Or at the traffic lights :mrgreen:

This MINI is also quite interesting....

Like the classic Mini there have been quite a few engine transplants carried out to R50/R53 MINI's by enthusiasts and conversions to turbo, etc. Z-Cars did at least one R53 MINI-Honda V-tec engine transplant and the link below shows in some detail fitting a Honda K24 into a 2006 R53 MINI Cooper S:-
