    Thought I'd share my experience of DIY key repair and adding a spare key. My R53 came with one key with the common broken rubber and it didn't remote lock/unlock. 1. I bought a cheap replacement fob off ebay. Quality was OK for price and swapping the transponder chip and remote board over was...

    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...

    Hi, 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?

    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...

    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?

The mileage display since has gotten progressively...
