Hi all, thought I would introduce myself
My name is Heath and I am from Burton on Trent in the UK
I have a 2003 R53 cooper S which I have owned for a year now. I do most of my own mechanical work and have done a few mods to the mini already
17% pulley
Orranje air box
Fletcher cat back exhaust
GRS intercooler
Lightened crankshaft pulley
VGS mod
Dyno'd a couple of weeks ago at Lohen at 217.1bhp (they said this was one of the highest they had seen with my mods, that made me happy

When I bought the car it had silver wheels and no stripes, as I like the look of stripes on minis I fitted some and then did the wheels white

I did want to lower it but I have fitted a towbar from minidomore USA and the ball height for my trailer is spot on so if I lower it the towbar will sit too low so for now it is staying on standard suspension

My wife also owns a mini one which she has had for 4 years and still loves it
I have good mechanical knowledge & hope to be of help to other members

Cheers
