Mini Cooper S R53 JCW – Starting a new Project

Last year, we were all affected by the pandemic. But even in such strange times, positive things happen. Like me buying a Mini Cooper S, which I wanted to drive for quite some time. I noticed one in the trim that I wanted and went ahead with it.

Looked even better than on the pictures in the advert & was fitted with extra’s like:

  • Carbon GP bumper inserts
  • Carbon handle
  • Carbon JCW hood scoop
  • Carbon Mini R56 spoiler
  • Chrono pack interior
  • LED Angel Eyes
  • LED amber indicators
  • Dechromed exterior trim
  • MSD Coilpack & HT leads
  • 17″ R113 Black / Chrome wheels

A lot of work already has been done, this will be documented as well. Stay tuned 🙂

Thanks to my buddy Joost Evers of Hobbygarage Evers for helping me out!

Volvo S80 2.4T Chrome Side Indicators

Small modification, getting rid of the fried egg look and replacing them with Chrome / Amber versions does the front of the S80 good. Cost a small amount and looks much cleaner.

VW Lupo Luxury Heater knobs / dials

Added some luxury to the Volkswagen Lupo with some new up-to-date heater knobs / dials. They look a lot better than the stock controls and they also feel better when adjusting the controls. Small DIY modification which only cost about 5 dollars on Aliexpress.

Toyota Aygo new Dual Exhaust tip

Added a new dual exhaust tip to my trusty Toyota Aygo (Citybug). Not 100% satisfied with the fitment, will need to do some modding to get the look right. But the build quality is a lot better than the old one.
