Street parts off a track R53
Street parts off a track R53

Hi folks,

At the track this weekend both the flex joint on the header and the ac decided they were tired and called it quits. I am going the RMW long tube route and given it doesn’t have a cat, the car is going full time track mode. This means I will have a bunch of the interior etc for sale as I won’t be driving to the track anymore and will tow it. Car has 65k miles on it so stuff if pretty clean. It has the Panther Schwarz interior, Harmon Kardon sound system, xenon light, sunroof... it wasn't a track car at the start lol.

Parts I think folks might have interest in:
Passenger Seat (Driver seat won’t be pulled till winter but will be available)
Rear Seats
All weather floor mats
Amp, Speakers etc
Rear Seat Belts
Headliner
Interior Trim

Anything else you are interested in let me know, if it doesn’t need it to run on track it is fair game. Heck is someone wants the header to try and fix the flex joint you can even have that (once it is off).

Anything specific you are interested in let me know and I can send you a pic of that.

I will indeed be ditching it for a non-airbag wheel, I haven't figured out what adapter/wheels fit on the mini yet though so it might be a while, I can move that up the list if your need is urgent?

Too be honest I hadn't priced anything out yet, I didn't want to go through all that and find out nobody wanted it and end up chucking it in the attic lol

How does the below + shipping cost sound? that said... i am going to be in MI in late August if you are close to the border... i will be driving back through Indianapolis on my way back too...

Floormats - $50

Is that an armrest? - $50 Yes, it is the one with the lid that slides back (https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/sho...diagId=03_0482). I will have to research how to remove it as it came on the car... and the realoem pic looks complicated haha

Parking brake and shifter boots - I have redline boots on it not the OE ones, but I am pretty sure I have the OE ones somewhere, I think the parking brake one has a small tear though which is why I got the redline ones. I do want something to keep the heat/dust etc out of the shifter... but would you be interested in the OE shifter one (pretty sure it is tear free) for $20? i can chuck the parking brake one in for free if you want it (iirc the tear is small but i would feel bad charging for it)

Nope just a regular OE header, surprised it lasted through 3 seasons of TT and 2 of track days to be honest lol, but then again the clutch on my old r50 did 140k miles before i sold the car and the r53 shows zero signs of slipping so I might never have an excuse for an os giken lol

The difference between OEM diff and the OS GIKEN are like night and day. You will never know the traction you are missing until you get an OSG diff.

With the OSG diff it is point and hammer the gas and that's the direction you go very quickly. Also great when slowing down into a turn because of so much grip.

I don't doubt it, my truck's locker feels more track worthy than the oe lsd... tbh i didn't think my car had one till i looked it up lol i can't imagine what pure open diff would be like on track, ew lol
I plan on going the cheap route till the clutch goes (then doing the clutch and the lsd at the same time) and swapping my 17x8 for 17x9 next season
now that it is a track only car i can cut the fenders to make space for some 235+ tires that the miatas in my class get to run... there are a couple of other minis (one with a os giken diff) but they aren't quite on pace yet
