Issue #44 is our 4th in a ongoing series of MINI Futures, our series about what's coming down the road for MINI. This issue we exclusively divulge plans for the MINIvan, and the cargo van with the aid of our Design Editor, Mark Stehrenberger's stunning renditions.
We follow with some great event coverage from the Italian Job charity event now in its 20th year, and then One Lap of America. Of course, we have MOTD 2013 coverage- six pages of it. We have a report on the recent Texas meeetup, too.
Getting techy, we dyno test AEM's newest intake system that actually gets us 12hp for less than $400. WOW! Our audio editor changes the factory wiring to the way it should have been for better bass sound, too. Part 3 of 4 parts on suspension is on coilover shocks, with coil springs next issue.
We exclusively preview MINI of Knoxville's first series of custom MINIs, their MOTD 2013 edition. Then finish with our columnists, adding LeeAnn Shattuck, the Car Chick, to our lineup of words, wit and solid insight.
