    Stripes.

    Greg, I thought this post was about stripes on our cars. Guess not, really. Stripes do make your Mini go faster though. It has something to do with the slight added weight on the bonnet, keeping the front end down, much like a spoiler at the back of a muscle car. Also the vinyl striping is aerodynamically engineered to direct the wind away from an open window, lessening the drag coefficients. So If you don't have the factory installed stripes, they can be obtained through many of our favorite vendors. Cheers, Carl.
    It's all part of life's rich tapestry.
