Well, got her back from the repair centre, and looking better than when I bought her! We were a bit concerned they wouldn't replace the bonnet stripes we fitted but they did.......and got a vinyl company to come out to centre to fit them! Have to say the paintwork is spot on, perfect match and perfect finish (unlike those feckers that repaired Roxy!).

 

So, got to work on her and finally fitted the spare wheel kit I bought ages ago. Was a bit of a faff but got there in the end. Least now I won't be stranded with a flat tyre!

Thought I'd put up some pics of her now she's looking spot on! Shows the new spare wheel kit all fitted up and also the other mod I done recently.........rare Aero rear spoiler. Was gonna get a Cooper S spoiler but this came up for grabs so went for it.

Lots of cars I consider to look gay including some Honda's (crz, insight) but imo the mini is just a good modern take on a classic. Least it's not a ruddy fiat panda or peaugot, both of which are fuggly!

 

She deffo looks a lot better mate, not even a stone chip on her (wonder how long that will last!!!) so we'll happy

Finally got new tyres for the rims today.......And got them fitted!

Had her out for a blast to bed them in and had a mix of dry roads and wet (bloody rain!) Grip was superb, and ride not as hard as I thought it would be going from 15's to 17's. Got her back and all cleaned, tyres dressed etc (they're not done in the pics) anyways, the pics of how she looks now....

Cheers chaps! Yeah think the wheels have beefed up the look big time.

Also got a Alpine/Pure DAB/USB kit to fit to it. Means taking apart the whole dash and a load of new looms but will be worth it. Going to upgrade all the speakers too. She's a cracking wee daily!
