Hi I'm Renzo, and I own a 2013 Mini Cooper S R56. I was looking for some handling upgrades as I'm starting to race my car from time to time. As far as engine performance, my car actually has Evolve ECU remap, AEM CAI, 3" Catless DP, 2.5" catback exhaust and FMIC. I saw your WMW Suspension Package on your website and thought it was the handling pack I should go after. Moreover, I was thinking to get a Brake Kit as I have the stock ones now, maybe the wilwood is an option. Finally I wanted to look for a clutch upgrade. Anyways, I was wondering if you could give me some advice on what I should get according to my needs. I wasn't able to send you a PM, so I leave the message here. I await your comments and thank you in advance.
Whatssup Way, I have a 2013 Non-S cooper and I want to drop it. I live in NYC (-__-) roads can be a pain in the ass. I'm looking into coilovers that go low but durable enough for nyc but i really like the low look on mini's. ive been reading thru most if not all threads on coils and haven't gotten a great idea of which ones, i have somewhat of an idea but would like a better opinion. Also anything else that is needed when dropping the mini. thanks again
A few members recommended you to me. I have a MC07 Standard NON S Model, Automatic, approx 80K miles. The timing chain snapped causing severe internal damage to the entire motor. Mini dealership service department offered two options.
1. New motor for approx $8,000 plus labor
2. Refurbish the existing, costing about the same
I find these charges outrageous as the MINI is only 5 years old. Assuming the dealership is correct, MINI will not cover the damages to the motor as the milage accrued are higher than usual. Needless to say, this is very frustrating.
Can you offer any advice on how to handle the warranty, if any?
Can you suggest a price for a new motor or refurbished motor?
I would greatly appreciate any advice or information.
Thanks in advance.
Way, talked to you on the phone today about the pulley, (Rick from OC). Super pumped on all your insight! You run a great business, as an owner who took the time to fill in the "little guy!" Keep up the good work brother.
