Thread: Martini Mini

  1. #1

    Default Martini Mini

    Went to the BMW dealer to buy a 3 series, but ended up taking a test drive in a Cooper S .. I was sold. This is how I got him in August '08.



    Got the Stage I tuning and Installed the JCW bodykit.


    Lowered with springs and added 15mm spacers.


    Front splitter.






    Mini Challenge Diffuser tunnels.


    New JCW seats (Recaro Sportster)


    Removed rear seat and added some bars


    Lowered on coils. 2.5 degrees of camber and martini stripes.






    Had to raise the back as the wheel well lines came out when rolling the car


    Got 20mm spacers in the front. Hit my door while parking


    Friend of mine did some video's
    On the track: http://youtube.com/watch?v=IxBaR7FRplg
    Stuck on the ferry: http://youtube.com/watch?v=tIZ3h2cHDEw

    Painted headlight rings. This is how the car looks today.

    Not happy with the current stance. The wheels are crap so plans are to fix that with Work Meister 2pc 18x9.5 et25 and extended wheel arches .. but no money yet

    Wheels would definitely make a world of a difference. Looks good though

    That thing looks tits, except for the current wheels. Something with a bit of dish would do WONDERS for that. I love everything apart from that.

    That video on the ferry is hilarious.

    what does diffuser actually do?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diffuser_(automotive)

    Basically reduces the air speed underneath the car to better match the speed from the air that comes from the top of the car creating less turbulence and less drag.

    The diffuser that M3This an I are running are form the Mini Challenge race car. They are not sold, so that is why they are so hard get.
