Especially not until it's lowered.

I would be interested to see what you are making the sides from. I didn't realise that the sides where made from aluminium and carbon structure, I know that due to the forces applied that plastic and GRP is not up to the job and I have had to have them made from an alloy too.

How are you funding this dream?

Surely it would have been cheaper to sell and buy a Cooper S to play with?

i think mikey is talking about getting one of Richards ones for his car,

modding minis isnt about logic and making money sense, i have no plans of up grading to a cooper S but sticking an S engine in my coop, cheaper road tax and insurance so it will pay for its self in a year

for a lot of us on here our minis are not our daily drivers so we dont mind spending too much money on silly things as there projects for us, i know myself, RKDE, mikey and a good few others fall into this catagory

Fair point!

I'm actually running 3 cars at the moment but I like the cushy warranty life too much!

its horses for courses, my mini will be pulled apart a lot over the years as i like to fiddle and meddle and do stuff up, looking at getting a cayman S or a rangie as my daily next year when im done at uni as they dont really need modded but i will work on all my own cars as much as i can, i used to be a warranty lover but then i relazied its not scray to do your own work

why would it be cheaper insurance? And how much cheaper? As surely its still a cooper s once the engine is in
