Ok simple girly speak... :nugget: :grin:

The light on the side of the car (forward and down a bit from the wing mirrors) that flashes when you indicate a direction change (i know you probably don't worry about those but bear with me) has an inserted surround that standard on the mini cooper is black plastic and looks poo! :sick:

It can be easily changed for a chrome one (takes about five minutes) and looks a hundred times better! :cool:

these are the nice ones

So when you go to order one tommorrow look at a cooper side repeaters and then look at the cooper s (they have chrome ones as standard) and you'll see what I'm talking about! :grin:

I think they look a little big. They just don't seem to suit the proportions of the classic mini (sorry my personal taste).

Plus you can't have one of the "100% bmw free" stickers that some on here seem to like so much :cheese: :nugget: :tongue:

If they're bmw one I'd be more worried about how big the hole is behind them :sad: as they are clip items..........

It has fitted in the standard indicator holes but is held on by some rubber like thingy.

hmmm might not be too bad then. Only one way to find out whip them off then either sigh relief that no damage was done or you have the perfect excuse for that re-spray you've always wanted :grin: :cheese:

You have to bear with the die hard mini fans..... I personally have nothing against the new mini (it had to happen some time) and I think it's a good progressment of what the original mini was. It seems to be attracting a similar following of enthusiasts (ok there are exceptions but then there is with classic minis).

Just get it ordered and start planning your mods now :grin: (those 16s with the chilli pack will just seem soooo much smaller when you park next to one with 18s on) :nugget: :grin: :grin:

And lets be honest you were dreaming of me oiled up on the mini weren't you :nugget: :cheese:

I think as rule of thumb when the tyres are getting to be closer to your size than the car its time to stop :D

And if I say yes, will you come wash it first day !!

Hmmm drive from Dealership to London ... 21 miles of M3 ... very little to no dirt tracks along the way, one lady driver not urged to drive on pavements and through bushes ..... well yes just dirty enough for you to clean :D
Today's conundrum is still to tint or not to tint !!
