Issue #48 is our first hi-performance Clubman cover, showing where the brand is moving towards. Additionally, we keep moving with our Project Alter-Ego- our 2002 S rebuild - with designer Murray Pfaff. Our first major project MINI, we will be moving forward with another project MINI with M7Tuning and other allies very soon this year. In this issue you'll also find our DIY install with P3 Gauges of their digital readout for R56-based MINIs, a DIY install with MGP Calipers of their exclusive caliper covers, and coverage of several MINI events that only we and club newsletters consistently cover. Exclusive to MC2 is Drew Boyt's nasty Clubman, and the first US-built DuelL-styled MINI, both of which cover 4 pages of details. We're delighted to showcase the first news about a new type of puncture-resistant tire for sports cars from TuffTire(tm), and will be closely working with them to engage readers in a contest very soon. We round out the editorial package with X-Raid coverage, and our usual detailed columnists on sound, Mini models, and the Canadian market.
