    Hello;

    This is Onur BASPINAR from Turkey Istanbul. I am lucky to say that due to my occupation I have experienced all types of MINIs. I have studied Social Media Marketing in UCSD on 2010 and started MINIPassion MINI Car Club Turkey on 2011. Eversince we have become one of the most active club around the globe.

    We have the honer to be one of the 7 clubs that were invited by MINI to discuss the MINI Clubs around the globe twice in Munich BMW Classic Museum.

    Right now I am driving a 05' MINI Cooper S JCW Darksilver/Black. Here are some extras photos, hope you guys like it.

    Extras:


    John Cooper Works Tuning Kit & Body Kit
    R95 18' John Cooper Works Rims
    John Cooper Works Sparco Leather Seat Set
    John Cooper Works Leather Dash Board
    John Cooper Works Leather Down Tube Cup Holders
    John Cooper Works Strut bar
    iJohn Cooper Works Shift Indicator
    John Cooper Works Carbon Steering Wheel inserts
    John Cooper Works Carbon Shift Knob and E Break
    John Cooper Works GP Intercooler
    John Cooper Works Gauges
    John Cooper Works Challenge Stickers OEM

    Super Sprint Headers

    I have
    RMV Heards, RMW Cylinder Head, and RMW Race Camshaft that are waiting to be installed on the side. Btw last week I had it wrapped with BRG ;)

    Welcome to MA! Nice looking R53. I really like the wrap. Thats a nice list of RMW parts. Jan at RMW did the tune on my R58, he really knows what he is doing. Once you get the parts on your Mini he can do a remote tune. @Dave.0, one of our other members has lots of RMW parts and Jan did the tune, he has a very fast R53.

    Well I had a R53 GP with the same RMV parts with Vipec Ecu, remote tune was not as effective as it should be. It is probably due to the gasoline quality.

    Very nice Gen1 GP. Do you have 93 octane where you live? Maybe Meth injection would help.
