09 PepperWhite Toy or DD?

We purchased a used 2009 MCS primarily as a daily driver. But I think with the way I tinker with everything there will be a few changes and additions

I did not want to start a "Welcome hi how do you do" thread when I can jump right in with what will be my ongoing thread about our MINI.

So Howdy to everyone.

At the starting line it is a basic 2009 with only factory options. There was 84k miles from the previous owner but all the recalls and even the timing chain and components were changed not long ago. We are the second owners but happy to find a MINI the the original owner was into preventive maintenance.

I have no specific plans except that I will not be getting carried away with much. Maybe mostly in the comfort and personal changes that will make this MINI uniquely ours.

The first order of business is to get a few trinkets.
Ordered are as follows:
RED and Silver Key fob ring
Dash cover
Leather steering wheel cover
Chrome Door lock pins
Fake carbon fiber licence plate frame
Union Jack Wing Emblem Rings Door Lock
Short Stuby Antenna
Ultra Gauge
Custom wheels



That's it for now.

Thank you for the welcome.



I received my Ultra Gauge today and did not like the suction cup to windshield mounting so I am going to make my own mount..

I use an Ultra Gauge in another vehicle and really like the gauge monitoring choices to view and the code reading and clearing capability. Very easy plug-n-play and set up.
