  1. One more spot just opened up as I have decided not to join. 37 degrees and summer tires on wet roads might not be the best choice. Have fun, see you all soon! Hurry up warm weather!
  2. I've used NV Coatings a few times myself, they are excellent to work with! Just curious, what color were your rims before, did they paint the entire rim in black inside and out, take them off the tires or leave them on, and what was the price per wheel or total? I always see wheels I Iike, but would prefer them a different color, and would consider having all 4 refinished if the price is reasonable.
  3. I would HIGHLY NOT RECOMMEND you go to the place I went to! The paint work itself was spot on, but the customer service was completely shady!!
  4. Fingers crossed for good weather! I miss driving the MINI!
  5. YES! January might make the most sense with the heavy load of the Holidays.
  6. Where will you get it tuned? Manic seems to be less and less used these days, Mario Plaza seems to be the go to. Grey Goose mentioned he got his f56 JCW tuned at GT Peace. Wonder if they tune the R model Gen2's?
  7. What's next? A tune? Downpipe? FLAMES!!!??? Curious what the initial idea was behind the FMIC upgrade? I know it helps with engine temps thus resulting in better performance on hotter days, but is there any other gain without a tune to go with it? -STEVE
  8. Hey Craig. Other than the parking lot at the meeting point, is there any other dirt/gravel roads on the route? I plan to join, but will likely be closer to the route departure time of around 10:15.
  9. Everyone be sure to bring $5 cash for the ferry ride!
  10. Any dirt or gravel roads to contend with on the route?
  11. I have the Craven Speed shift knob for my R56. It's a really nice piece, nicely constructed, well thought out and has been holding up really well. Plus, you can order more than one cap and customize it any way you want. Not sure what the material is, but no issues with cold or heat and it has a great feel in your hand.
  12. Donross. Did you get those brakes set up in time for the Dragon?
  13. 1975_mini, Thanks to your tutelage, I'm feeling confident moving forward.
  14. $700-FIRM-CASH ONLY PLEASE Like new, Megan Racing Euro II Coilovers for 07-13 MINI Cooper. Adjustable spring preload, dampening/rebound (32 settings), & ride height. Complete with spanner wrenches & dampner extensions. Driven about 4000 miles. These are in excellent shape and I really enjoyed them, however I'm planning to upgrade to something new so they need to go. They are currently on my car, but will be removed soon and will be driven very minimally until removed as my car is not a daily driver. I plan to remove them the first part of May. Message me here, or on my cell
