History Picked up brand new from the dealership, traded over from a dealership out of Ohio. I traded in my 2008 MINI Cooper Clubman, named P1pboy for this Turbo charged bundle of awesome.
Exterior
2012 MINI Cooper S Exterior
Less than 16 hours after picking up at the dealership, Nelzie was at Detroit Tuned, being converted into his current hotness.

3M 3D "Carbon Fiber" vinyl was applied to black out the chrome belt line, the head and tail light rings, the grill rings and the left and right front fenders. Then a Stubby Antenna was installed.

About 1 week later, the new black wheels arrived, a few days after that, the grill badge and Nelzie's look has been the same since.

Suspension
At the beginning of last year's autocross season, I installed an Hotchkiss 3 position rear sway bar. This turned out to be an even better performance modification than obtaining better tires and getting a good alignment.

Just dropped Nelzie by 1.2" with the installation of NM Engineering, RS Alpha Spring Kit.

The new Ride Height is fantastic.
