    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. Heres some...
  5. Engine & Drivetrain
    For all those of you who spend time and money for your N/A R50, i have good news. The stock R50 injectors are very small, at 178cc/[email protected] bar (Bosch part number 0280155991). Anything more than a full exhaust system and intake, like a camshaft, will take them to 100% duty cycle at high rpm if...
  6. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hi All, I'm new to the MINI scene and am looking at making my 02 One a little better. I've done a few miles but am suprised to find that I am only getting 300 miles per tank of fuel. Is this normal or is my car running bad??? It feels OK to drive and has standard 15" alloys and no Mod's, yet...

  11. Suspension, Wheels & Brakes
    Ok heres the simple truth as on MT we are not having this forum filled up with the same Dammed thread every day Yes you can fit non run flats to mini wheels, if the tyre place says no find one that will, they make more money on runflats this is why they try it on. You should tell your...
