  1. very easy on gen 1 and 2. I haven't looked on gen 3 yet, but is likely just as easy
  2. We hit the road for the dragon, and in typical Roxy tradition, she tried to sabotage the trip. Two years ago it was blow a tire and tweak a rim three days before leaving. Yesterday was the battery finally giving out. So a 8am made dash to the parts store for a new one. Quick switch, as long as you know how to get the battery out. fired right up, checked the charging system to make sure and all was good. dragon here we come!!!
  3. Looks good, what brand / bulbs did you use?

  8. The short answer is it depends, does your MINI currently have halogen or xenon headlights. If your are asking about changing the headlight assembly to go from a chrome to a black body that is pretty straight forward. If you are talking about switch to a better blub but in the same type (halogen or xenon) this again is pretty straight forward. Lastly if you are looking to upgrade from halogen to xenon this is a bit more effort, but there are kit available the key is you get what you pay for on these kits. If you can clarify the path you are going down we would be happy to go into a bit m
  9. I agree, you can get way better performance at the same price point out of non-runflats. I made the change a few years back. switch to Michelin PS 3+ and have never been happier.
  10. @twakefieldhas it right there is not a lot out on the gen3 for mod tutorials. I did lowering springs on the wife’s countryman (1st gen) and it was all straight forward. Those front end have very little load when the assembly is off the car so you could just have a buddy lean on the top hat and get the pressure off the nut. Not sure the load on a the 3D gen, but you can also pull them then take the assembly with the new springs and have them swap it in. You then do the reinstall. as for alignment. The biggest thing you are going to change is camber, you will need an alignment or new t
  11. We will be there, a lot of the regulars and run leaders are there. I know a lot of the run are still going. Should be a lot of fun. We will be in Cabin 628 if you see us enjoying a beverage on the porch in the evening don't hesitate to stop.
  12. All, the lunch is a pack your own (damn covid) the lunch break will be at a park pavilion in sterling. The exact location will be in your packets at the start.
