Ish.

Still fun, not quite as fast as the R for pre-2020 models.

2020 gets a serious power bump.

I think all we know is 0-60 #s and the mini is like .1s behind. It should just be a "cooler" GoRf basically.


I think it's cooler because dat Mini swag

189hp and 3600lbs ? :disgust:
Had no idea they were that heavy.

I like the Clubman, especially the R55, but isn’t the Mini-ness essentially gone with a Countryman?
Always been a bit :disgust: about them.

Ordered a vent pod and boost tap this week as I’m going Fast and Furious. Turns out most boost gauges here are 52mm (2-1/16”) and my pod is for a 60mm gauge.
Autometer doesn’t even make 60mm ones.

Any recommendations?

That doesn’t look bad. My wheels have really thick spokes, they are like thickest spokes short of a monoblock. This is a nice change

I think chunky wheels suit your car's beefed up styling though. For example the more I look at these thin spokes wheels on your car the more I'm not sure about them.Image

Simply as a way of making sure the fragile N18 isn’t about to blow up.
Ideally I should get something to monitor oil pressure too.

Just got a used JB+ in the mail too for extra :burnout:

:scrooge:

I did some research on the one Max posted and seems to be your typical eBay poop that will act up after a few months.

HKS/Apexi have 60mm gauges but the backlight color is blue compared to the car’s red/amber.

I’ll just return the vent pod and buy a 52mm one together with a quality Autometer/VDO/whatever gauge.

I loved my p3 gauges in my GTI and Golf R.

They work and are unobtrusive.

Looks like anything OBD2 can read. I may be wrong though.
