Meet Crystal

Just bought my first Mini after about a year ( on and off ) of looking and finally found a car that i just felt right in. Its strange how one mini can feel completely different from another one.

She is a 998c Carb'd and is so much fun to drive and surprisingly has a nice amount torque for a 998! Not too many plans, Fletcher side exit exhaust or similar, black seats and door card to go alongside the red, reverse lamp and spotlights along with stoneguards for the headlights and pressed number plates just subtle stuff really.

Here are some photos of her, excuse the bonnet, it locked but its lifting the the drivers side, looks worse than it is because of the angle of the photos common thing with minis.

That looks super clean! Is that a Ritz model? I was wondering if to get a set of those vintage black number plates like you have but up to what year are you allowed them?
