I'm currently 18 and my first car is a F56 Mini Cooper bought in March 2015 here are some modifications I have done to it since then. I wanted to make it look like a John Cooper Works since I knew I wouldn't get insured with one I wanted to make a Cooper look like one so below is what I have done I hope you enjoy it.




I managed to sneak a picture next to a real one which was fun.


Here is the car before it was modified as you can see a lot has been done



Hope you enjoyed it comment any improvements and what you like/don't like about the car

Car looks great Callum, good effort, and a great first car - mine was an '83 MG Metro.

Don't get too hung up on the scoop, petrol cap etc. I think what you've done is about right, ie it looks like a JCW from the colour scheme and roof spoiler.

You'd need pretty deep pockets to go much further: off the top of my head, bumpers front and back, bonnet, exhaust, petrol cap, wheel arches, brakes, etc. You might get lucky on ebay, and
great if you're handy with a spanner.


Have you got any further mods planned?

Ive found a bonnet on ebay for £410 so not too bad. I have got further mods planned for my car that being lowering coilovers and 3SDM 0.04 pictures below



If not these I cannot decide these are XXR 553's what wheels do you prefer. Either ones I want to powder coat them red.



Once stanced I'm going to get a stance nation windscreen decal on top of a red banner

I might then start on engine I'm talking re maps and performance parts to make it perform better

Good stuff,

I had a quick nosey on ebay, saw a few cheaper bonnets but all damaged.

Sounds like you've got a good idea how you want the car to look. Ah I remember the good old days, living at home, no kids... no ex wife..... money to spend on mods. :D good times. Since you're 18 I don't expect you've too many kids, or an ex-wife. ;)

Of those 2 wheels, I prefer the 2nd option, assuming you can get them in the correct fitment, offset etc. Whatever you do, keep us updated with pics.

Yeah no kids yet :) one day though I was looking at one with a few scratches from storage looks like the cleanest one. I think the second option would be good as well. Subscribe to this post and I think it keeps you updated not too sure but will definitely update every time I do something new
