MINI Gen 1 (2002-2006)

Parts for the first generation (2002-2006) BMW MINI Cooper S.

The R53 MINI Cooper S is a hoot to drive right out of the box. We can help you make it even better. Here's where to start: sway-bar, pulley, intake, exhaust, and brake pads. If you have a non-JCW car, those five items will give you 90% of JCW performance for about a third of the cost and won't require reprogramming of the ECU. Once you've taken care of the basics, check out our suspension offerings. If you have already upgraded your SC pulley, consider an ignition upgrade next: MSD high performance coil, Super Conductor Wires, and one-step colder Spark Plugs. We specialize in parts for the Supercharged Cooper S models (Hardtop 2002-2006 & Convertible 2005-2008), but many parts fit all models. Check each listing for application details.
