  1. I'm interested and would also need a loaner helmet.
  2. Bummed to not be able to support this one after conversation on the other thread, but a work-conflict has popped up for that week. Hope the HH goes well, though!
  3. I'm sure you've seen this: Neuspeed has the RSe05 listed as compatible with the JCW brakes. Performance Alloys lists a few 17" available, and they keep some of their stock is in the US. But also, some folks on NAM have said that many of those wheels listed as compatible... aren't. I do recall seeing a JCW F54 on NAM with 17" BBS SR fitted.
  4. It's certainly possible. Would depend on typical life things we all deal with... like how things go at work that day, etc. But yes, I would try to make it. I'll try to keep a closer eye on the calendar and see what/when pops up.
  5. Sorry, just saw this. But @Egadd... yes, I'd attend a happy hour in/around DC if you do one day host one. But as you have seen... not many others seem to work in the downtown-ish area or have desire/time to drive in. I setup a HH a few years ago at Pentagon City and it was a bust.
  6. Verdict: success and recommended. Definitely doesn't show any smudges or fingerprints. If you've used these types of "paper feel" add-ons then you know it feels slightly different to touch and swipe. Adaptation takes about 0.87 seconds. I did notice some muted glare after a day or two. I couldn't remember if the un-covered screen had glare like that, or if I was just being hyper-sensitive because of the change. Well, it was the latter. I took the screen protector off and it was crazy how much more I noticed the glare on the uncovered screen. Back on with the matte screen!
  7. I used screen cleaner... I think it was marketed as computer screen, but I believe all the hand held screen device stuff is roughly the same.
  8. No more nav screen smudges... Trimmed down an iPad "paperlike" matte screen protector to put on the MINI's screen. Not a perfect first attempt, as you can see in the pic, but will use this one for awhile to see how it works out before I cut another. The before: The after (and having touched all over the screen): (I was holding a bright LED toward it... besides lack of smudges, I think I may have less glare when driving. Time will tell.) When on: The supplies:
  9. I'll pile on... another NV Coatings fan. Plus I am mildly ashamed to admit that the road rash was a bit more than what I would call mild on one wheel. But you can't tell now...
  10. Like I said above... I'm flexible and just ask that a person DMs a reasonable offer. I have no set number in my head. A low-ball offer with something like $10 is not reasonable... and of course, neither is $1000. There are plenty of market places for MINI parts to get a rough idea... but of course selling on those sites means more effort and/or costs to the seller. Seems logical to me that selling in the DMV to a fellow club member is good for both seller and buyer...
  11. Replaced my steering wheel a few months ago... pretty sure I'm not going to need this anymore. Make a reasonable offer and it's yours. JCW factory steering wheel, with paddle shifters. NO WIRING HARNESS (I moved it to the new steering wheel) NOR TRIM PIECES. I'm gonna presume that if you're thinking of buying this, then you have an F-series with auto and paddles, but not the JCW-trim steering wheel. So if that's the case, you'll just need to do the simple swap of your existing harness into this steering wheel. Easy, peasy, 10 min job, not counting the fiddly process of removing your airbag... Original car was F54 JCW.
  12. Welcome to the area! It does have a lot to offer... GREAT looking MINI with some very nice mods. Looking forward to meeting you...
