SilverBeast Gets Daytime Running Lights

  

We recently put Daytime Running Lights On PaceBeast and we were so pleased that we had to fit them to SilverBeast Our JCW Coupe.

Last weekend I picked up my Mum’s BMW 318iS Coupe so convoyed back with Peanut in the JCW. We kept swapping places on the long drive, first P leading as she had the sat nav and then me. And yes just like you find yourself looking at your car’s reflection in a shop window, I spent a lot of time admiring these lights in the rear view mirror of the JCW Coupe! 

Bottom line we love them and the added road presence it gives the car. Roll on the next mod – auxiliary gauges!

SilverBeast Gets His Red A-Panels

 All of our cars have common features, they all have a 500 on their number plate and they all have their own number BP500 -1, 2, 3 and 4. BP for Beastie and peanut, 500 as on the number plate and 1,2,3 or 4 depending on which car it is.. The MINIs all have one more common feature, they all have A-panels in the same colour as the roof. Cooper Beast is red with a white roof and white A-Panels, ClubBeast is Pepper white with a black roof and A-Panels and now finally SilverBeast has the look too, being silver white with a red roof and A-panels. Just in time for our forthcoming roadtrip to France and Italy, where we drive the 1000 mile route of the Mille Miglia road race. Continue reading

Himley Hall MINI Meet – 12th May 2013

 It has been a few years since we last went to the Himley Hall MINI meet and as we have always enjoyed the show it was time we went again. We went with YAM MINI, which gave us a chance to catch up again with some old friends from the MINI community whom we had not seen for a while, the Gidfather, SMonster, Tweedbean, Supermario, to name but a few. As always it is this opportunity to renew old friendships that makes these MINI events such fun. Continue reading
