I am extremely addicted to this store and have it saved on my favorites page on my browser. I've ordered many things here - I'll shop around and place my order and the following day I am back buying more stuff - it's better than shopping for shoes! This store has great customer service and fast delivery! I love making my Mini - PRETTY!! Thank you Out Motoring!!
Item showed up fast, and is super easy to install. Looks great.
I have purchased your stage 1 speed upgrade and the results are amazing.
Next I plan to add the header & exhaust. Also the brake upgrade.
Thank you for your research and advice.
I think it would be helpful if you also added a suspension replacement/upgrade option like your speed upgrades.
I am a pretty much amateur with all the products available, and as an owner of a 2008 convertible S will be needing to replace these components soon.
Please provide upgrade options.
Yes, silicone hoses are better than stardard rubber hoses.

Synopsis: Get silicone radiator hoses when you need to replace stock hoses.
A customer just called and asked about getting replacement factory radiator hoses for his 2003 MINI Cooper S. While we can get any OEM factory part that MINI offers there are often good reasons NOT to buy OEM parts. In the case of interior cabin filters, spark plugs, plug wires, exhausts, suspension components, radiator hoses and a BUNCH of other items it just doesn't make sense to buy OEM parts. As is common with many aftermarket parts, you can upgrade a worn out factory part to a better quality and longer lasting part for the same or less money. With radiator hoses it's a wash in price but at the end of the day the silicone is a better option because it will outlast the lower quality OEM rubber replacement hoses by a longshot. Another thing to consider is that the kit we offer has multiples hoses to replace the most common hoses to fail. Save yourself some time and tons of hassle by just replacing a bunch of the radiator hoses at once. It will save another trip to the shop with the same labor charge as well another round of radiator fluid (which is quite expensive). Select from Red, Blue or Black to match or contrast your MINI!
