    New here, Ive owned a MINI for about a year now. I just traded my R56JCW for a R53 (it is still for sale BTW). I can't wait to meet more of you at the dragon this year.

    Welcome to M\A the FUN MINI site.

    So are you do you like the upgrade to an R53 from your R56?

    I see you appear not to like the Pac10. Welcome to the crowd anyway!

    A drunken bet I am afraid that was the result of the 2006 National Championship (UT vs USC). As a UT fan, I told a whole group of friends that I would change my XBL account name to PAC10sux if UT won and to fcukUT if they lost.....was not disappointed. Years later, it is my go to name when I am feeling exceptionally uncreative ;)

    As far as MODs, I am new to R53 stuff but no slouch to R56 upgrades.

    On the R56 JCW I had a 225WHP beast (intake DP, FMIC, tune, BOV, ect), but decided to go with a R53. I just bought her a few weeks ago and I am still trying to sell my (now stock) JCW. R53 planned mods (before the dragon):

    15% pully, Milltek header/exhaust, RSB, DDMworks intake, and some new tires/brakes.

    Thanks guys for the friendly welcome, looking forward to asking a lot of questions.

    You know why OSU fans are so happy about winning the college championship game.....???

    Because the their pro football teams suck so bad. (Bangles and Browns)
