    Definately!!! and don't let anyone tell you any different

    At the end of the day it's what YOU like and stuff everyone else! I will always try to assist where I can

    Just because something isn't to my choice doesn't mean i'm not going to pass on information I know to stop anyone acheiving their goal

    Surely that cant be spacers Im sure they used the axles from the honda they took the engine from...

    Same as kimini.com
    That isn't a Mini, it's a spaceframe with a Mini bodykit over the top, it could have been a camper van if required!

    See here for example, this is a space frame Mini in build http://farm1.static.flickr.com/126/3...c086f3.jpg?v=0

    Where the hell would you park it?

    Have you looked at the Zeemax kits that they do for the beemer?

    Be warned that it will steer and handle like a pig and eat wheel bearings

    I like that , those wheels would wear the bearings out slightly quicker, whenever you widen the track it puts more leverage on the bearings, but who cares if it looks like that

    Be nice if your E36 looked that good

    Zeemax certainly aren't cheap but you will get what you pay for. IIRC they have been about for years so obviously know what they're doing
