It's a 2013 Mini Cooper JCW with NM Engineering suspension and wheels. The hatchback is super practical for what little hauling I do during the week, and the fuel economy is fantastic. It's also likely as fast around town as the M3 -- gotta love modern engineering.

No luck. My highest priority is the wing. My car has no 3rd brake light in the rear deck as it has the factory wing, so ideally I'd find a real LTW wing with the built in 3rd brake light so that I could leave my rear deck as is.

You and I are in the same boat. A very large boat with thousands of people haha. I'm considering cutting up my Abrahams rep wing if it doesn't sell a la PTG to install the third brake light.

Just a low rise. Selling it for 425+shipping, which $75 bucks less than it is new from abrahams. Its never been used, painted, etc. Basically pulled out of the box then I realized the hassle of my lack of third brake light in the window.

I have a real LTW wing I would part with (off a Lightweight cut by PTG for the 3rd brake light).

I hate the drip rail paint failure. You're going to be touching that up for years.

PM me with what you'd want for it. If it's a reasonable price I'll buy it today.

Spent some time today working on the interior of the car.

First up was installing new shift and brake boots, along with a new brake handle with ///M colored stitching.




Next up was to install a European-market 3-spoke steering wheel. There's a guy on eBay who re-covers old wheels and supplies them to the US with airbags and slip rings. I used the excellent instructions of a fellow forum member to guide the install. Thankfully wiring in this wheel to the M3 simply requires adapting the horn wiring (I cut off the plug from the horn contact to make it work).







The new parts really make the car feel much younger!

Very nice work. Now all you need to do is get those Vaders retrimmed and it'll look like new.
