History I ordered my MINI with only one package. I thought the cold weather package was a must. All other options we ordered ala cart. My intention was to track this car so I only bought what I felt enhanced its performance.

After waiting 6 weeks my MINI came in with the wrong dash finish. I refused delivery & waited another 6 long weeks. My MINI was delivered to me on December 13 2005.

Here's what I got...
Xenon lights.
Fogs front & rear.
LSD.
CWP, cold weather package.
MFW, multi function wheel.
Yep that is it... :-)

Impressive!
Very nice car.
More pics please!

I have theory about blue MINIs. They let Chili Red think they are the fastest, but the blue MINIs are really the family speed machines.
This is from personal observation over 3 MOTD events.
Red MINIs sneak up on me from time to time up there, but it's the blue ones that I am always pulling over to let by.
