    weird but true...the Mini said (on the OBC) that I was getting 27.4 MPG when I bought it back in December, exhaust and intake and it bumped up to 28.0 and stayed there since they went on in Feburary. Put the front lip on 2 weeks ago and got the rear on yesterday...flipping through the OBC, its now saying 30.1 MPG (average)

    anyway:

    That thing looks sick, although, the warmer weather is helping your mileage more than the new goodies.

    ^^^ yep, although in theory youll get better mpg from those alone. Id say they play a part but its minimal. Neat nonetheless!!! Are those Shitto neo-gens?

    my step mother's base Mini (Specially order it has so few options) gets a consistent 37-40 mpg. She does LOTS of driving (It's a 2006 with 38,000 on it as of 3 weeks ago)
