Ok guys & Girls....

I have a metalic blue MCS 2003 -

I hate the way it looks, especially the black side skirts, also the front bumper & bonnet does need a bit of a spray & touch up after a few years of motoring-
My car cannot have rear AERO bumper because of exhaust exit pipe locations being at the side-

I particulartly dont like the black side skirts...

Anyway heres my 2 options that are price up-

1) Buy AERO kit ( EXC rear bumper) & have it fitted, additional spray on bonnet as well, AERO Grills-
£1185 from Mini sport
With this option I sell the Porsche brakes & Alloys back to JCW brakes & Standard alloys-
Estimated profit-£700
total outlay £485

With this then- Mini with Aero kit but standard alloys-




2) Purchase Side skirts of Ebay already sprayed- £350 Purchase new alloys because I dont like them ( £575 hopefully ) , get Front bumper & Bonet just sprayed £250 , including that fitment of AERO Grills-£100-

£1275 Spread over-

With this option I sell my current alloys ~ 300/350
With this then Mini with Standard front end ( with AERO grills) but sides have decent alloys & AERO Side skirts & I keep the Brakes.....
total outlay ~ £975

What do PPL think??

you got any pictures of your S as it is now?

What exhaust have you got so you can't put the aero rear bumper on?

this is a modified Cooper Aero rear bumper adapted to fit the twin exit blue flame exhaust on a Cooper S...

That looks nice- Although im not sure mine are in that exact location-

Do they sell them off the shelf like that???
If so who do them??

heres a pic , its minus a few stickers now-

No I don't think they do.
It is a modified Cooper Aero rear bumper that mini sport did a few years ago


Finished the car today-

Work Completed

Aero Grill Set-
Aero Front Bumper-
Aero Side Skirts-
Full Front respray-
Kit Sprayed Satin Black-
Wing Mirror black-
Works Brakes added ( bye Porsche ones)
Works Alloys Fitted-
All engine mounts replaced-
All bottom joints superflexed-


With Compliments:

Chris at Woodmans for the alloys- top quality-
Think Mini for fitting the Arches & for the Superflex kit
Mod N Mini Sittingbourne for rushing around Saturday Morning with the alloys & brakes-
The challenge Exhaust may well be on the shopping list soon...
