Hi all. New to here and to mini's well Bmw mini that is. Just got a cooper r50 and personally it's a bit slow and more so lacking in grunt until about 4K when it wakes up a bit. Yes I know I should have got a cooper s but that's life ha ha. Just after making it a little bit more interesting without spending a real fortune. I'm sure this isn't the first time this has been asked so I'm sure there's loads of ideas out there. I'm quite handy with a spanner so no worries there but not really looking at modifying the engine as want to keep it reliable for every day use. Cheers.
