    ‘06 Mini JCW - Jacktown

    They did a really nice job on the front seats. Replaced some foam, fabric, logos and added seat heaters.

    Drat! Sorry to hear about the date of the RSX. Too tip! Buy the Mini and tell her you’re storing it for a friend. (I’m storing quite a few cars for friends at home ;)
