2005 MCS R53 Facelift in Dark Silver
1320 Mini 17% pulley
GRS motorsport intercooler
Stealth airbox with K&N
AP 4 pot front brakes
Super Flex front wishbone bushes
Vibratechnics engine mount
Powerflex gearbox mount
Lower chassis brace
I don't suppose anyone knows the volume/dB reading of the standard MCS exhaust.
This would be super useful as a trackday at thruxton is fast approaching 😁 and we are having to swap on a standard system as our current aftermarket system is far too loud.
Any help is much appreciated
I've been kicking around on and off with Mini’s and BMW’s for a while, but finally taken the next step to post a note to say hello - I don't spend a lot of time around computers.

Would you Mini-lovers kindly offer some insight?
I pulled my engine and trans (of course) to freshen the little guy up after 90K of wear and tear. I looked at my sales document and sure enough I ordered the car new with an LSD. But does it really have an LSD? I wasn't sure as the car drives...
I've had my R53 for about two weeks now so sorry in advance for not knowing anything.
Yesterday I noticed the left muffler is hanging low so I checked and it's being held on with zip ties as the upper hanger is non existent... So I check online to see how much that part was, cheapest I could...
Recently I bought a Mini Cooper S 2011, when I bought it, it seemed in very good condition.
The engine sounded good, the car felt good too and the equipment level also was the Chilli and Media Pack.
The service history, MOT and minor repairs all checked out however, I went on a test drive and...

Evening all I've been trawling the internet after deciding it's about time I change my plugs. I've decided after compiling a list as long as my arm of planned mods I might as well shift to iridium plugs one step colder now. Only problem being NGK don't seem to offer plugs for the n18 engine just...
Thought it was about time I introduced myself... I'm 25 and from the North East. First found the forum when I was looking at getting a MINI. 2 months ago I bought an Astro Black MINI Cooper with Polar Beige interior, loved it for a couple of weeks and then realised it just wasn't...
Posted this on 'another forum' but not had massive response, so thought might try here too as seems a more popular site...
Due to a change in circumstances I am considering buying a Mini Cooper S.

Well, after some thinking and a few mods I've started modifying my '06 JCW R53.
Big mods started some weeks ago when I ordered the 4-2-1 with 100 cells cat to Mini Motorsport UK. I also got the 225hp remap soon to fit a camshaft. Hope to get after that around 235-240hp.
Dry battery's been...
