December 17, 2008:
Try as I might, it seems that I just can’t keep saying no to folks that want “auto-up” for their MINI (at least the non-R56/57 people!)
A while ago, Mike (mcrtech on Metroplex MINI) twisted my arm hard enough that I said that if he was able to collect enough interested folks to justify the costs of another production run, I would do it … in turn, he has started a thread over at MetroPlex, and is keeping track of interest over there.
However, many MINI owners are not members of Metroplex MINI – so with thanks to gnatster, there is now a “potential group buy” thread on NorthAmericanMotoring – if you are interested in purchasing a circuit (perhaps the last ever production run), then please visit the NAM thread.
This circuit works only in 2002-2006 hardtop MINIs and 2005-2008 convertibles (ie: R50/R53/R52); it is NOT compatible with R56 MINIs or the Clubman.
