Thanks for the comments!

I now have:
Mini Cooper Supercharger
Calibra Turbo Leather interior (heated seats and door cards). Comfy.

It also has an 'F20' gearbox which is the close ratio, sport gearbox,
and LSD (Limited Slip Differential) which I never knew it had.

Here's one in daylight. This was taken the day I bought it. The Max power and Fast Car vinyl stickers around the door where removed as soon as I got it home. wink Also 'losing' mirrors soon, to keep it standard.
