SOOOOOOO scarce are the performance upgrades at the moment for our ones I thought we needed a place to post any upgrades that have been found. I thought it might also be useful to show the demand for one perfance upgrades to manufacturers so please also post your interest, i.e what you would like etc


I'll start;

The only one I know of is the K&N induction kit (however I'm looking for something a bit more subtle) but anyway heres the link;

And I would like to see;
A propper exhaust made for the one (like lohen/milltek's for the cooper)
Remap
Panel filter

Hi Rochie,

You are correct there is not a great deal for the MINI One out there yet as the cars are pretty new. We are trying to encourage manufacturers to try and come up with some more products.

Looking at the link that you have posted it is an induction kit for the Gen 1 MINI One/Cooper - so I do not think that it would fit your MINI.

We currently offer the K&N Apollo filter which will fit both the Cooper & the One:

K&N Apollo filter

Knowing K&N I'm sure that the panel filter will be available shortly. Remaps - I'm sure that there are many people out there already working on the remaps, but the ECU on the Gen 2 are a tough nut to crack.

Exhaust wise it is difficult to tell whether a One needs a different exhaust from the Cooper. Most likely if the exhaust fits both cars Milltek will not make a "different one to suit" a One. We are currently pushing them to make a manifold for the Cooper.

But as you say it is great to know what people are after and we will then pass this on to the manufacturers.
