#15 of 64 Alarm system
Jan 28, 2005 (6:26 pm)
Is there a MINI dealer-installed alarm? Has anyone bought one? How good is it (feature-wise)? Does it come with one of those 360 degree flashing LED on the rear view mirror ala all BMWs. Of all the MINIs I've seen on the road, I don't think I've seen one with any fhashing LED to indicate there is an alarm. It can't be that no one has an alarm. MINI owners must want to protect their rides! Even Hyundais have alarms!

Has anyone heard if any near future design changes to the the Mini include an AWD package?? If so, I will be the first in line to trade my Saab 9-2X Aero for one.

I'm new to this forum. My husband left his front floor mats at the car wash. I want to buy him some new ones but not the factory kind. I was thinking coco mats. Also, what do you think about after market arm rests? I

just bought my friend's 2003 cooper S,fully loaded with the John Cooper Works kit. This baby was ordered (one color)blue metallic with chrome mirrors & gaz cover & tinted windows.Now I'm looking at this street legal go-kart and I'm thinking spinner wheels!!! Is this possible in 17 inch. If not,will 18 inch fit with 4 lugs,should they be positive offset??? Is there a web site that will ship to Canada ??.many questions.hope to have a few responses.thanks in advance.

MINI wheel specs:
Bolt pattern = 4x100
Offset of +40 to +45
OPINION: Most MINI owners try to reduce wheel weight to improve handling and acceleration. Spinners have GOT to be heavy, probably too heavy for a MINI. I know I would laugh out loud at a MINI with spinners , but that's just me.
#20 of 64 Supercharge Me?
Sep 02, 2005 (5:33 pm)
Hey, I have an 05 Mini Cooper S, and am looking for a little more performance without having to modify my motor too much. I've heard that I may be able to turn up the pressure on the supercharger to get more boost, although I heard that the release valve may release the pressure before it actually gets to the motor. I was just curious to see if anyone had experimented with this and if it's worth investigating. Thanx.

Has any one out there have any experience with roof racks, factory or others, i.e., Yakima, Thule.
How is the factory rack installed?......drill permanent holes into the roof???
Would you recommend factory over after market???
Thanks in advance.

I have the tire insurance in my mini S, why do you feel it is no good.

I have a 04 Mini Cooper S and had the following changes done.
Changed SuperCharger Pulley
Changed AirFilter to an open one
Changed Exhaust system to Borla
I have little bit over 200 horses now. My work was done by HELIX Mini Sport.

Im not sure about all that with the valve thing, but I think your car is going to throw major faults. Look into a smaller diameter blower pulley.
