    Wonder who's is later. Mine has a 10/06 build date and when I check the VIN on the BMW VIN Decoder I get the actual build date of 11/27/06.

    What did you get rid off or is this the Winter beater so can put the GP2 away?

    FYI you got the Best MINI in the best color this time! :Thumbsup:

    Updated photos 18 May 2014 @ 21,000 miles

    Set of new BBS R90's went on today. Added JCW CF mirror caps & shifter recently. No other mods planned for now, just going to enjoy it like this for a while.

    It took nearly a year, but finally found a R53 JCW rear wing (Thanks Evan). With a little help from Chad @ Detroit Tuned and Cavallo's (local body shop) the deed is now done.
