I've ordered from Outmotoring several times now. They are a model of customer service. Great website, great products, quick shipping. I will order everything for my MINI from Outmotoring from now on!
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!
I have 2009 JCW (R56) and have done a lot of work on it...and unfortunately it needs a lot of work as a cost for the fun.
I am local to Outmotoring and I am very thankful they are so responsive. They can often get parts same day and the prices are very competitive to the big online retailers and ebay. They have gotten me out of a jam more than once...and I can return parts that I did not need.
I have visited them numerous times and they have a nice showroom and top-notch operation. Very friendly and knowledgeable.
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.
