Hi All, My names James, I'm 23 and have just purchased a 2006 Cooper s after getting rid of my old BMW 330ci.

I'm looking and modding a few bits so I'm hoping the forum can help with some info.

Hi James & Welcome to MINI2.
Congratulations by the way in getting a thumbnail up with your 1st post
{I tried the other day & it wouldnt let me do it by normal means}

What sort of mods you thinking about doing?

Cheers. Yeah can be a pain at times. I've been part of car forums for all my cars and it's always been hit and miss.

Mods wise I'm thinking a smaller supercharger pulley, CAI, exhaust etc. I would like to get 200+bhp.

I was looking at changing my head unit but with it having the HK sound system it looks like a bit of a pain so I'm looking at something like a dension unit. But I'm going to see how it goes. I'm going to have look around on here see what other people have done to get some ideas

Ive got the Lohen LCS1 kit -smaller pulley & Bluefin remap to give around 210bhp, but tbh dont think the bluefin really adds anything useful.
If youve got a fully working HK system I'd probably opt to keep it as is - HK amps are prone to going wrong & extremely expensive to fix - so think yourself lucky
