These camber plates are very well built structurally, improved the handling of the car dramatically, but IE built this unit around a very low quality bearing. By increasing the camber in the way that this unit does, it puts more load on the bearing and within only a couple months of installing it, the bearing becomes noisy, than gets sloppy, and than you car sounds like your front end is going to fall off on mild bumps. We installed these fixed camber plates following the instructions to the letter and within a few months, every set had to come off the cars they were on.
If you don't mind destroying the OEM shifter boot then this thing is a snap (literally and figuratively) to install. You won't need to disassemble the center console. I just broke it off with a screwdriver. The new well pops right in with no tools. Couldn't be simpler.
Like its base model counterpart, the R53 S is a two door MINI with a rear hatch and front and rear seats. The name Cooper S is used for the sportier version of the base model Gen 1 MINI, which in turn comes from the involvement of John Cooper and the Cooper Car Company. The Cooper heritage was further emphasized with the John Cooper Works (JCW) range of tuning options that are available with the MINI.
