  5. My R50 Adventure

    The Projects
    After loving MINIs for years, I was lucky enough to get a facelift Pure Silver 2005 R50 One 2 years ago for my 17th birthday. I never intended to modify the car at all, I wanted the car to look like it came out the factory. I slowly started changing my mind, changing a few little things like...

  7. All I wanted Were S Spokes & A Burger King.

    The Projects
    This project was meant to be different from my half arsed attempts in the past. The saxo's and the r5gtt's that went before it always ran out of money and were sold on before I had a chance to finish them. I've almost hit a wall with this one already but the mods will continue coming as long as...

    MINI Chat
    Hi Guys I'm new to the forum but wondered if anyone had heard of either Tapatalk or Fourm Runner mobile apps on here? Forum Surfing on your mobile eats up you Data allowances but these apps allow you to surf forums faster without doing so. I've use them for the R32OC, SeatCupra.net and...
