My project

Finally got my side whip in order! Changed out a bunch of parts because the car was malfunctioning after an "aggressive" tune. After wiping the tune and re-programming the car back to stock all my issues are finally over. Did a base dyno pull to see where i stand before i try a new tuner.

Your All4 looks fantastic! Best wheels for the Countryman too! I have the same 18" turbo fan wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires, 225/45/18. I really didn't care for the stock 17" wheels & R/F's that came on the Countryman R60. Can't beat the optional 18" setup as far as I'm concerned.

Thank you! I have GT Radial 225-45-18 run flats on this one. I had a R56 and also a few R60's before this one and on the R56 I went from 17inch to 20inch,the other R60 I had 18's and upgraded to 20's but both of those cars i had normal types,not the runflats. The runflats give a harder/harsher ride quality but in my past experiences the big wheels without a spare tyre never work in your favor.

Interesting relocation of the overflow bottle! I am thinking an oil filter change will be a bit problematic?

Not at all.When I do an oil service I service the air filter one time. Just to un-jack the sensor and remove the intake.

custom air-box made from fiberglass. Traps cold air from behind the grill. Works well
