Default That7Guy's New DD!

So the Miata was getting a little ridiculous to drive every day with the harnesses, clutch and stuff. Its also starting to become a little unreliable and unprofessional to drive to work so I went out and picked up one of these:




These are the crappy dealer pics. I'll post better ones when it gets cleaned up a bit!

Its on loan to my parents who are having car issues. They insist on buying unreliable cars so they need a backup

sweet. just dont put a lot of "i drive a race car!" stickers on it. I see this green mini on the GW parkway all the time and it's got a number on the side and tons of "sponsor" stickers all over it. I think it's just for show but I dunno.

Nice car, though. If they weren't so goddamn expensive I'd want one more. I got a ride in one once and was impressed.

Sweet little ride by the way. I've never driven one but have rode in one and like Savington, I was pretty impressed.

Indeed they are Enkei's. They came with the car and im not such a fan but they are better then the stock wheels which were also included. I think those will be on CL soon!

Hey, so do I! Actually the Mini is the wife's, but whatever.

Nice car 7, they are very fun. Once I feel like it's getting boring/old, it finds a way to surprise me again.

If over the course of time you find a good piggyback or another way to tune it, let me know cause I want to yank the blower and install a GT2554 on Meg's.
