    and an old one! 311,000 views in 20 hours. Not that these guys have any creds to mod a Mini, but it'll be interesting to see what they do with it.

    also, it's a 4K video, so if you have one of those monster screens on your computer, go full screen

    It's amazing how a few drone flights can spice up a video. :)

    Also, nice Mini! I like the MCM guys.

    so they are getting serious about the mods now, and since all real Minis are supercharged, they are adding one to the classic Mini as well. And they are excited: "this is the best thing we've ever done, other than being born"

    Very interesting. I hadn't considered putting a R53 supercharger on a classic Mini.

    Hmmmm...

    I've been looking at these for a while now.....this is an SPI car so it takes a little more to make it work, but the results will be fantastic.

    These are the guys whose kit I was looking at for Buzz....

    It's fun to watch the uninitiated learn how difficult it can be to work under the bonnet of a classic Mini.

    if my '05 mini is fat and ugly, then the '15 Minis are morbidly obese
