When will you get the Tachometer covers in checkered flag for the countryman? Please advise.......
Just purchased the Black "slat" Grill to replace the standard chrome slat grill on my R56, I installed it with the original chrome trim pieces, looks fantastic for $100. Not knowing what I was doing at first and it still only took 10 mins. to install.
I bought these thinking that they might be cheaply made, but I was really surprised. Instead, I read on the box that they were made in Germany; hence, the reason for the high quality. If you buy these wheel center caps, you will not be disappointed. They are very high-quality.

Synopsis: Reduces inlet air temperatures creating a cooler, denser air charge - raising HP and torque!
The ALTA Cold Air Intake System for R52S and R53S MINIs pulls cold air from the ram-air duct in
the grille in addition to pulling it through the vent below the
windshield. The air-box seals to the hood and prevents under hood heat
from entering the intake airstream. This keeps the filter surrounded by a
fresh air bath. Thus reducing inlet air temperatures creating a cooler,
denser air charge raising HP, and torque. Read more below to learn
COLD AIR BOX: The ALTA Cold Air Box is formed from laser cut
aluminum sheet metal then CNC bent to perfection. Then finished in a
rich black texture powercoating for long term protection and an O.E.M.
look. Our airbox seals to the underside of the hood preventing under
hood heat from entering the intake airstream.
SOUND: With an ALTA intake system, your car will make a throaty, deep
tone on throttle that is undeniably modified. You will be able to hear
your supercharger whining. Even the stock one.
FOAM FILTER: The Alta/UNI high-flow foam filter reduces intake
restriction and increases the surface area from which the engine can
ingest clean air. Unlike cotton and gauze type filters, foam filters
allow for multi-layer filtration. The ALTA Performance foam-based filter
will trap dirt within the filter at many different levels. This allows
for better particulate restriction and will not reduce HP as the filter
INTAKE TUBE: The ALTA silicone inlet hose connects the air box to
the throttle body. With a mirror smooth finish inside and out, the
silicone hose promotes increased air velocity traveling to the engine.
Unlike the corrugated and ribbed factory inlet hose, turbulence is
eliminated. Additionally, the ALTA inlet hose has a larger inside diameter
to support the needs of your supercharger at all boost levels.
POWER: Thanks to the uniquely designed air-box and smooth black
silicone inlet hose the ALTA Cold Air Intake has proven a 10-12 WHP
gain many many times over.
