MINI hits 30k miles

First off Happy Christmas to everyone :-)

First pic
So thats now 30k on the MINI , at least 4k on the new wheels and tyres and still plenty of tread left (result). Car is running great.
Had a funny moment today when the cruise control switched off because I hit a large patch of standing water at 70mph on the A77 , didnt realise triggering traction control turned off cc LOL. No matter , car just tracked thru it , mostly down to those GSD3 tyres ...

Second pic is of the rear wheel with the car parked on a hill, subsequently I was pleased to see that the wheel made it up into the wheelarch (hence the pic) , the car would look superb lowered to that degree but hey it wouldnt be practical as the front spoiler is already an issue on std ride height.
G*d how sad am I taking a photo of that? LOL

Third pic is an EVO2 seen out on my travels and its just for my mate Dave :-)
Not a patch on yours Dave.

CBR1000RR 2006 model got a good review in MCN this week .... mmmm just maybe .....

Enjoy your mince pies
