The kits are out..200 hp mini upgrade costing out at 1500 british pounds..so the question begs..

How much in US dollars?

2200 dollars?

200hp in a mini should be a blast..

Think I'd pass on the 3000 british pound option of 18 inch rims and retuned suspension..and the all important M3 Quad exhaust?

17's are more than sporting enough..and the tailpipe and retuned suspension for 3 grand is BS in my opinion..

Now the 200 hp..that sounds like a better deal.

What do you guys think?

Is that upgrading the S? That's not much of an upgrade if it is when there is a supercharger already in place..

You are right, around $2,200 is the rough equivalent of 1,500 Sterling. This can (and does) change daily though.


Currency converter site is above. Might be useful.

Thank you Steve..

I believe moving from 164hp to 200...for 2200 dollars is a square deal..

Is it the best..no..but an even 200 sure is tempting and I would imagine..you still get a full warranty?

200 with the warranty would make sense. and even without one..2200 dollars for 36 hp..is about right..

IMHO..anytime you get better than one real hp for each hundred dollars spent..its fair game..

Mini Mania is selling a turbo kit for the Cooper that will produce 200hp. It cost about $5600 with an intercooler.
