    Hi everyone! I've just purchased my first Mini, a 2005 Mini Cooper R50 with chilli pack. I saw this car and completely fell in love and had bought it within 48 hours of dropping my old car off for a service and seeing it at the garage next door. I'm looking for a few ideas of what to do with it...

    Hi Guys, Names David. I'm a new R50 Coop owner. Had a little browse of the various mini forums and came to the conclusion most of the people on here know what they're talking about, at least compared to Mini2. Wanted a Mini all my life and finally I plumped for a 2003 R50 that had somehow, in...

    LHello, 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...
