I've had a bit of an issue and am quite worried... I did an oil check the other week and there was no oil whatsoever on the dipstick (not too worried since I rarely drive the car), so I bought a 4 litre bottle of oil to fill it up.
Being rather clumsy and with little thought I just poured the...
I thought I started a thread on the reliability of the R56 but cannot find it (mod feel free to merge if you do find it) - basically I was wanting an update from you guys who have been running them for a few years now or who have bought older cars...
In short: How are they coping ?
Right I know Jayxx83 has done this And with a few texts I understand it's not a difficult mod to do and costing £20 from BMW seems good value, but has anyone else do this and can they do a step by step guide
This project was meant to be different from my half arsed attempts in the past. The saxo's and the r5gtt's that went before it always ran out of money and were sold on before I had a chance to finish them. I've almost hit a wall with this one already but the mods will continue coming as long as...
First post so please be nice :D
I've got a 06 Cooper (R50) but I have a small dilema. I've bought a set of genuine and complete Mini xenon headlights (The facelift ones with projectors):
I've followed the instructions given by "Scraggles" in this the below thread but my xenon low...
As a lot of you will recognise, this is Dave's JCW that i bought around christmas time. Thought it was time to introduce myself and make a thread. No mods yet as im still a student at uni (final year though..!) and need to keep it running on minimal cash over the next few months.

Hi, my name is David and this is my MINI R53 :)
First Track day
EBC Greenstuff Front
Motul RBF 600
Goodridge Braided Hose Kit
EBC Front Brake Discs Drilled and Grooved
Alta Intercooler Couplers
Seriously thinking about buying a R56 noe that there are serious tuning options available.
However is it worthwhile spending the extra $$$$ on getting a JCW or just get an S and whack a hybrid turbo on it?
If I do get one I plan of modding the shit out of the engine

Been a member on here now for a wee while but have been a silent watcher to whats been goin on never started any treads or posted anything so felt why not now ! So start with the basic I am 18 years old and bought my MINI (MILY) in March of last year, first car after 2 years hard...
This is the story of my beloved ANT-1 :)
I have always loved the new MINI but never thought that it could be my only car. In November 2009, I made a decision to sell my BMW 330d xDrive and thought that I could by something smaller and cheaper to drive, while I think which car would...
So what mods have you done in the last week? Thought it time someone started one of these, so tell everyone what you have been doing to your MINI this week. Anything counts, little or large.
Myself, I just finished fitting an auto-dimming mirror to my 03 MCS. It originally came from a cab, so...
If you have bought a set of tyres for your 2nd Gen MINI that you liked, and you would like to recommend that tyre to other Mini Torque members, then post up here and tell us all about it :).
It doesn't matter if it's a runflat tyre or a regular tyre ;), only that you liked them.
Just say what...
