Hi guys, I need some special help about remaping my MCS.. The thing is that car was already tuned when it had 15% pulley installed, but I have gone with the original one and have been getting code p0107 since then and I can’t get rid of it. I assume it is because the values for map sensor were...

I recently brought a Mini R53 (2004) as a little fixer-upper project and straight away I realised that the central locking system wasn't working correctly. It locks from the button inside, so I'm hoping it's just an issue with the key. It won't lock unless I manually put the key in...
I bought my Mini about 6 months ago and I love it. Have had a couple of issues so far (will get to that in a different post) but it’s just had a service two days ago, oil and filter change, the works. When I start the car the light isn’t on but after driving for a bit today I was slowing down to...
I'm on the hunt for a standard supercharger pulley - there must be loads in the back of garages out there but nothing on the 'bay.
If anyone could let me have one after their reduced diameter pulley has been fitted I'd be grateful.
If you're in Warwickshire, even better!
So in my madness after selling my Original R53 a few years ago, I have gone and got an another one.
So looking for some mods, I am after a top brace if anyone has a good quality one?
What do you have please?
My 2002 R53 had a cracked cylinder head. I replaced the head and gasket. The original cam sprocket does not fit nicely on the new cam that came with the new head. I bought a new cam sprocket but this doesn't fit either. Does anyone have suggestions on how to make it fit? I thought about heating...

Here's the list of basic mods I have in mind:
15% pulley reduction for the...
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...

I appreciate any input on this one.
I have a flat spot on acceleration, just pulling away in first, a big dip then when it gets past it it goes much better. I have also noticed up around the 4000rpm range it's a bit stuttery when accelerating.

Recently became the new owner of a fantastically-kept R53 MCS in Electric Blue. This is my first MINI and I can already see what the fuss is all about!
All of my previous cars have been slow, boring hatchbacks or commuter cars, so this is also my first "performance" car. Who knew that...
Hi everyone nee to the forum and also new to the mini world. I got an 03 s back in October that needed a clutch, and while I was at it took care of quite a few other bits along the way. I did all my work myself with lots of forum and YouTube help, keep in mind I’ve never done anything like this...
