  1. I’m getting used to removing the bumper now so although it was quite a bit of work, it wasn’t too difficult. Thankfully. I’m just glad that it wasn’t expensive to fix (time is free at the moment) I would have loved to have seen the look on the pheasants face just before impact but that will have to be left to the imagination I’m afraid. @Mr Wattonwas the last to see the pheasant so goodness knows where it is now 🤷🏻‍♂️ All the best for the ‘21 @Kai2k

  2. I hate to admit this but I’ve only used the car once since the remap was done! I kept getting codes for the thermostat so it had a trip to the garage to have a new one fitted. I must admit, it was the quickest journey to and from the garage I’ve ever done and I had a massive grin on my face for both trips 😁 It’s a total transformation, @Kettlepot, I’ve never driven anything quite like it. Shares in Goodyear might be a good shout there 😅

  5. I’m not sure I know which bit you are referring to as being the “skirt” I removed the front grill to access the top bolts, then loosened the arch liner to separate the arch trim from the bumper trim, then took out the 3? Vertical torx screws underneath, with all of those removed I took the bolts out of the top and lifted the bumper off. oh, I did remove the undertray too just for ease more than anything else

  7. The rear subframe is now stripped down and it has been cleaned with a wire brush. I have also cleaned up underneath the car and around the battery box with a wire brush and covered it with rust converter ready for painting to protect it. I have also started to strip down the trailing arms ready to be cleaned and painted.

  8. Hello! I have a 66 F54 and I think I would like to extend the rear spoiler slightly to make the back end slightly more interesting. Can anyone recommend one that fits nicely. All of the examples I’ve found aren’t 100% clear that they fit my model and they’re not cheap. I’d like to get it right first time.

  10. On the whole I am not a Countryman fan (other than some of the heavily modded ones but there is something about this one that is likeable. I'd probably need to add another £5k for the air-ride, wheels and sound system 😂

  11. Warming Through ! I had the wife's car (BMW X1) booked in for some warranty work, it was booked for a waiting appointment but due to the recently moving into Tier 4 of the current lockdown measures the dealership were not allowing customers to wait on site. Needless to say I would have done things differently if I had been forewarned. And due to the rest of the hospitality trade being closed and any other non essential business, it was very hard for me to find somewhere warm to take shelter. The MINI dealership across the road didn't have any decent eye candy parked out

  18. We`ve made it! Stage 2 Complete Let me start off with a huge thank you to @Lohen They looked after us from start to finish and for this im very grateful. As always Frank was a pain in the ass. For those who dont know who frank is, Frank is my MINI. A full vehicle check was had which happens all the time before a map is applied to ensure the engine is up to the additional performance, this includes compression checks. Problem wise it started off with an issue with my Forge blow off valve. Because of the higher boost that the map would allow, the spring within the valve wasn't capa

  19. Been a while since the last update as I have been working o the garage fitting a new roof and panting the walls. Now that I have the garage the way I want it I can now start back on the r53. So a small update today I got the car jacked up on axle stands and I have removed the exhaust. Next job is to remove the rear subframe.
