Hi folks...
Im new to the mini scene , always fancied one so I've now taken the plunge.
Ive bought a mint 14 plate gen2 cooper s with jcw pack.
Silver white on 22k miles.
Looking forward to getting to know you all and the car.

My first thoughts are.... what are the common mods to do?
Also id like to add a cycle roof rack and protective mudflaps...
Anyone point me in the right direction.
Cheers

Hi welcome to tM and the MINI family!

Quick cheap cosmetic mods (I’m not an expert on performance mods) will be replace your roof aerial with the Sports antenna:

Replacing the halogen bulbs with LED.

Here’s a brochure to gather more ideas for your R56:

On the mudflats and bike rack, there are a large number on offer on eBay and Amazon to choose from or alternatively take the part number and call our site sponsor Cotswold MINI for a quote.
