    This looks great with the wheel arches painted!

    Great pics also, who took them Mike?

    Re: Some photo's of my Mini

    Great pictures and very nice car, but because of the light I don't appreciate that much the colour and the looks now with the painted parts.

    Re: Some photo's of my Mini

    Cant really see the difference in colour but uts really a good looking car

    Heres some pics of my hatch...bad quality though

    Nice blue for the Elise S1 bazza - do you still have your 996 C4S?

    Re: Some photo's of my Mini

    Looks great!

    It is one hell of a car. BTW notice the headlights? Look almost identical to the Porsche lights though the Mini had them earlier.

    Re: Some photo's of my Mini

    Very artistic shots .

    Thanks, what is nice about the Mini is I just simply enjoy the drive and I can take it out anywhere without having to worry. With the Lambo etc. I only take it out on weekends for traffic reasons and have a limited amount of places to go (parking, ground clearance and security).

    Re: Some photo's of my Mini

    Ahh yes, that's a nice Exige! I got mine last year August when the S was just release, I think I got the 4th one in the country. Didn't know they would bring out a special edition one so quickly there after!

    Re: Some photo's of my Mini

    Nice job Mike but I prefer mine the way it is. I like the contrast especially the body colour roof against the sunroof. What colour did you do the mirrors?

    BTW - reeaally like your wheels.

    Hi John,

    I would have left mine the way it is if the plastic hadn't started to fade. The car is now 4 years going onto 5 and the black plastic was turning into a dark gray. The only way to remedy this problem along with the hassles that came with when polishing was to paint them. My mirrors are black btw

    Re: Some photo's of my Mini

    The wheels on the mini are top notch!

    Re: Some photo's of my Mini

    Those modifications are quite tempting on a Mini Cooper. A while back Hadi Teherani (German architect) modified his Mini Cooper S, painting those plastic panels on the out-, clothing the plastic planels on the inside in leather hide and removing the tach on the steering column.

    Re: Some photo's of my Mini

    WoW Mike amazing pics, I am starting to think you are the next Steve R in the forum!!!

    After being out the whole summer, I forgot how it feels to drive our babies, they are such a special machine

    By the way, did you repaired your electrical problem with the light adjustments (I think it was something related to that right? )

    Anyway, I love your CS(not Challenge Stradale) but Cooper S
