1998 Rover Mini Mayfair
Coffee, tea, or Mini? The meal we are putting on the table today is a 1998 Rover Mini Mayfair running with automatic transmission. This is one of the most standard Mini models in the Mini MK7 generation compared to 1998 Mini Paul Smith LE, 1999 Mini 40th Anniversary, 2000 Mini Classic Seven, and 2000 Mini Cooper Sport. This Mini Mayfair is painted in light blue. A view from the front, there is not much of modification done to the car. The owner selected twin filament front side indicator lamp with a clear plain plastic lens glass. This type of front indicator lamp comes with chrome trim rim socket so that it looks shinier compared to the original orange glass.
Take a look at the wheel arches, it is painted in light blue to match the body color. What do you think? Do you think it should be painted with sky blue or electric blue? Or it is the best to be like this?
The side mirror is not originally made for the Mini but somehow it looks like the Torpedo type. A view from the back, the owner selected Aston look petrol cap for her car. Yes, “her”. The Mayfair emblem is still remaining on the car boot.
As for the wheels, this light blue Mini Mayfair is running on standard 5×12 Minilite painted in white. Will it look like pimped out cars if we soup it up with a set of Revolution 6×12 wheel? Or 6×13 Sportspack wheel?
Interior wise, it comes with standard beige leather seat. As this is a MK7 for the Japanese market, this Mini Mayfair comes with air-conditioning. Notice there is a SRS airbag fitted to the steering wheel too.
