Modified Mini Cooper
The time has come to sell my 2001 Mini Cooper, which has been finished off with a very few 'tasteful' modifications. I've owned the vehicle for about two months now but now it is time to part ways due to an genuine reason. Please find some more information below and don't...

I've just purchased a 59 reg Mini Cooper and the handling is not as great as my old Cooper S and this is somewhat disappointing! My last Mini had a LSD fitted and of course this made loads of difference so I'm thinking of getting one fitted to my current mini. I live on the Wirral so would be...
Up for sale is my Playmini Cat-Back Exhaust system which came off my 2006 Mini Cooper. The exhaust is in excellent condition, it was on the vehicle for less than 1000 miles and was just starting to get the run in properly, meaning the sound produced by the system was rather special. The...
Hey guys this is my build thread of my 2009 R56 Cooper.

LCI Cooper S front bumper...

Hey my name's Ethan. Been lurking on the forum quite a bit since I got this car.
She's an 01 justa bought back in October last year and since then I've managed to spend over £800 in nothing but repairs.
The car came with BBS LMS reps and since then, I have replaced the runflats with decent...
I am selling a front "JCW Aero Kit" bumper from a 2013 Mini Cooper S R56.
The bumper is in good condition with only a few storage marks, no scratches or major scuffs.
I bought it without realising that the 2013 one is a completely different style to my 2008 one.
Price: £120 + p&p (will get a...

Hello there people,

Just bought a Mini Cooper S 2005 under 2 weeks ago and currently loving it! I'm not a complete newbie as my brother has the same Cooper S on a 55 plate but has modded it quite a bit!
The only modding I've managed so far is number plates!
Heres a couple of pictures:
Passed my driving test last week after only 10 days of learning, so totally new to the mini scene! Got the mini back in September and it was a pretty standard cooper, no mods etc.
Had a few bits and bobs fitted,

Anti-lag exhaust from a subaru (long story...
