    hows it going. New to the mini community. Love this car. Picked up a clean black on black 2005 MCW JCW with 38,000 miles :biggrin5: anyway stripes soon to be removed and need to add some tint. So far mounted my scangauge up by my rear view mirror and made a front license plate holder from some aluminum stock.

    Welcome to Motoring Alliance!

    Have any big modding plans for the car, or are you going to keep things mild? It is certainly addicting with these fun little cars!

    Thanks! Probably going to keep things mild. Def want to add a stiffer rear swaybar. The JCW exhaust on it is nice but the sound of the Borla one... That one sounds sweet. Need to remove the stripes and do the Joey-mod to the headlights.

    Those are great places to start!

    A tune will be your best bang for your buck and should keep you happy with the power levels for many years!

    I recommend getting a tune from Jan at RMW (Revolution Mini Works)
