    Ok Gang, finding that I miss the ability to throw our bikes on the car and head out to a local trail, I have done my research and pretty much decided to get the MiniFini SportLink II for my 2013 Cooper S Hatch.

    I'm fairly handy with tools and trying to decide if I should tackle the install myself or find a local body shop to handle it. After watching the install video and reading the install instructions the install seems pretty straight forward except for one step. That step concerns the modification to the muffler bracket. the video mentions a tab that needs to be removed but the instructions say this...

    "Separate the part with the two lower holes intact with muffler hanger hook
    the cut should be made right at the point where the metal is narrow, before
    it returns back to support the part that was inside the frame pocket."


    I'm not really sure what this is saying and I don't want to assume it will all make sense once I have it apart. So, could someone who has navigated this install possibly shed some light on what actually needs to be done? Any pics perhaps?

    I am also open to any other tips or suggestions concerning the installation.

    Thanks,
    -John

    I would call Russell at MiniFini and ask him. He's a great guy and very helpful.
