corohio1977: One of my H-sport springs in the rear snapped and tore out all my sensors and ruined a stainless steel brake line. Very rare for something like this to happen and it was obvious there was a defect in the metal where it snapped. I never did get in touch with Hsport (mainly because the springs were given to me by a friend) and eventually threw them out. Rather than fool around with it, i just went ahead and updated to BC racing coilovers.

I had the Hsports paired with Koni Yellows and like them alot (until that happened). I just wanted to go with the coilovers to have something lower and be able to adjust the compression/rebound in the rear alot easier. Everything else Hsport that I have (front and rear swaybars, rear lower control arms, and the camber plates which were on the Koni's that I sold) were top notch.

@ UKCoopeR: gotcha'.
@ Darkness: that sucks dude - hopefully no one was injured/no major damage. i'll probably stick w/them [H-Sport] once I get around to fooling w/the suspension.

Hoping to bring this thread back to life! Thinking about changing the grill on mine soon (M7? Aero? JCW?) and would love to see what other R50 owners have done to switch up the look of their Coopers.

Really digging your Mini. What is the make of that Carbon Fiber Hood? Also, what are the make/style of those rims? Remind me of the RSe07's that NM offer.

White slatted grille on CR/W?

I picked a grille and S spoiler up locally and the use for the spoiler is obvious, but the slatted grille is pepper white and will need a color change. I have the all chrome prefacelift and wonder if anybody has any pics of a cr/w with a white slatted grille?
