It's on there now. Those pics are when I just threw the hood on. With the ViS hood you have to cut and betalink the grill in. Also, since the hood only comes gel-coated....I didnt clear coat it and now its green from sun exposure. Like Kevlar... I like it but eventually when I get the trunk, fenders and doors in CF...I will do a repaint...

Well I paid 22K for mine almost fully loaded. And its Just a Cooper. Put about 15K in mods and gutted it (which is retarded cause I paid an extra 6K for the packages). The only thing left to do is motor/trans. I have a 6-speed with a fidanza flywheel and clutchmasters clutch. Axles to hold 800HP are gonna have to be made. And the engine/turbo setup will run me about 20K (700-800HP). So how much is that? Ummm.....roughly almost 60K? Then I have to start modding the BMW....

I got all my parts NIB from the local race team that was dissolved. So I lucked out. The wheels are 18x7.5 et42 Exel TZ-10's wrapped in some cheap rubber..

It happens....its the funnest car Ive ever owned. And I would buy another one in a heartbeat. At the local races many people talk trash about how cute the Mini is but then when its time to run and they see my cage and all my mods (some Srt's, Mustangs and whatnot) they just putt down the road...its the funniest shizzbot ever ..
