Why didnt you spray the inside or the engine bay, Not meaning to be rude but it makes it look like a bit of a half arsed job when people dont do the inside or engine bay.

I can appreciate the amount of effort that's gone into that, although it's not to my taste.. paint looks good. Don't know why people [email protected] off other peoples hard work, it may not be your kinda thing, but do you people realise the amount of time and effort that goes into making something like that? If you haven't got something nice or even NEUTRAL to say, just don't say anything at all!

Bet if you have a accerdent you wont be covered, if they missed a 0 off the end by mistake they will come up with a reason to not give you a penny, and they will only repair it to standard if they were stupid enough to even touch it.
Or your on your parents policy - which makes the insurance invalid if your the main driver anyway.
Or your 3rd party which i still cant belive it would be that cheap and if you get involved in a accerdent you get fark all really.

Recently re insured my 1275cc with all mods declared, struggled to find somone that would even quote me and cheapest there was is £1100, thats at 18 with 1 years no claims no accerdents or points.

Friend running standard 998 mayfair, 19 years old 2 years no claims cheapest quote £500.


Its people that Scam/have invalid insurance are one of the reasons that insurance prices are such a joke.
For some reason i think theres somthing dodgy.

what kit is that? not a big fan, don't think it follows the lines of the Mini as well as a Zeemax, but it different!

like what you did with the boot! personally i think you have done a great job, creating a car like that is going to cause controversy ;D but then that's what you want to be doing ;D

modifying is all about being different, and lets face it, with Mini's everything has been done before, so you have to do something like that to be individual!!

needs dropping though, looks silly with that arch gap! you wont go through ya arches, Mini suspension is so stiff it doesn't move! i have a smoothed in Zeemax on my Mini, and its lowered as much as possible, 5/6 years later the arches are still fine!

Got a feature lined up?
