  1. First Generation MINI Cooper
    I have recently received a 2005 MINI Cooper Base (r50) with only 40,000 miles. I’m fairly new to the field of moding cars and I’m eager to build and learn. I’m wondering if y’all think it’s worth putting my time and effort into this car seeing that it has a CVT which is known to be extremely...
  2. Second Generation Faults & Fixes
    Hello all, I posted a while back about my 07 Cooper who was revving by herself during cold starts with a lovely check engine light. Was told it was first the solenoids which were cleaned and then it was the potentially the timing chain (which I had replaced at MINI dealership last year) so was...

    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...

    When doing over 40 mph in my 2005 Mini Cooper 1.6 I hear a ttttttttt noise as if something is rubbering or catching on something. I'm not sure where the noise is exactly coming from.

    When I'm doing over 40 mph in my 2005 Mini Cooper 1.6 I hear a tttttttt noise like something is potentially catching on something. Sounds like it maybe coming from engine bay but not sure.

    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...

    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...
