Hi new Mini owner here


As the title says, I have just brought my first ever mini, its a 2006 Mini Cooper S "Park Lane", 6 sp Manual, R50, sitting on JCW 18 inch mags with 215/40 R18 run flat tires and 120 000 km on the clock.

What can I say great little car and I think I am a mini convert after a week however since reading these forums, I have noticed a couple of issues that were missed by the mechanics pre puchase inspection.

Fist issue is the common problem of the top engine mount, its blown (New one on its way a Vibra Technics Upper Motor Mount).

Second Issue is around what appears to be slight mushrooming of one of the strut towers (Strut defender/brace ordered as well). Will look at what needs to be done when they get here.

As for future stuff, Suspension (looking a Megan Racing EZ Street coilovers), DDM Works Gen 1 Cold Air Intake, 15% overdrive pulley, colder plugs, upgrade inigition system and exaust. That will do.... oh need a Bluetooth mod as well.... hi flow intercooler....shift light...
