New to Mini old to Bimmerfest.

Hey all. I just wanted to introduce myself into the mini forum of Bimmerfest. I have 2 bimmers currently and this will be my first mini cooper. I am taking delievery of a 2010 Mini cooper S on Monday and am really excited to becaome a part of the mini forums. I have a few pics of the car from the dealer and will have more when i get the car. Any ideas for mods as i am new to this with mini. The only mods i have planned so far are 20% tinted windows and a K and N air filter.

Thnaks everyone!!!!

Nice looking car.



Personally, I'd give the K&N a miss. You won't see any real performance improvement and there is the possibility of filter oil damage not being covered by warranty.

+1 on the K&N. There are plenty of reputable Mini aftermarket manufacturers out there, Alta, M7, etc...........

I like your Dark Silver with the painted trim from the aero kit. I'm jealous.
