Hey guys I'm Alex! I am picking up my Espresso 500 Pop this coming Saturday. I am a big gear head and all around car guy. The 500 will make for the perfect daily driver.

My other car is a 2006 Mini Cooper S which is my devoted toy. I am in the process of building a pretty potent motor for it. 1.8L Stroker 9.5:1 Compression, Race cam, Long tube race header, C30-94 Rotrex Supercharger, FMIC, Driveshaft Shop Stage 2.9 axles, Vipec Standalone ECU, and a few other goodies. It will be putting down over 350whp/270wtq at 8k rpm.

Here is a recent pic before going into the garage for the motor tear down.

I will be leasing the Pop. So the most I probably will do is run a set of matte black 949Racing 15x8 wheels for spring/summer daily driving. And stock wheels with winter tires for winter. Then find another set of wheels when I got the MINI back on the road.

I own a set of the 949 Racing 6ULs in matte black, they are really sweet rims, went with matching valve stems and lugs to finish off the look, lightweight they make for a nice rim, might be good to look at them for the 500. Look forward to seeing pics both of the 500 and the Mini when completed.
