I recently had one of my fuel injectors replaced in my R56 Cooper D as it was leaking oil and eventually lost power.
Since replacing the injector, the car itself has been running fine and is back to full power, however, the car is emitting quite a lot of black smoke from the exhaust...
Hey all, recently got a p2270 code (see pic) and I'm wondering if this is more likely a dodgy sensor or something much worse like the timing chain?
The cars just passed 150000 miles and I have no clue if the timing chains been replaced as when i bought the car four to five years ago the garage...
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...

i currently own a 2013 paceman jcw i was wondering if a exhaust advertised for a countryman would fit?. I barely see any specfic exhuasts for the paceman and eveytime i ask for a recommendation i get sent countryman ones.
Has anyone fitted a jcw backbox to their Cooper s? Just wondering on noise difference, sounds, more pops and bangs? It’s for a 2013 R56. Also if anybody knows where to get one from that would be a massive help. Cheapest I’ve found new was on minigenuineparts for £450 but I’ve seen old posts on...
First of all I apologise if this has been answered a million times, I’ve read through most of them but still can’t figure out what the problem is. I’ve just bought a 2013 Cooper S and one of the main reasons was because of the pops and bangs, who doesn’t love that noise?! But mine doesn’t seem...
Hi to everyone.
I have my second mini cooper 2010 and this is very different car than first generation.
I would like to change exhaust and make suspension a bit stiffer, to make this car a bit more similar to my older Mini.
At the moment i am thinking to change exhaust, and i know there...
I've had a P00420 code thrown up by the car - an R56 Mini One 2007 (2/2) - and so I took it to the garage for an MOT to see exactly whats wrong. I was told I need a new cat and two new sensors. The car failed on emissions and the sheet is attached. With this info can anyone tell me...
