    Looks good. But you know when I look at them they look a little to the right I think you should redo them!:D

    It accommodates the new Galaxy S5 I picked up quite well... even with the Spigen SlimArmor case on the phone.

    Maybe my favorite MINI name ever.

    Owner of MINI with eyelashes on it: "What's your MINI's name?"
    Savvy: "Nunya"

    Try here

    the one thing I did different was used an oven instead of a heat gun. Let the oven get to 180F, turn it off, then place the whole housing, minus the bulbs, in for about 15 minutes or so. Take it out and start pulling apart. If it doesn't go, put it back in for a little longer. Just be sure the oven is OFF!

    Danke sehr. I really do need to take some better pics of this one. My first MINI... I have a metric $#!+-ton of pics. This one, not so much. I'll update with some more pics once I get them downloaded from the phone.

    Yeah we need to blackout that belt line next and remove the checkerboard A-pillar vinyl.

    That lower Areo grill looks awesome....:idea::D

    You car is turning into another fine looking RM R53.:devil:

    Looking good Savvy. :Thumbsup:

    Nice updated pic's Savvy, but you need to get some new ones without the checkmate checkerboards on the side. I am glad you removed them a while back because your car looks so much better without them. :Thumbsup:
