General Information

Mini Cooper
Countryman S
Build a fast car as I can with stock internal to be driven daily.
This car has been daily driven since my last modification. Top speed, WOT and sudden accelerating are often done since speed limit in my country is not enforced.
Some custom modifications were done such as tube adapter for coilovers (using R60 Coiover won't lower the car this much with good ride and more shock strut travel).
Some radius cut and paint were done in order to lower this car without rubbing with only -1.00 camber rear and mild stiff setting, no more chewing tires with car sitting low. This car drives really good, comfortable, no rubbing at all, and been running around 35.000 kilometers so far with ZERO problem.

Hope my post can inspire some users here.

Very nice! I love the subtle but sleek look and the red accents inside and out really top it off! I admire your achievement and think you have done an amazing job. It turns a few heads giving some whiplash i will wager! Bravo!! How long did everything take to complete?

Fantastic! It took me three months to get an adequate high pressure fuel pump from Ebay. (I sent 3 back that would not build pressure) Got the car running great but once it warmed up, it would not start. The o-ring on the top of the fuel filter can was broke again! Then while taking it apart, I cracked the top of the can and had to buy a whole new one. Now she is running great, I put the new intercooler on. There is some difference. I am waiting to put the catless downpipe on for now, just enjoying the ride! I change the oil every month with Castrol 10-30 synthetic, and use premium gas 92 octane. I think I am getting about 25-30mpg, and she sounds fairly strong for over 135k

Beautiful! I have dialysis 3 days a week and leave my house at 4:30 AM,(no cops out) when I hit the hi-way I am usually doing 90 as I shift into 5th...and I am there and have to slow down to pull into the parking lot. I usually don't get much faster than 110.

Sorry for giving a dead post more life.
I know some people don’t like zombies posts.

I’ve scoured the internet and you’re the first owner of an r60 that has a decent looking hoodscoop. Most r60s either have a hoodscoop that looks like it belongs on a 2004 Subaru WRX, or just a vented hood. Can you tell me more about the brand, and install of that scoop!?
