This customer purchased the item at our site.
Car: 2012 Mini Cooper Countryman S R60 All4 manual transmission. Overall, this was a very good purchase. I did notice a bit quicker response in regard to torque and acceleration. I feel like my gear transitions are smoother as well as the drive feeling smoother. I didn’t notice any increase in vibration like some people were concerned with on the regular Cooper S models. Out Motoring is a very professional company and is my go to for mini parts.

Advantages: Smoother ride, quicker acceleration/torque.

Disadvantages: Installation was not as easy as it was “supposed” to be (never is, right? Ha) There are two bolts that hold the torque arm into place. Easy to remove the torque arm. Easy to place the inserts in the torque arm. However, it was physically impossible to align the torque arm into place (where the front of torque arm aligns with mount)with the inserts in them. I spent two hours trying to pry its way into place. I decided to safely place a block of wood around the same surface area as the oil pan and placed a jack/wood block under the oil pan. Now most people would say that is a big no no. However, the oil pan in the N18 engine is a very strong dense metal construction and did not damage. I removed the top/center engine mount bolt and very carefully raised the engine high enough to fit the torque arm into place without damaging the turbo pipe or oil pan.

Details

For a small power plant, the MINI Cooper S produces significant power and torque. As a compromise, the OEM torque arm mount is set in rubber to reduce vibration and harmonics, however it is too pliable and sloppy for the performance minded motoring. NM’s Engine Torque Arm Mount Insert is made of polyurethane and reduces engine movement allowing for quicker and more direct transfer of power from the engine to the wheels. This is a fantastic product brought to you from Neuspeed which is market leader in Audi/VW and other import tuning since the mid 70's. The NM Engineering brand brings with it many years of solid experience in European tuning as well as top notch support. Finish: Black Product images are shown with O.E. torque arm which is not included in the kit. Red inserts are for display only and not available for sale.

The NM Engineering Torque Arm Insert is one of the many MINI Cooper Parts and Accessories that we carry and will fit the following MINI Cooper Models and Years:

Customers' comments

Every product I have ordered from OutMotoring has been shipped promptly and the quality has been superb. OutMotorings customer service has simply been outstanding. Extremely helpful with tracking down difficult to find parts and odds and ends needed for some installs that they didn't have listed, but got for me and had shipped directly to me. Their prices pretty much beat everyone else, but its the outstanding customer service that will keep me a loyal customer.
Daniel Sonder

I ordered a tow hook cover for my mini and it came carefully wrapped as to not get scratched. It fit perfectly! It also came the same week I ordered it!
Kelly
