Replaced the Cabin filter and sprayed some A/C Deodorizer in the vents. Hopefully now it wont smell like a dirty gym bag when I turn on the AC/Heat.

Rrplaced the VANOS seals from www.beisansystems.com and installed new valve cover gasket. This job is a lot easier than the oil filter housing gasket and CCV which I have also done. Must thank Rajaie from beisan systems for his help!

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

Replaced all of my textar brake pads with Ate brake pads. Broke a sensor in the process which was only a few weeks old but that's life. The new pads feel excellent with no noise. I'm ready for the dust though.

Picked up my new key

Bought the car last year with only one key. Its performance got worse and worse, until recently, it wouldn't unlock at all remotely. New key, with BMW CCA discount, was $160.52.

Took 10 seconds to program (doors unlocked, key in to ACC, then back off, remove, press and hold unlock, press lock 3 times quickly, doors will lock, done).

Trade it for an M or ZHP.

My initial debate was between Jurid, Pagid and Ate. Ate came out to be substantially cheaper than Jurid/Pagid

Pulley reduction or chip. Looks newer so I think chip is the way to go as they are no longer supercharged.

Fixed the sunroof

First time posting...long time user.
Finally fixed the broken sunroof. Many thanks to the repair description on this site. The repair was easy, but positioning the glass took time.

IS it an S? If it is. get either this http://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-55...-cooper-s.aspx or this http://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-59...-cooper-s.aspx if it isn't focus on suspension.

No unfortunately it's not an s I got this one because it only had 8100 km's on it and was the best deal I could find on a pre 2007 mini (don't really like the newer ones as much) it was either this or a newer clubman decided to go with this more money for mods!
