    Whoopie! Project R53

    Hiya guys,
    after I finished the last project (#9):



    I went "back" to the R53.
    I was looking for a good, fair and standard Mini cooper S R53.
    After a few days I found some dealer who really wanted to buy my R56s and had a 1st owner R53 in the showroom.. he made me an offer I couldn't refuse so things went pretty fast.

    I am still waiting for some parts to come in but I have started slowly with modding.

    This is how it looked when bought.




    I must say I was not very happy with the white roof but I will change this in time..

    The Sspokes went to the R56 and I have now these temporarly BBS RD wheels





    Then I took of the rear wiper, logo's and a smaller Alta antenna




    Also the white bonnet stripes had to go



    Just had a small mod done to the airbox... for more cool air + little more SC noise..ehm music



    I will keep you guys in the loop about the mods being done.

    I hope to have my new camber plates in tomorrow so I can fit my coilovers this friday so I can fit My vsxx ezfida's

    Obvious things that are being modded are:
    exhaust,
    brakes,
    bumpers + skirts,
    spoiler,
    splitter,
    pully,
    TMIC,
    etc

    I hope I can mod this more slowly then the previous cars so I can enjoy it more!

    Will keep you posted.

    Cheers and thanks for looking!

    Coen

    Will be good to see what you do, judging by the others you've done

    Looks like a good base, looking forward to where it goes.....

    Reason for not getting another R56 / why did you get rid of the R56 ?

    A few guys were having serious problems with their engines... and I don't mind putting a lot of money in a car but not just to keep it on the road...

    The R53 has proved time after time that the engine is strong.. so I want back to that... I hope the future will bring me, "stronger, better, faster" then my previous cars

    Uh oh, your about to show me how dark silver should be done properly then

    Looks tidy, I really love the DS/white roof combo, even contemplated doing my roof and caps so I can pull off white wheels
