Title: The MINI got some trick parts :)
Post by: 03Indigo on July 18, 2007, 12:23:06 PM
FINALLY got to install my Hotchkis adjustable camber plates, M7 strut tower plates, Megan Racing rear adjustable control arms, and a new Megan Racing cat back exhaust to replace my prototype Milltek.  The Milltek was not flanged, it was slip fittings and ring fastners....so I had a few rattles with it.  Now they are flanged, and it is a better fit, but I did not want to spend over $700 for the replacement :(.  The Megan is a bit louder, fully flanged, and polished stainless all the way back.  Looks purdy under there now :)

I have the 2Bennett ones for my S4, they are great, but they are also supposedly the best for my application. I just did a google and found that link and it looked good. Definitely take your time to research what is best for your application.

Be thankkful you have a MKIV, lots of stuff available.

adjustable camber plates are key in the lowered MINIs, as well as adjustable rear control arms.  The MINI was designed for progressive camber in the suspension, so the more it is loaded, the more camber you gain...dropping the car automatically gives you more camber...so I needed to correct for that for more even tire wear, an to make the car a bit less twitchy.

other things I have just ordered....

Craven Speed Super Stubby Antenna
Craven Speed Flex Pod
Craven Speed iPod Cradle
MINI OEM iPod interface to work with my OEM controls on the steering wheel
M7 Tuning Carbon Fibre Air Flow Shield
M7 Tuning Polished Aluminum Oil Catch Can
MinSpeed Blue 19mm Rear Sway Bar with Greasable Bushings and Retaining Rings
Chrome Spark Plug Boots
John Cooper Works Door Sill Plates

2 Chrome Under Hood Panels to cover the Brake System

Power Stearing Fan Shield
Chrome Side Grill for around the Jewel Side Markers
Forge Aluminum Header Tank

and some OEM pain in rattle cans to re-do my engine covers in OEM Indi Blue :)

I have the Ground Control Camber Plates, and I really like them, although I'm seeking a way to get even more camber.  The one thing that I really liked about the GC product is that it replaces the upper rubber mount with a hard mount.

more blue stuff, and white stuff, and fun stuff.  These shots are sans the blue air filter, battery box bottom, fuse panel cover, and the covers are not actually in place, this is just a test fit, but you get the idea.

LOL Aaron.

Betsy loves the Yin Yang over the billiard ball.  The Yin Yang is a bit smaller in diameter, more OEM size, but it is solid stainless steel, so it has a lot of mass to it, between that and the craven speed short shifter I installed a few weeks ago, I really like how it feels shifting.  Not totally positive, still a little soft, but I hate clunky and notchy anyway, so this is a perfect set up for my tastes.

The car drives great.  It's not often I drive a car and think, "There's really nothing else I'd change on it."  Jon's MINI is damn close to that, though.  The balance is great and brakes are just as good.  I told Jon the only thing I could imagine significantly improving the handling of it is some r-comps.  With as little as he drives it, I think some RA-1s would be a good summer tire for him.   ;D

Looking great, Jon!  Hey the garage is looking just as impressive.  We need a shot of that. 

One of my winter projects is to finish my garage.  I already have 3 bays and an epoxy floor, but I need to wire, insulate, drywall and mud mine, then I want to work on organization.  Where did you get your cabinets?  I have been researching them, but really like yours.

Where did you get your cabinets?  I have been researching them, but really like yours.

I got them from Lowes, and I painted them to match.  The original ones were from the old house, they were just the unpainted ones, wood/pack board look, and the new ones were white, so I sanded and painted those to match.

By taking my old cabinets from the old house, it saved me nearly $2K or more.  I have added 4 large vertical closet cabinets to either side of the garage, near the garage doors, those ran bout $150 for each one.

put in the SPC adjustable control arms today, removing the Megan Racing adjustables.  The SPC is about 2 times the size, and the bushings are sealed and pressed in.  Car is much quieter in the back now, not as much translated road noise, which is good, handling is the same :)

I also just ordered this :)...and my Vogtland coilovers go in tomorrow....

