My new addition.

2006 Hot Orange aka "Pumpkin"

She is a little rough around the edges and requires a diaper to retain fluids

Greetings from the holyland

Hello to everyone, my name is Lior and i'm from Tel-Aviv, Israel...and also the proud owner of a 2007 MCSA (one out of 4 or 5 R52 Cooper S there are in Israel)
I bought mine about a year ago, completely stock, with just under 50,000 miles on it..

This is how it looked the first day I got it


Few months later...


And latest look dipped in Electric lime green Plastidip

Finally! First MINI, second ragtop!

Here's my week old (to me) 2008 (07/08) six speed MINI S.... Needs tons of detailing and such! Going to do the Valeo clutch kit... and a few other mods!

First washing!

Mirrors out!

New Interior

Pretty excited about the new interior on my '06 MCS. After looking for 2 years I finally came across someone parting a Sidewalk and grabbed up the malt brown bits. The transformation is huge. It brightens up the whole interior and looks great with the dark silver.

Also this spring I polished the faded/yellowed headlights and stripped, polished and clear coated the outer lip of the wheels.

Previous mods include the front grill, chrome mirror caps.

The car still needs some rock chip touch-up up front ... and a good wash, buff, and wax

Looks good...I see you put an "S" on the front like I did to my '04 R53......I need to repaint the red that was inside mine....the cheap vinyl sticker came off shortly after I installed it

Driving home after purchase.

Wheels borrowed from my "Topless" that I posted a short time ago above...

All the stickers and stripes are off.... this is another car max vehicle.... their "brand" has been burned into the rear door like mine! UGH!

Here is the newest member to our family! 06 cool blue metallic with just over 103K on the clock... The better half loved my "Topless" so much, we needed to get her one also! This is a little more base model, but upgrades are doable!

Cheers all!

Here's my 4 day old 2008 R52 Sidewalk edition.
I'll follow up after detailing it and work on the headlights. Convertible top is already acting up, but I still love it. That supercharged engine will sure get me some speeding tickets!
