Highly recommend seller. Received items quickly and in perfect condition. Just bought my first Mini and so glad I found a great site to purchase "extras" for it. Thanks.
I got this light for my R53 Cooper S and the plug in for the harness did not fit the harness in the car. I needed to modify the circuit board and change the wiring harness in my car so that it would fit.
I just said "GOODBYE" to Bitsy Marie, my 2006 Mini S Convertible. She will be missed. ????
But NOT FOR LONG! Because I just replaced 'ole Bitsy with a brand new MINI CONVERTIBLE S in the new color, "Melting Silver." (Bitsy was BRGreen & I put maroon bonnet stripes on her. I haven't named my new MINI yet, or gotten any accessories. Yet! This looks like a site where I'm gonna have some FUN!

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.
