2002 4.6is, with the recommended 18" BMW wheels to replace the original 20s (the 275 front, 315 rear Micheline Diamari summer combo is not good, at all, in the winter - we are using Blizzak LM-25s, and they are awesome).

Waiting semi-patiently for developments regarding the rumoured M version of the new X5 or perhaps X6..... at first, we were thinking an "M" version of the X's would be sacrilegious, but what the hell... can't hurt to look

See sig. Everyone freaks out at the slightest bit of snow and the city shuts down, so driving/not driving isn't really a big deal. Last time it snowed I found a traffic circle and practiced some oversteer for awhile without seeing another car.

Given Texas is mainly just cool...I'll prolly stick with the M3. Of course, if need be, I could always 'borrow' the wife's GL550...or pull out my STi for the rare snow. Heh, given my STi is mainly prepped for the track, it'll be like X-games style...drifting and throwing snow from all 4 tires...=)

IT IS REAL.....


MINI Conquers Snow and Ice
The Monster Garage turns a MINI into a Snowmobile!
How about a MINI Cooper that can claw its way over 4-foot snow drifts and speed effortlessly across a frozen lake? Is this the next new model? Not exactly.

A sneak preview of the finished product.
Click for a larger image.




A bright-red MINI Cooper was transformed into a larger-than-life, 300 horsepower snowmobile by Discovery Channel's Monster Garage TV program.

The program takes vehicles and transforms them into outrageous, but functioning re-creations, doing double duty not only as a car or truck, but as in MINI's case, a snowmobile. The trick is that the building process cannot take longer than five days or cost more than $3,000.

A team of five guest fabricators led by show-host and custom motorcycle builder, Jesse James, spent five days creating the custom snowmobile out of a MINI Cooper.

With the aid of the custom mechanical wizardry, the MINI Cooper morphs into a snowmobile exhibiting a raked stance. Skis lower under the front end and a pair of deeply grooved traction belts extend under the rear wheels to grip the snow and ice.

Once completed the Monster Garage MINI will be pitted head-to-head with a Polaris snowmobile in snowy Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Monster Garage's Jesse James will be behind the wheel of the monster MINI while Richard Petty of NASCAR fame will pilot the snowmobile.
