Details

After about 3-4 years of hard driving, you may find that the front end of your MINI is starting to feel a bit soggy. Some of that is from control arm bushings, motor mounts and overall wear and tear but the bulk of it is also due to chassis fatigue. While the upper strut towers are virtually a part of the firewall, it would seem odd that there would be much movement between the strut towers but there is.

Factory fresh MINIs don't tend to show this weakness, but over time it will creep in. Upper stress bars are a good thing not only for older MINIs but for newer MINIs to help keep the front end more stable, especially when the chassis twists going into to high speed turns, etc. This is one of the best upper stress bars we have seen, and it is super light and stiff. To top it off, the aluminum cross brace looks absolutely stunning. When installed, this will clear the stock airbox on the R50 and R52 Cooper and R52 and R53 Cooper S. It will likely fit over just about any aftermarket intake such as the Alta, etc if the two vertical metal walls are trimmed. Install is a breeze and can be done by just about any skilled person in 15-20 minutes using basic tools.

These RS Door Pulls are a great addition to my R53. Having a bit of a learning curve because it's a new way to open the door. The straps seem a bit long as well but I'm sure it's just because I'm used to the OEM Door handle. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to add a little race inspired style to a sporty little car.

Got my parcel in the mail today. Shipping was much faster than I anticipated and my hat makes me proud :) Needless to say, my evening is now booked, installing all my new treasures on my much-loved Benjamin. Thanks again!
