great alloys, and the brake rotors seem larger too. but the body kit seems too jazzy, for a mini. ruins that understated coolness it has about it's self. and the ICE is totally uncalled for. for all the extra power he gained out of engine tweaks, the additional weight of the ICE must have nullified it. any specs on the engine? btw, the rear end reminds me of the Clio V6.

Yepp, the bodykit kinda ruins the coolness of a Mini, still it is very well made.
I saw another one somwhere, donno specs but the pic is right here with me :



I know some people like these, but I'd rather have a Tweaked Cooper S by BBR, without all that body Mods..
And manticore You got Specs on this one ? *(the one u posted?)
And guess what.. Its Gran Turismo on PS2 .. on the screen!

For people who are wondering -

ICE = In Car Entertainment (Sony coined this term i belive)

not to be confused with "Internal Combustion Engine" in this context
