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.
Bought, received, and installed. If you own a Mini Cooper... Bookmark this website. I purchase shocks for my hatchback and installed them in minutes.... MINUTES! Before I knew it they were here. I deliver pizzas and need my hatchback and it was so quick and easy. If you love your Mini like I do, this is the "Best Resource" website you can have. Owning your Mini is for the "Rich"... Love driving your Mini.... "It is a life changing experience". It is a feeling you never felt before, hard to explain... I love my girlfriend but my Mini takes me to places physically and emotionally is the only was to describe it. Mini is a "cliche"... It hold a HUGE part of my heart that can never be replaced.

Synopsis: Solve 3 problems with 1 device - Alta Adjustable Tensioner!
The OEM dampener is very well-known to cause lots of problems on your 2002-2006 MINI. The bushings wear out causing strange noises and dampener failure. When the dampener wears out, it causes instability in your your belt tension, premature belt failure, shortened life of bushings and tensioner spring, and slippage under full throttle. Also, the OEM dampener cannot protect your crank pulley and related parts from getting destroyed in the event a belt fails.
1) The ALTA Performance Tension Damper eliminates tensioner bounce and adds more tension than the OEM dampener, allowing better performance and response under extreme driving conditions.
2) When the serpentine belt fails, the OEM belt tensioner mechanism plunges into the crank pulley, destroying the tensioner and crank pulley. The adjustable ALTA Tensioner Stop simply replaces the original tensioner dampener solidly holding onto the tensioner arm preventing damage when the belt fails.
3) If your stock belt tensioner pulley is jumping around, it can cause enough damage that you have to buy the whole assembly ($250) to get a new pulley dampener. You can remove this problematic part, install the ALTA Performance Tension Damper, save yourself tons of money in repairs and never have to deal with this problem again!
