If you know my address its a fitting name for my car really with how black it is. I bought the car as a standard JCW 210 with the sparco JCW seats, areo kit and Chili pack in april 2005 when it was 6 months old.

I promised myself I wasnt going to mod this one after doing quite a lot of tweeks to my previous 2003 cooper.

The Promise I made to myself didnt last long and a couple of weeks later the car had had a full stereo system put in, the 18" breyton magics off my Cooper fitted an had been lowered on KW springs.

The car has moved on abit since then and in January 2008 the car was the first non tuner car in the UK to break through the 270bhp barrier still using the M45 supercharger.

Loui, looks great mate. :)

One question, are the door handles painted?

Ive got a local place to me who is willing to remove, paint and re-fit them for £85, which is a total bargain. However, they are saying because the handles are chrome the paint may not hold and they wont be able to guarantee the work. :(

If yours are painted..... how are they holding up? :)

Hi James,
yeah the handles are painted, they have lasted about a year,I've recently had a few small patches where it's flaked, mainly on the curves that have needed touching up, tbh when I've got the money will probably get some carbon ones, but tbh I had them sprayed for about 20quid so cam really complain

What he ^^ said.
Your brembo for pots are the JCW ones, or others?
Thanks!
The brake kit is a custom one, was done when there weren't many kits for the mini about four years ago. The calipers are from a seat leon cupra r
