  1. I just purchased a previously owned 2005 cool blue S cabrio, manual (sold, because previous owner got too many speeding tickets). I have enjoyed greatly reading of all your mods. I plan to do a number of the same ones. I live in Tucson, AZ

  2. Thanks for sharing… Speedee and I continue to work on our mod list… latest was the by pass valve, and it rocks!!

  3. THANKS MCSman! I saw those a while back – and then recently I decided I wanted one but couldn’t find them again… 🙂

  4. BlimeyCabrio–Great Mods. Got some fantastic ideas, and already ordered some stuff.

    Thanks for all your efforts in educating us.

  5. Wow, I am impressed. I have always liked the Mini and you have taken it to another level.

    Thsnks for sharing.

  6. Mini thanks for taking the time to share your projects and good tips. I love my BRG ’05 MCC but your blue MINI with the great wheels is the nicest color/wheels combo I’ve seen. Thanks again.
