Meanest looking Cooper? Pics please

I've always love the Mini with body kits, fender flares and wide wheels. Dark tinted windows have got to make the MCS look so mean.

Anyone got some pics to share?

And yet they don't.

You would have better luck getting pics of mean looking kittens.

Just like a snub nose 38. Or a pit bull puppy. Or a poison dart frog. Or jailbait.

I'm a member of the "cute, but lethal" club. But there definitely ARE some mean looking MINIs.

I think it's easier since the R56S comes with the black honeycomb grill. My idea of a nice aggressive MINI:

Laser Blue/Black, no stripes
Black out the chrome all the way around
Joey mod headlamps
JCW aero front and side skirts, leave stock back
17" OZ Ultraleggeras, or 17" R99s powder coated black
Take out some of the wheel gap with new springs
Lowest possible tint per your state laws

It exists only in my mind at the moment... I need a better job.

Agreed. The R56 MCS looks more mean right from the start, with the slightly beefier front end and black grill.

Hrer's what a new grill (and stripes) can do. Not "mean" but getting there.

I've seen MINIs that look meaner than other MINIs, but never a MINI that looked outright mean.

"Cute" is, honestly, one of the first descriptors out of my mouth when I'm talking about the MINI. Does that make me a bad person?

A good point about the lethality (holy crap...that's actually a word!).

I like mean looking cute things. Like beautiful, dangerous women.
