I also noticed "BMW" is stamped into the front subframe when I was changing the suspension bushings.

Going to the Brit Invasion, Thompson? If so, may see you there :bigthumb:


Dave, can't make it to the invasion this year, busy being dad this weekend. Apple picking this morning at Hackets on the island and rushed off to our Middle School field hockey game today in Milton, ironically against Stowe. Milton won 3-2, go Yellow Jackets! Sunday I've got to do some work at home for the office (cutting out another upcoming Land Rover rallye event decals) and won't be able to get away.

The Tritec MINI Cooper S engines certainly do have Mahle forged internals. The R53 Cooper S received these fine German parts into their stout little supercharged hearts. I broke the news on my blog back in 2007 I think it was...

's alright, missed a good time, I'm goin' back tomorrow to hang out w/ the MINI guys, a pretty good group this year - actually more MINI's than Mini's this time - well, maybe about even, if you count the Mini Mokes and such - was spreading the word about OctoberFAST w/ those guys, gonna try to print out the 'poster' from the OP...

OktoberFAST 2009 is located next to the Craft Fair at the Top Notch events field in Stowe, Vermont.
... where the Vermont Cheese, Beer and Sausage Festival is taking place the same weekend :drool:
