Our Cooper S is still a little camera shy, but it will make its grand appearance online soon. Truth be know, the car's original 16-inch wheels are currently being used on our red Cooper, so the "S" is sporting some, well, not very flattering wheels that we pulled from our private stash. Unfortunately, they're not exactly the coolest-looking wheels ever available. However, the car should be on normal-looking wheels in the next few days; look for photos soon after.

We have been working on our plans for the car, and things are starting to take shape. As originally stated, it will be a Street Mod beast, while we'd also like to do some prep work that would be suitable for track days. (We're currently working on a feature story about track days, on-track driver schools and the like, and we have a feeling that a few cars in the GRM stable will be receiving roll bars soon.)

Our performance benchmark for the car is going to be the current BMW M3. Can BMW Group's most humble offering run with their top dog?
