    A quick search on the Googles brought this up. I think it looks smart as Red with White 😏 Oh am I? We'll have to see about that

    It would depend on what it would be used for. GP1 if it was locked away in the garage and forgotten about, ready to sell in 10 years time. GP2 for the odd weekend blast. Can’t really comment on the GP3 as I’m yet to drive one (as is most people). Regardless of generation though, although they’re made to be drivers cars, I’d feel guilty about adding miles to it. Stick some decent coilovers on a R56 JCW and I’d imagine you’re 80% there driveability wise.

    Right folks, last minute I know. Who fancies joining us for a run out on Sunday Morning ? We will meet at McDonalds Metro Centre and aim to leave there for 9:30 so probably meet for 9. from there we will follow a route of my choice (probably up into the Wear valley and probably into Northumberland for lunchtime/early afternoon (goodness knows just depends on the weather and general chat time). We will end up somewhere for Sunday Lunch. This is the latter part of Si's stag weekend so will depend on current health status following the previous days antics as to how far we go. Please edge on the side of caution and arrive with a full tank of fuel. Si Ben Lewis Thomas Steven Andy (probably) Ian

    Is the ‘Steven’ on the list me? if not then I’m there with bells on...and in either an Audi or and Abarth!

    The Newcastle one (Westerhope). They're a sponsor of us and Johnny will look after you 👍🏻 I've used them a few times now and they always do a great job. I'm actually dropping some alloys off there today to have them refurbed

    I’d feel guilty even modifying one, as I have a habit of not leaving things alone. thanks @lewismason1310 for the comment 👍🏻

    GEEK MODE: So...ive done some digging and it does seem pretty common to be the ELV, the steering lock. If the car has battery issues and various other factors, then there is an internal counter within the CAS Control unit that can MAX out its tries to fix itself. usually when it maxes out it fully shuts itself down, meaning ££££ to repair. Ive done some background work (as well as reinstalling INPA, NCSDummy, MCSExpert, WinKFP, and more importantly Tool32 which can clear this counter and im hoping will allow me to start the car to get it home to do more checks. Thats a massive priority for me! Some more digging around in an old readout i have of my MINIs own CAS ECU is the mention of more ELV values, so i might have a tinker around and see if I can cancel out this option for good to prevent me having this issue again. Im also told that MINIs after 2008 dont have this system, so lucky you lot with MINIs after this date haha

    Thanks guys, I’m going to pop along to the BTG open day and have a chat with them. I’ve heard Lohen are a popular choice, might be worth a look. I’m not after crazy power, just a few more ponies 🐎 but not enough to compromise reliably.
  21. 2 points
    As @Mr Watton says the Lohen packs do exactly what they say on the tin and are tried and tested. We've both pretty much got stage 2 hardware so we're planning on hopefully having a look down next year to see what power we're producing and to get the cars mapped. If you're looking for a custom setup and map then 200bhp could most likely be achieved without any real mods. But a better air filter, spark plugs and a better flowing exhaust wouldn't go a miss (and would sound so much better) I've heard good things about BTG Performance and they're probably spot on for the level of tuning you're looking at. I know that Abarth Club North East get a lot of cars done there and @j13_wtt and @MattyH92 had theirs mapped there too. So they could give a much better account of them than I can. Let us know how you get on!

    @Mr Watton depends who's driving it as to how quick it dies 😉

    @Kai2k exactly, be plenty of MINIs blasting round this one, including mine! Bets on how quick my engine dies hey ?? haha

    Aldi are selling a code reader for £16.99. It’s done the job on my F56. It’s a bargain to keep in the glove box for emergency’s if needed. Modified cars these are a must have. it cleared faults I had no problem.

    You're a colour pusher 😂 This whole thing about cleaning them all the time does make me want to reconsider 😂 I'm just not that anal considering the state they are in atm.

    haha dont you know ! Its quite a pain to keep cleaning white, especially if you are like me that likes to clean them inside out

    There are some lovely little accents that make this desirable but the price tag is just too much. I like the pattern on the dash and has me thinking of ideas for the my R56

    As we have discussed, you have more experience in the coding and OBD fault diagnosis but I'm intrigued why the CAS is showing a different mileage. I'd be inclined to reset both front speed sensors again to see if they both come back to "0"

    GP2 for me. I'm a massive R56 fanboy anyway but I think the GP2 looks the most natural, like it's meant to be that way. For me the GP1 just doesn't look quite right, almost like it's forced? And I can't get away with the spoiler and arches on the GP3. No denying that all three are very capable though

    @f56_dan couldn’t agree more. Really need to see those arches in the flesh.

    Hi, Just joined the forum after a few years in the Facebook group. I have a 2008 R56 Cooper S with the JCW aero kit. I am looking to get a remap to push the power up to just over 200bhp. I was initially interested in the MINI JCW tuning kit but as the kit is no longer available I’m stuck for options. As a MINI technician, I know the reputation the N14 has is not undeserved. That’s why I want small gains from a safe, reputable tuning company. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!

    Seeing as my non-Mini(thanks Si😢) is in the body shop til whenever, I wasn’t fancying rocking up in a Jaguar XF diesel but my son has said I might be able to use his Abarth! So I might just be coming after all! Plus it’ll be funny coz Abarth North East are there too but I’ll be hanging with the Minis😈

    Here is the new calendar for the MINI Challenge season of 2020. I know John Moulding is a fan of this, as well as I, and especially now they are supporting the BTCC season it should be pretty epic ! Would be great to do a few of these events for 2020, even if its not as a club event, just friends supporting something cool would be ace To see more about MINI Challenge, see this link > HERE < All the dates below have been added to the FULL ON MINIs event calendar.

    Welcome Anthony, may I say thank you again for another picture that you took of my car has ended up in Performance Mini. This time with me stood beside it. I do like the idea of an All-4 but wish they did it in a hatch.
