Could anyone advice me as to where can I get parts such as air intakes and exhaust from? Like is there any shops in the area that retails Mini accessories. I much rather buy from a shop as opposed to ebay... hope someone could show me some directions - cheers!
If you want a JCW kit, find your local dealer. Otherwise, I'd check out a store called Eurobahn. The website is www.eurobahn.us (maybe no www). They are doing all sorts of tuning stuff, and I think they're based somewhere in the San Fernando Valley.
Otherwise, look for the exhaust you want on the manufacturer's site (like skunk2.com, or borla) and then find the local retailers, who will likely also do installation (unless you want to do it yourself, which seems pretty easy based on posts I've read here).
Thanks mate... Ya know where i can Remus exhaust for the MINI cause where i am at, skunk ain't street legal.
I will be heading up to the states for holiday in Nov and am looking for accessories such as spark plug cables and intakes for my car - things that are easy to carry and install. U have any idea where i can get 'em? Thanks a million!
Don't forget about Moss Mini in the Santa Barbara area. Great people to deal with and lots of stuff like what you are looking for. If you're going to SF, it's right on the way and really easy to get to from highway 101. PM me if you want directions.
