Post Pictures of Your R57 Convertible

I'll get the ball rolling here.

My customer's car that was delivered last week. Mach V installed the Rota's and the Cross Coilover suspension. Looks sweet if you ask me.

Is it just me or does the convertible S not have the same gas door as the regular MINI S. That seems wrong, the regular gas door just seems boring.

Your right, it doesn't. It's becuase the components for the convertible roof take up a lot of space, there isn't the room for that hardtop gas door that you're speaking of.

I do prefer the hardtop gas door over the regular look one on the R57 convertible.

The thrill won't go away.
I put 4 hours on the Openometer in spite of the fact that it rained all week.

Dice get hung when I go to Yankees games. Which tends to be often -- Lizzie has made 2 trips to The Stadium already.

Has anyone had this happen? After driving, apparently brake dust(?) gets on the black wheel opening trim. If I am not careful and brush up against the trim I get black on my trouser leg. When we get back from a drive, I can take a white cloth and wipe off the trim and get lots of black dust. Since my trim is black I can't see the dust.

Awesome pics, Screamer!

It looks like I'm going to have to get out my camera and take some fancy pics of Ronin.
