installed a notch scoop on my r53 i love the way it looks, adds a more aggressive look and its priced right.
Grill badges are adorable, you need a dog!!! or a Pit Bull head- NO ears chopped.
I had a bit of disappointment today when my new hitch arrived - it was not the correct model for my car.
In retrospect, I looked back at the ordering page and found that it was my mistake but I could see why. I searched for a hitch for a Mini-S R53 and it took me to a 1001 which is for a non-S R50. The model numbers for the hitches and the cars they match up with were at the very bottom of the page, which I didn't see when ordering. It would have been very helpful if the drop-down menu had not just the hitch model number (1003) but the car model as well (R50, R53...) to help avoid this confusion.
It cost me return shipping and another week or more of wait. Not fun.

Synopsis: Only buy factory oil filters for your MINI.
We've read numerous complaints from MINI owners that have taken their beloved MINI to the local oil change place and found out months later they used either the wrong filter OR a poor quality aftermarket filter. Driving thousands of miles driven with low quality or poor fitting oil filters are among the worst thing that can be be done to a MINI engine- particularly the Turbo models. Don't risk blowing your engine, turbo or any other critical part of your MINI's drivetrain by using substandard non oem oil filters. OutMotoring has been offering factory MINI oil filters since 2003 and have yet to get any complaints about fit, quality or performance. Do it right and only use OEM oil filters for your MINI Cooper, Clubman, Coupe, Convertible, Countryman, Roadster and Paceman! Available in 6 packs also!
