  4. Well it was less what we did, and more what we undid. New plans on the way.
  5. Looks good, was it a replacement piece or a cover that snaps over
  6. Also as DINA has a partnership with BMW their parts do not void your warranty.
  7. Looking good, looking forward to your progress.
  8. Craven Speed has quality products, and has also supported MINIs Take the Beltway with prizes for many years.
  9. If you were moving, they will likely attribute it is a rock hitting it making it a comprehensive claim on our insurance like @TGGRRR (Ali) said. I have seen this more than you would think on other forums recently. At least you got away with only a few cuts, and didn't result in a bigger accident.
  10. i will push it on social media again this evening
  11. Your all good, he’ll MINI selling the aero and interior packages as options separate from the JCW performance parts. Dealers add it on all the time, I call it the “show no go” package. As long as you don’t slap the badge on it, no one will think twice.
  12. I take the method of cross my toes, the grip it and rip it. LOL
  13. here is a video to remove the whole grille, you can see the center clips in the video. Looks like you need to remove the grille to access clips. Seems easy to remove to ensure you don’t brake clips.
  14. Especially when it includes track time on a well know road course
  15. Good idea, members of the club really enjoy following them. I look forward to following. Just don’t be like me a get focused on the project and forget to get updates. Lol
  16. I was about to ask the same thing. I notice Al for C3M was at it last year in the pictures.

  19. Hitting the road at 0 dark thirty, should be in Fontana around 2ish. One more hour of work lets go already
  20. Early gen2 before the bugs where smoothed out, so check it over well for electrical gremlins. As the the N14 motor it has the usual suspects that should have been replaced (as for documentation or account for replacing): thermostat, water pump, oil housing gasket, timing chain and tensioner. Those are the big ticket items, but check for other oil leaks at the inner for example. A history of oil changes is good, the n14 is thirsty and people run them low which wears rings and other internals. If you can gt a compression test it is a good idea, might give you a preview of possible worn rings or failing head gasket.
  21. Do I need to set aside a day in the near future or are you old hat at this now.
  22. Deciding what beer to bring to the brew swap, thinking Natty Bo. I can describe it as the oldest craft brewer In Baltimore.
  23. I really need to set aside some time to plan and pack. I have had none, every time I think I can something comes up (work, job interviews, etc...) his getting out of the military is way to much work.
