Sharp wheels! I love the red / black mono look, probably one of the best examples Ive seen on a MINI.

I am really fighting from buying the BBK myself, I just wish I had an unlimited bundle of cash!

Shawn,

You change wheels about as often as I change socks!

Have you sold the last set yet?

I think he is planning to make a bar out of them, kinda like the ones you saw guys make with beer cans in college. ;)

Wonder if we should rename this forum "Shawn's second home"


In an effort not to steal yet another thread...the wheels look the biz!

The Springs are H-sports and the swaybar is an Alta 22mm.
