As far as I know all you need is an extra set of hangers/rubbers, im just in the process of doing the same thing
Havent actually done it yet, just trying to find out exactly whats needed before i start.
Lee, try searching the forums there are alot of posts on this already
Think JP mentioned something about just having to get rid of the spare wheel or something. Not 100% sure, but he's bound to turn up like a bad penny sooner or later, and will either tell me I'm talking rubbish and haven't been listening to him, or that, yes indeedy, I am very clever, and honestly do have a clue what he's on about
It can be done - well i got one fitted to my MOC. I got a friend to do it, he works with Minis all the time. The convertible was a little trickier because it has cross bracing along the floor and i needed to make a few adjustments. But from what i understand on the regular One or Cooper, everything should be basically the same as the S - although if you don't have run flats then you'll need to get rid of the spare tyre. Just get a can of tyre weld or something similar in case you get a flat! You may just need an extra hanging bracket and rubber bushes to hang the new exhaust. By the way the S exhaust sounds much better than the standard One exhaust. No one could tell me before i got it done if it sounded any different - but it definately does sound sportier. Theres a little extra drone a motorway speeds, but the noise it makes when chasing the red line definately makes up for it!! Sorry i couldn't be of more help on the technical side of things, but i just want to reassure you it can be done!! Good luck.
