Re: Beginning of a new Era. Say hello to Apollo

Like to see this in person. Can't remember "iced chocolate paint". You'll see it at some point. Heading to Boston for a week. It was a special order paint so there isn't even an owners club on NAM for it. I had to create it myself and even then I'm finding few people. Must have been a ver...

Re: Pickleball Tournament

I've driven by this place before. Looks interesting. I don't have anything on my schedule around that time, so I should be available. :D

Beginning of a new Era. Say hello to Apollo

Everyone, meet my 2013 Mini Cooper S JCW, Apollo. Iced Chocolate with black and beige leather interior, Anthracite headliner, JCW tuning kit with exhaust and gauge pods. Transferred over my wheels and tires from Sirius. Will be changing out the center caps on those wheels later. Enjoy the pictures. ...

End of an Era. Goodbye Clubman

I will post some pictures soon. Don't have my computer today. Down in KC celebrating my birthday. Traded in Sirius, my clubman, for an Iced Chocolate 2013 Cooper S with JCW tune. Named him Apollo. Thought it fitting given my project car is named Rocky. No significant plans for modification right now...

Re: Lilo's Shaved Ice MINI Meetup, Friday, July 7th, 7:15

Hope everyone had fun. My mom and dad were making Shish Kabobs (or Kebabs...Collin, lol) and I decided to have dinner with them.

Looking forward to upcoming events. I will be bringing the drone to quite a few.

Had it with me on the 4th for the parade, but...well...rain. :roll:

Re: Cylinder Head

You should disassemble it, give it a good clean and a valve job.....check the cam for wear unless you've got a new one already. Haven't bought new cams. May upgrade one or both. The shop the cylinder head is at is the one Baron uses. We are waiting for them to tell us what is or isn't wrong with th...

So just a good cleaning and reassembly or rebuild if needed. We figured out what caused cylinder 2 to go, but think cylinder 4 has something to do with the cylinder head.

Cylinder Head

How much does it cost to port and polish a Cylinder Head on an R56 Cooper S? Trying to figure this out to see if it might be worthwhile to do on my new car or just stick with a good cleaning and/or rebuild if needed.

Re: Roof Rack Install

That's reassuring. I just have to ask someone to help me out with the installation and it's good to go. Thanks, Zack! I'm available to help with that stuff. For my car, it came factory installed, like most minis, with these mounting points in the drop rail. My biggest fear was scratching the paint ...

Re: Roof Rack Install

Zack, I want to see how your installation would look like. It's not for my mini but I ordered a Jeep Roof Rack and am currently waiting for its shipment. This will be my first time installing it so I'm kind of feeling uneasy with my skill. It's currently not mounted on the car but the installation ...

It was pretty enjoyable.

Played some board games. Some people went on the brewery tour.

I believe 5 Minis total showed up. Not bad for a little get-together

Re: choking mini

This is on a 2010 Clubman S. I charged the battery to full capacity, installed it into the car. Took it down to put the tester on it at the parts store. I started the car with the tester hooked up, there was a delay on the tester before it moved over to show the alternator as good and charging. The...
