thank you for visiting my site, especially this page. i pride myself on dedication, both to my car and to the companies i represent. if you would like to become a sponsor of this 2003 MINI Cooper S owned by Mike Garcia, please inquire below. i have a very professional sponsorship packet available upon request, which will be addressed directly to your company or organization.

there are many levels of sponsorship, which can be customized to suit both parties involved. the current sponsor list includes the following companies:

please contact me immediately if you can provide sponsorship for any of the following items or services:

Rear Adjustable Sway Bar
Adjustable Dampening Shocks,
Sport Springs - 1.0" Drop, front and rear, or full coilover racing suspension
Custom High-Flow Headwork
Big Brake Upgrade
McCullough 6000K H7 Headlight HID Bulbs

if you would like to have your company name proudly displayed in professionally die-cut vinyl graphics on this vehicle for all show and race events, as well as this very website, please contact me at your convenience. the little MINI has traveled over 24,000 miles in the first year of ownership, and has attended 5 mountain runs with hundreds of other MINI owners, 4 autocross events, and over a half dozen shows, including winning 3rd place in its category at the 2003 nopi nationals, just three weeks after purchasing the car!

mike garcia has spent well over $42,000 in modifications and additions, all of which are documented and promptly updated on the mods list page. the vehicle, as well as all aftermarket parts, are insured to the maximum allowed level by Mike Garcia via an expensive, custom tailored insurance policy with AllState Insurance. to build this vehicle again according to AllState Insurance, including the current value of the car, would be over $92,000. i have been professionally tuning vehicles since 2001 (as a hobby since 1997) when i opened my own business and even after leaving the business working with a startup aftermarket parts business in the Orlando, Florida area.

we finished the building phase of the 2007 season, competed heavily in the 2008 show and race season, and now looking forward to 2009 with over 20 events planned! make sure your company gets the advertising it deserves by riding along with this wonderful vehicle. most tuners only have speed OR sound, not many have both done so successfully as this vehicle clearly demonstrates.
