One of my friends has a c class, and it has the Mercedes Benz logo on the windshield wipers. Not to be out done, I made some Mini emblems to go on the Mini Clubman. Lol, I don’t think it would be so easy to make the BMW roundel for the z4 due to the colors, but I may go for that next.
The door skin on one of the rear split doors on my Clubman would pop off frequently…I found out all of the snaps were broke. So I designed some that were more heavy duty, and now the door skin is solid.
I hate it when the interior of cars come apart. However, 3d printing can resituate this problem.
40 years on It’s New Year’s Eve so I’m reflecting on 2015′s new cars and comparing them to equivalent models from 1975. The new Mini Cooper Clubman has a direct 1975 ancestor in the Mini Clubman Estate which had been introduced in 1969 and remained in production until 1980. The original Clubman had 1.0 L -1.3 L 4 cylinder engines. The new Cooper Clubman has engines from a 136 hp 1.5 L 3 cylinder petrol to a 192 hp 2.0 L 4 cylinder as well as 2.0 L Diesels
In 1975 Mini was part of the newly nationalised British Leyland Motor Corporation, in 2015 it is part of the BMW Group
