Pdc still works as it should.
It's a sported exhaust. Loud deep sound. I love it.

Next i want to fit coil overs to get it sitting as it should. Maybe change 18" rims to some 17". Think 18" look to much on the compact. 17" with a slight stretch on tyre. Ok
Been looking at hsd coil overs or bc racing. Not decided which ones to go for yet still reading online for pros & cons. If you guys have and advice would love to hear whether shocks/springs is good also.
Currently running billy b4s all round with m sport springs. Handles ok, a little harsh for Uk roads. Rear subframe bushes need changing asap so that doesn't help handling as back end all over the place.

Ah, that is not a common color here either, but it shows up. More Alaska Blue and then lighter blues vs dark metallic's

Seems Sportex are sold in the US but for Mini Cooper's though.
