VEHICLE STORY

I'll be coming up on 5 years of ownership of this car and have passed 50,000 miles with it and every one has been a blast. I love this car more than any other I have ever driven. It remained mostly stock for 3 years but in the summer of 2015 I decided to start building it. A couple of hiccups along the way (including 2 dead high pressure fuel pumps and a blown motor) but I can say the Mini is just about at a place where I'm happy with all its characteristics. Stage 2 tune with a few small handling mods is where this car really shines. I finally have what I think is a perfect mountain/canyon carving car, despite the lack of either of those things here on Long Island.Check out a review of my car (as of Feb 2017) by my buddy Jay of JR14: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4P-7L0MVu7M&ab_channel=JR14
