  1. Engine & Drivetrain
    Hiya, I've just bought a stop-gap 2002 Mini Cooper and as I expected, there are a few issues :sleeps: When setting off and driving slowly the car is very jerky and thuddy...(they're the best descriptive words I can find) it sounds as if it might stall too, so I have to give it a load of gas and...
  2. MINI Parts Wanted
    As title. Anybody? Looking to change my leather one for Alcantara. Anyone want to swap or sell me their Alcantara one? Edit: I don't need the airbag, just the wheel.
  3. Faults & Fixes
    So my power steering pump failed on my facelift 2005 R50, which is obviously less than 10 years, which I'm led to believe is their goodwill gesture limit regarding replacing parts. I can't remember off the top of my head as it was over a year ago but the bill was £600 give or take £100. After...
  4. Other Stuff
    Nardi Challenge with Black finish centre, two tone leather rim. It came on my MX5, it's in lovely and near perfect condition visually, except for a minor mark you can see on the grey section at around 7 o'clock on the wheel. It's near on perfect to the touch, the leather is not worn, the...

It mostly does it...

  7. Faults & Fixes
    As per the title really. At constant speed its completely fine but under hard acceleration i get vibration through the front end of the car , mainly steering wheel. Any ideas? I have a feeling after searching around online it could be a driveshaft problem.. Its worst in 2nd gear above 2000rpm...
  8. Interior
    Hi all, I'm looking to get a new JCW steering wheel for my R56. I normally prefer full leather but the leather/alcantara one looks very nice too. However, I'm worried about the leather/alcantara one wearing down very quickly. For those who have this steering wheel, what prompted you to go for...
