Just wondering if the Works upgrade for the Mini Coop 'S' is worth the money - My mini is Fast & fun but it's got 70,000 miles on the clock and I think it's time for an upgrade.

Definately - the works upgrade really makes a difference the car sounds, handles and revs in a more sporty manner. What model U got?

Hi femstar really nice to have you along. It wasn't actually my car - I just moved a post over from the other forum so I guess a swap drive is out. I have an Audi A3 1.8T but I do like the BME mini a lot - especially since seeing them in the Italian Job II movie. Tell us a bit more about yours, have you done any mods other than the JCW? (I think that is a fairly comprehensive upgrade anyway!) What sort of fuel consumption do you get?
