premium Headlight Lens Restoration Kit from OSRAM / Sylvania

Or Depo if you want something different.

Getting those lenses cleaned off and polished will help nighttime driving a noticeable amount. Those products will clear them up like new and help protect them as well.
