My 2007 R56 Cooper S

Recommended Posts

Not had my Cooper S that long. But have been modifying my Son's R50 Cooper over the last 2 years with him. My plans for my Cooper S are to modify it and not keep it standard-got some parts and bits already. It has quite a few BMW options added from new.

First mod/change was to have the rear windows re-tinted from 30% to 5%. Also had twin panoramic roof tinted 5%, did'nt like the clear glass. Was like a greenhouse with sun coming through.

Was'nt sure if it was an aftermarket spoiler at first, due to not seeing one on another Cooper S. Seen one for sale and thought it must be genuine afterall.

Got a couple of silicone hoses, sports de-cat downpipe (getting fitted in 2 weeks), will be de-chromed next Friday (gloss black), spoken to company about a remap, uprated intercooler being sourced soon. Uprated brakes to be sorted too. Thats for now :D

That's the aero spoiler, quite like it tbh mainly because it's so rare to see them. Good to see the stickers arrived [emoji5]

Is it a JCW spoiler as a add-on/upgrade? Or just a optional Aero spoiler? I much prefer my spoiler :D Stickers were fitted within an hour of the postman delivering them :good:

Interior has a few added options off the MINI list. Will be doing some de-chroming in here too haha. Would like to change the front lounge seats too at some point.

Needed a new boot handle/release due to mine not working. Replacement looks better I think

While I was in the mood for swapping bits, I started the de-chroming process. Set the ball rolling ( took about all of 1 minute max either side )

Will be sourcing some LED side repeater bulbs of some sort to carry on the de-tangoing :D

Thanks :good: In talks with the company I got it from for a few other bits being hydro dipped in carbon :D Hate it when I get on the slippery slope of modifying :roll::blum3:

I plugged my code reader in an found no codes, none pending. I've got a new fuel filter so will be changing that at the weekend. Will start with that and see how it goes. I'm hoping it's not the fuel pump (£350 :o )
