I kind of wish I'd paid the extra 100 smackers for the rear fogs and I'm scratching my head a little about piano black window switches, but at least they aren't meddling toooo much with a good thing. The sport suspension tho... that's mind boggling.
As much as clear red lenses can act as reflectors, I suppose... which I guess means no, not very well haThey act as reflectors though right? I always wondered this personally. Since I "still have no MINI" I must ask!Cant argue with that. I actually thought that I had them when I saw the car... it's one of the strangest deletes I've seen on a vehicle. The housing and lenses are all there... they just leave out the bulbs, wires and buttons. So I have these cool red... lenses... on my rear bumper ha
Interesting set of numbers came up in this discussion on WRR. When you look at the numbers just from Mini USA, only 10% of Mini purchases are custom orders which, even though they make up roughly 90% of us here on the forums, means that the remaining 90% are configured by dealerships... and their bottom line is to shift as many cars as possible from the lot to the walk-in customers.I would guess they are trying to put distance between the MCS and JCW and forcing people to buy the higher priced JCW if they want the sport suspension. But that only really makes sense if (despite claims to the contrary) they are thinking about releasing a JCW F55 when/if the F55 sales furor quiets down.
I have one on my 94 Impala SS... great contraption. I didn't generally need one on the Ridgeline because the back window was so dark and I assumed both darker tint and the standard day/night switch on the Mini... that will teach me haIt wasn't hidden when I ordered mine, but I made the conscious decision that I wasn't going to drop that much cash into pressing a button on my mirror vs pressing a button on my side visor. It just didn't make the cost/benefit ratio cutoff. If I had unlimited cash, sure, why not. But that money went right on into the other stuff I wanted more. I do kind of wish I had splurged on the auto dimming mirror, though... these fools with the ******* mechanic, self installed, misaligned, high intensity headlight swap jobs shining directly through my little rear window are killin' me. And 18 wheelers...
I have auto dimming rear view mirror on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee "Orvis Edition"....was cool while it worked, but it stopped working years ago. I tend to think "simple is best" on everything! Having a lower elevation car just puts you in headlight range regardless...when that happens to me in my '02 I just flip on the night mirror....why don't new cars have that button? I hate high tech stuff...it never works "all the time"! I still have points in my 2.0 Liter '76 BMW 2002 and it never has failed me, not once! Call me old fashioned, that's fine with me!
