Question One for the Mini Wizards

Hi guys.
I have an 02 mini One. Unfortunately due to the mileage I do each week, an r53 cooper S is out of the question for the mean time due to the supercharger not liking to pass petrol stations! I will at some stage have a Cooper S because I adore them! At the moment I am making the most of what I have and tuning the One,got a bluefin superchip and piper cross cai. Look out for a gasflowed bigger throttle body and an exhaust system. I am at the exhaust stage now and my theory is, if i can modify my rear bumper trim to have a custom twin centred exhaust like the cooper S, then when I get a cooper S I will have an exhaust for it and won't have to pay a lot of money for another custom made stainless exhaust. Hold up before you call me thick because of the mid section not being like a cooper S ! My dad had the old minis for years and tuned the life out of them. The first thing he always did was 3-1 manifold and removed the cat back,have a straight centre section from the cat to an exhaust centred in the middle of the car, his reason was that the gases escape quicker as there are no bends in the centre section. If I could have a straight centre section from the cat to a twin upswept backbox in the middle of the car, could this fit a cooper S? I haven't been able with the beautiful weather in NI recently to jack her up and have a look underneath. I woud have to have attachments welded on for the new centred back box and perhaps the centre section. The plastic trim on the bottom of the rear bumper would have to be modified not to look like a 3 year old has been let loose with power tools. Probably a very random question for yous but hopefully someone has attempted it before !
Cheers!!

The lower black plastic trim on the Mini One/Cooper rear bumper can be unclipped and swapped with the exhaust centre exit plastic trim from the Cooper S, or you can swap the complete bumper if you prefer.

As well as an aftermarket centre exit exhaust in classic Mini style, a Cooper S exhaust can be fitted to the Mini One complete or you can convert it to 'One Ball' as detailed here:

That's excellent! You've made life easier ! I'll just swop the plastic trim and depending how much powerflow quote for an upswept version of the quicksilver 'one-ball' either go for it or the quicksilver!
Many thanks!!
