This picture was taken when I had 5mm spacers on it. Looks even better since I got the 15mm spacers on.

Love the classic BRG/White. I think the aero grill would look good.

thanks, i was holding off on it just because i thought i was one piece and i couldnt easily do the grill surround in a different color, now i think im going to do just what rjtrout200 did just in a purer shade of white

R50 in Michigan

Got this car a few weeks ago. Getting is sorted out and loving it so far.
This is a rather average cell phone shot. Hope to get a shoot done after next washing in the snow some place.

this is our new baby! i already had a daily driver (my 4runner), but with my girlfriend starting at a school 45 miles from home, we needed a vehicle that she'd be comfortable driving, and one in which i'd know she was safe. (also, something fun to drive!)

growing up, we always had BMWs in the family. my dad owned a '72 2002 tii which he kept in pristine condition, they had various other newer ones, and my first car ever was a '91 BMW 325 ix (4 wheel drive for where we lived at the time).

soooo ... when it came time to look into getting a new car, there was a bit of an extra pull toward Mini ... in part because my dad always talked about wanting one for fun one day. i imagine him smiling every time we take her out!



attaching two pics - one is of our new Mini, and the other is a picture of our new Mini with my 4Runner. as you can see, the Mini fits perfectly in our family. hehe.
