    Super happy with the roof spoiler! Cost me nothing apart from bolts and paint!

    Slowly the Mini is "turning Japanese" AKA Subaru

    I can't see the pic from the office, but I found a key-ring for you!

    Looks good, but a bit streamline with the car. Does it give you any noticeable down force?

    That does not look half bad. Nice clean "out of the box" mod. :Thumbsup:

    Thanks for the comments . I was amazed how well it looks , as though it was designed for the Mini. I did the slight upward angle by eye sight but have not driven the car since fitting the spoiler as...............wait for it.........I'm in the process of fitting Subaru STI front struts......The Vapours for sure. Nice key ring. hahaha

    Not bad. You do know what that song is about though?

    I remember the song when I was a kid, even have the record but it not until moving to the states I found out that the song had another meaning. I prefer to use my hands to build cars..hahaha

    regarding the spoiler: it's not exactly a straight swap but with some plastic tubing, some coach bolts and some patience it took about 4 hours to fit.
