    1.Please tell us about your MINI when it was delivered. Option Packages along with the Year, Model and Color.

    [imgR]http://www.motoringalliance.com/gallery/data/626/medium/CIMG1812.JPG[/imgR]She is a 2005 MINI Cooper hardtop originally delivered on June 17, 2005 as Liquid Yellow. I was real excited to order a MINI with the roof color the same as the body, even though the salesmen thought I was crazy. Now you see same color roof tops all over the MINI community. She was delivered with the premium package because I had to have a sunroof!

    2.Why did you choose a MINI?

    When I saw the movie Italian Job and said any car that can go down a 6 foot hallway is the car for me!


    3. Please tell us about the various phases your MINI has taken as your mods progressed.

    Within a month of me owning her I upgraded to a Miltek Exhaust and a Konan Air filter. That’s about all I can do but it really made a difference. About 3 years ago I upgraded the wheels and tires from 15†to 17â€. Love the look!

    4. What has been your modification philosophy?

    I love driving her and she doesn’t need to be changed to much!!

    5. What has been the most difficult mod completed to date? Why?

    [imgr]http://www.motoringalliance.com/gallery/data/626/medium/CIMG3120.JPG[/imgr]This isn’t really about a mod to the car but the paintjob. When we were temporarily living in Maryland I entered a raffle to win a free paint job. I won the raffle. I was just going to repaint the car the same color but I was given the choice of choosing another color! After looking at the colors for a couple of weeks Tangelo is what I chose. The paint job is absolutely beautiful but we dealt with many issues after we got her back. They just didn’t know how to put her back together properly. After we moved NC a wonderful body shop in Charlotte was able to fix all of her problems and she is perfect now.

    9. What are you planning next? What remains to be done? What are your goals?

    I would like to get stripes and more chrome on her. I love the checkered look but am not quite sure what I should do next.

    10. Please list all current mods.

    17†tires and chrome wheels
    Miltek exhaust
    Konan airfilter

    Congrats! I remember seeing your MINI at the Beltway run last year and thinking what a unique car you have. As you can tell from both of ours, we are into the "unique" themes!
