My mods would be:

P700's, sump guard, retro mirrors, glass indicators, fog light mounted on the rear valance, centre exit 'zorst, dunno if its the pics but it looks like the rear plate could do with centralising a tad :)

Oh, and a session with the lowering stick ;)

You want a someford works exhaust

 

 

Damn pricey, you can get a cheap second hand centre exit RC40 and make it look similar with a bit of grinding and welding to the tailpipe.

I'd say, get some OE white reverse rims 10" of course, keep the BMC stickers and GB sticker, ditch the rest, keep the boot light and 3 spots, chrome mirrors, over riders, lower a bit, get rid of that horrible stickered dash! That is all :) Nice mini still :D

Reg plate on the rear looks to low, might be the reason why it looks upset at the rear :(  :P

Just realised why its a pressed plate so it have have slighty different dimensions which might explain why
