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.
We are an overseas customer in Perth Western Australia and can only recommend both the service and the quality of products supplied through Out Motoring. My wife has just received her 2nd mini an electric blue F56 with black roof named "Fabian" dont ask me why but thats how they sell cars in Australia (all have names) We received several items recently and have been installed quickly and easily. Thanks for shipping overseas and look forward to buying parts and accessories to add to the looks of the car.Even my good lady wife was impressed
"Happy Wife Happy Life.

Synopsis: Upgrade your rotors the right away- and for less than OEM!
Usually a set of brake rotors will last about 65-80K miles on a MINI, however depending on how you drive, the type of driving and the type of brake pads you have you could see a LOT more or a LOT less life out of your rotors. Take your MINI to the track and you can burn through a set of rotors in a weekend- and 2 sets of pads. Drive like a little ole lady from Pasadena and you may get 70K miles...but I've lived in Pasadena and I know the roads are steeeeeep going up the mountain and going down requires constant feathering of the brakes to keep your speed down....so anyways. Bad analogy.
