    Greetings fellow motorer's,

    Fairly new to this forum, I finally got a chance to sit down and fill out some info and add pics. We bought our 2nd MINI (Beaker) this past May. It's an R56 in Horizon Blue/Black w/Silver bonnet stripe. Picked up some custom wheels this summer and love em'. Sure wish we had kept the first MINI (Mr Magoo). My wife and I are "sharing" Beaker. At least we know Mr Magoo is in good hands as we know the new owner. Anywho, hello to all and happy motoring!!

    Welcome...

    Love those wheels, I've been a sucker for the Panasport look for quite a long time and while not all MINIs can pull them off yours does it well. Thanks for adding the them to the WheelFinder.

    thanx for the welcomes and compliments! Trying to keep Beaker as unique but as stock as possible for now. The new color, Aero Kit, and wheels should do the trick for while. I know once the mod bug bites, it not only keeps biting, but usually opens up cans of worms. :devil: Looking to buy another house soon, so moneys need not be spent on Beaker for a bit.

    Thanx Rixter!! They are 17" Rota RB's in gunmetal. Absolutely love em'!! Beaker came with the 16" Bridge Spokes that I'm going to use for the winter. What's also great about these wheel, is that they are 4 lbs (each) lighter than the Bridge Spokes!! Here's a link for more info:
