  1. First Generation MINI Tuning
    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...

  4. First Generation MINI Cooper
    Hi everyone, 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...

    Hi all, 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! Thanks! Steve

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...

    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...
