    If you want blacked out ones.. I know @OutMotoring and @Detroit Tuned sell them. They are US based, so don't know shipping, but imagine it won't be that much. Looking good! Saw that color in person this weekend and really like it.

    What track were you at? Did you get to drive?

    All Cooper S and JCW owners were invited to go on the track with their own car, I didn’t do it, but we could do taxirides with professional riders.

    Get a helmet and drive it sometime! There is NOTHING better than to get some seat time on a track in order to learn what YOU and your car can really do!

    Yup - if you don’t have any experience on the track, you could do HPDE with instructor. Many car clubs host these. However be warned.... it’s addicting.

    Either way - looks like a good time. :)

    I was in a crash on the Nuerburg ring and had a lot of trackdays on my motorcycle when I was younger

    Did you crash while on a motorcycle or in a car? If you crashed while on a motorcycle and have lived to talk about it...hats off to you! The same goes if you were in a car, but I still say that seat time is the best way to get to know what your car can do for you, as well as your own limits while behind the wheel.

    Oh - I miss those days. Track days/racing in a car is a blast... but on a motorcycle its way better (IMO). Nothing like putting a knee on the ground ~125mph.. or flipping the bike back and forth... backing it in during braking then flicking it.... miss those days.

    Ditto...
