Hi! New member and owner of a 2003 Mini Cooper S. Car is in pretty good condition but has a few spots of rust. We are changing the tailgate and having a bit of difficulty with the replacement we have bought.
Is the tailgate for an R50 exactly the same shape as that of an R53? We were under...
I saw this video comparing most Mini Cooper exhaust but still cannot decide.
Any tips on the best Mini Cooper exhaust? hp? sound?
I would appreciate hearing from those that already upgraded their exhaust.
I'm looking for a bit of advise surrounding a potential exhaust leak.
Bare with me if this is an obvious problem, this is my first car and I'm trying to learn how to fix problems within my abilities :)
Loud noise when accelerating in low gears, but not while idling or coasting without...
The key fobs were dead when I got the car so I replaced the rechargeable batteries. All was well for a couple of weeks but they died again. I know the batteries were in good condition and I soldered them in myself. I have replaced them again and the same has happened, as expected. I regularly do...
I’m a little late introducing myself having been a member since 2013 but better late than never! I’ve used the information on the forums a lot over the years so thank you all for your contributions.
Sadly I no longer own a Mini but I’d love to be reunited with my 2005 Mini Cooper R50...
I have recently bought a 2010 Mini One and i want to make it look generally a bit nicer in terms of the exterior and I was thinking of possibly putting a cooper s style bumper/bonnet on it.
Is this actually possible to do? And would the parts fit?
Hi after a bit of advice. I'm looking to get into track days on a budget of 1k for a car iv been looking into a cooper 1.6 r50 114 bph. Was wondering what they like to drive and if its even good enough for a track car. Or should I just go for something like a mx5? I'm not botherd about it being...
I'm new here so apologies if this isn't in the right forum!
I have a problem with my girlfriend's 2005 R52 Cooper Convertible where the passenger's windows (both front and rear) won't go back up.
This has happened after the alternator recently failed and started charging the battery...
Hey everyone, with a heavy heart my wife and I are having to consider the possibility that we need to let our van go. The timing chain went at the back end of last year, and I haven't been able to scrape together the cash to get it sorted.
I've looked at the options for refurb engines, but with...
Hopefully a quick and simple one - but I'm struggling to find the relevant information online and hoping you can help!
We're currently enjoying a 2017 Countryman, which we bought Used from a mini dealer - at the time it didn't come with a floor panel for the boot - so we are...
I’ve decided to sell my Mini Cooper with electric sunroof. Is this worth selling for parts/scrap instead of fixing the ABS myself. Has a number of other gremlins due to age. Who would be interested in buying in this condition?
I’m looking to buy an r56 in the next few weeks. The owner of the one I’m looking at sent me these codes:

302E - zero gear sensor
I was wondering if anyone could translate for me...are these anything...
Hi all, new here so uncertain if i'm posting this in the right place - I bought my 2001 Mini Cooper in 2018, it was at around 115000 miles when bought and there was a slight glitch in the display but nothing too drastic and was still readable. The mileage display since has gotten progressively...
I know there have been several threads on this before but it seems we've tried everything and hit a dead end. The roof on my 06 R52 Cooper S won't go down - the switches in the boot are pressed and I know the motor works from testing it but the switch does nothing when pressed, not even...

I have just purchased a '15 F56 1.5T 3 cyl with a manual trasmission.
Looking to add more power I came across this 2 options: Burger Motorsports JB4 and Dinan's dinantronics elite.
I really don't know which is a better option. Also it's important to have into consideration that in the...