Nice Jon, the Mini is looking great! I need to get a ride in it one of these days. Also, Renee was so impressed we may add them to our list of cars to look at to replace the Passat. Of course finding one that are Auto seems to be a bit of a challenge.

Post by: 03Indigo on October 03, 2007, 11:36:30 AM
there are a ton of S models out there now that have automatic....they did not catch on until about 2 years ago...so more automatics will show up in the used market in a few years.
Title: Re: The MINI got some trick parts :)
Post by: 03Indigo on October 03, 2007, 12:27:37 PM
OK, got the suspension in. I am VERY pleased. The handling is exactly the same as the H-sports, but the back end is more responsive and predictable around hard corners....does not break away as freely, and is much easier to maintain through a corner. The dampers are where the difference is. Now that they are matched to the springs, as compared to the Hsports and stock base dampers...the car is smooth, non bouncy, and goes where you point it.

The system overall is quiet, no increase in noise over the stock dampers and Hsports. So, that makes me happy. Still hear the occasional camber plate noise, but not any more than before...and even then, the noises are very few and far between.

The front is at a perfect height right now, the back still needs to come down a 1/4" or so...but I am too tired to mess with it right now. The overall install took about 2 hours start to finish, and I also got my SPC rear control arms in...so a very productive few days.

Maybe tomorrow I will mess with the ride height a bit and snap some shots, but overall, I am as happy as could be with performance, handling, ride quality and lack of noise. It was nice to whip it around a bit today...the car just feels planted!!!!!

he does some for lambo's.  You can contact him and see what he says, but not sure how far he reaches out to the other markets.

Runs about $150 for a custom sphere, and about $100 for a custom cylinder.  He also makes them out of black and white derlyn (if that is how it is spelled)

Quick question for the mini crew. My freind has a mini s and says her car keeps eating oil filters and wanted me to ask you all what you were using. Thanks for the help.
As im an audi guy and told her uh dont know what to tell you.
Title: Re: The MINI got some trick parts :)
Post by: 03Indigo on November 01, 2007, 11:32:21 PM
I use the OEM BMW filters. The fit into the canister that you re-use, typical BMW style.  I use synthetic oil and change every 5K miles...even though MINI says you can go 10-15K on oil changes.

I would look into how often she changes her oil, where she is getting them changed, and what type of oil.

I have not heard of anyone else having a problem with oil filters outside of improperly installed ones.

here is a small progression of the different evolutions of the interior so far, I have just started the new winter project, black coach leather, black, blue and tan alcantara, and custom carbon fiber work.  No more ostrich.  I have all new parts so I don't have to destroy the old ones, so I will have 2 complete interiors when I am done, hehe.  I am really excited about this go around, taking what I learned last time and applying that to the materials and process this go around.  This morning I finished the steering wheel panels, and was really excited about them, so here it is.

IB4JR says "you have a sickness" ;)

Post by: 03Indigo on November 29, 2007, 03:10:47 PM
I liked the ostrich too, just the stripes on the doors, steering wheel and shift boot started to really bother me, as did the tan on the lower half of the dash.  So, since I am wanting to do it all over again, might as well try something new.

I should have stuck with my original thoughts, keep it simple, just black on the dash and doors, with tan in the door pockets.  No blue, no stripes on the steering wheel or shifter boot.

I would be happy to help with the Rover, that would be a fun project...something in Plaid :)

The sick thing is, I have ordered a sewing machine so I don't have to hand stitch all this stuff again, and I am really excited about getting a sewing machine.  How messed up is that? <bows head in shame>.

lol!
Looks awesome Jon, can't wait to see it!

Hehehe you are doing MORE to it???  It looks great Jon!  And thanks again for all the help (both you and Pat!), brakes seem to be working great.  The lights are better too, not flashed as much, and can see very well still :)

so glad to hear that Jonathan.  Anytime you need a hand on the car, let me know, I would be happy to help.
