Hi Aaron,I\'m just dropping you a line to say thank you for your awesome customer service. Frank arrived in the UK safe and sound yesterday with the auto sport module which I installed this morning. It was easy to wire up and works perfectly, I\'m thrilled with it.In the UK. I\'m a member of a couple of mini cooper forum\'s which I\'ve already posted the installation process on and will gladly give people your company details should they also wish to purchase a module from you. Once again thank you so much for making this a very pleasant and easy process from start to finish.
I just wanted to send you all a quick thank you. I was very confused by all the different possible option and changes throughout the years (thank you BMW for that BS) so I called in and spoke to Aaron. He took the time to explain things to me and pointed me in the right direction and best cost savings possible. Even gave me a discount code for the Forum that I belong to. Everything worked out great and I ordered all my parts right away. I can’t wait for them to arrive and get my car back in shape. I work in sales myself and just wanted to let you know that this was by far one of the best and easiest purchases I have made in a while and your people made it very easy. I will be recommending you to many others and will almost definitely be ordering again from you in the future.
Did a search online for a replacement dome light button for a 2004 mini copper s and was directed toward your site. I was, frankly, shocked by the price listed and wouldn’t be surprised if others had the same reaction, after viewing the price. After swing that outrageous price, for a dome light button, I may have to, seriously, reconsider buying anything from your sight, in light of the fact that I can purchase a, nearly, brand new one- although it’ll be used- for $25, with free shipping. Please, if you will, explain selling a button for $67. That’s, without shipping.
ANSWER from OutMotoring: Hi, yes, this is a insanely high price for such a small item, unfortunately production and other costs define the price as we have to purchase this though the MINI parts network and they sometimes have exceptionally high prices on some items.
This was a fairly difficult replacement. You remove the exhaust sensors, turbo heat shield and downpipe heat shield, then the downpipe itself, and finally another heat shield right against the engine block. This oil line isn't shaped like the one that comes out so pay attention to the routing path of the one you remove. Also this oil line has fittings on either end that have to be tightened once the bolts have been installed and you are happy with the hoses position. If you don't tighten then oil sprays everywhere...not that I'd know...and I certainly didn't do it twice. Tightening these fittings is kind of tricky, as you tighten then the preformed ends rotate out of position, you fight it from rotating out but will fail...I really hope these fittings don't break loose while I'm driving down the road, kind of a bad design.
Advantages: The part fits and solves the leaking turbo oil line
Disadvantages: No install instructions left me unaware of the hose end fittings so I got to disassemble the down pipe assembly 3 times...I hope they hold.
