    Hi fellow Mini owners,
    I’m new to this forum, my name is Jürgen and I live in Belgium.

    I owned a very nice R55 but then replaced it by a company car, but now I had to by me my own car again and since september 2017 I have a 2017 Mini Cooper S F57 convertible with JCW exterior pack...
    I am planning on some mods (delete the chrome...) and hope to find useful information and interesting ideas, and of course a lot of nice MINI’s

    Welcome to M/A! :D I see the mod bug has hit you as well. It's what we all seem to do once we buy our MINIs. By the way, nice job on the chrome blackouts!

    I had a good day and was able to wax the car as preparation for summer.
    Also experimenting with chrome delete on beltline and striping at the back

    I see in the pic you did one side and left the other for testing. Do you have a side pic with the chrome delete kit? I assume its tape?
