Fit and finish were perfect. Mounted right up, and looks great.
Both of the front headlight trims came with one having the letter "A" and one having the letter "B" but does not instruct on which one is left and right side. Both pieces are almost identical and fit nearly the same on either headlight trim. I feel that there should be some sort of instruction on which one goes on the left or right side.
In this "internet age" we find ourselves searching for the best price we can find. All the while not thinking about the "value" of customer service. Is an extra dollar or two in your pocket worth bad service? The answer is no!
While Out Motoring offers competitive pricing, the one thing no other on-line vendor can provide is the amazing and excellent customer service provided by the Out Motoring Team.
Their responsiveness, professionalism, knowledge and ability to accommodate a customers needs are world class and second to none!
Good service DOES have "value" and it's worth paying for! So my advice is, before you waste time trying to find a better price elsewhere think about what it might cost you in the long run should you encounter a problem.
It's better to do business with a company like Out Motoring which is professional, customer focused AND offers competitive pricing.
Out Motoring has set the benchmark for all other on-line retailers who have forgotten the meaning of customer service.
Forge Blow Off Valve for the N14 engine in MINI Cooper R55S, R56S, R57S
Category:MINI Performance Parts Posted:07-30-2015 09:27 AM Views: 16621
Synopsis: This is the solution you've been looking for!
This Forge Blow Off Valve for MINI Cooper is engineered for the Peugeot / BMW Mini 1.6 Turbo engines, as
found in the Peugeot 207/307/308 GT Turbo and BMW Mini Cooper S Turbo
(FMDVR56A Blow Off Valve N14 Engines Cooper S 2007-10, JCW Cooper S
2007-2012) fitted with the N14 engines. This valve is recommended for
any vehicle where the boost pressure has been increased by an ECU
software upgrade and for unmodified vehicles operating in warmer
climates, as a solution to the many failures that have occurred.
The most common complaint on the OEM solenoid valve is a split
diaphragm preventing the valve from opening fully or not at all. This
doesn’t always result in a check engine light as the valve can still be
blown open by the boost pressure. We have seen many valves with this
problem. The other problem is that the diaphragm retaining ring is made from
very thin plastic that becomes brittle with heat cycles and eventually
fails. This prevents the diaphragm from sealing with the same problems
as mentioned above. This particular failure also results in the valve
falling apart upon removal from the turbo, though in extreme cases bits
of plastic can enter the turbo and destroy it.
Our alternative is a fully engineered solution offering significantly improved reliability. Our valve is piston based, with no
diaphragm to fail, and of all aluminium construction. The Forge Blow Off Valve for MINI Cooper replaces the
original unit with a pressure/vacuum-operated piston valve that still
retains the desirable OEM ECU control over valve actuation. The
valve has been proven on the VAG scene for many years. The spring is
interchangeable for different levels of boost, and the solenoid is plug
and play with the wiring harness which is included.
