Great Product by Rich

I bought my 2016 Countryman used, not realizing at the time there was no spare. I discovered this (fortunately not in a time of need) shortly after putting on four new Michelin CrossClimate-2, so I was certainly not going to switch to run-flats. And like you, I want a spare. Always. The only reasonable solution I could find was a tire/tyre carrier as shown in the picture. It's made and sold by M7Speed (M7Speed.com) and cost me about $1,000. Not cheap and even less the case if shipped to a place where you use petrol. On the positive side, it installs easily in the threaded rear tow hook receivers and it swings nicely out of the way for lifting the hatch. No holes to drill and no mods to the car. Does not block either the plate or the rear window to any extent that matters. Money well spent for someone who loves the car but must have a spare.

AWESOME!! GREAT PRODUCT!!! by Ford

Another amazing product from @m7speed going forward n the mini rally build of our R61. This thing is well built and very lightweight! Also it keeps the @fumotousa oil drain valve safe for super easy future oil changes. And of course the guys at M7 sent me another sweet decal and when I figure out where it goes, I’ll show off the other line green ones they gave me. #badassmini #r61jcw #minir61 #r61paceman #r61 #m7speed #fumotovalve

THANK YOU!!! by Ronak

Hey Tom, Thanks for calling back so quickly. I was able to get the subframe brace on! Thank you so much for your assistance. You have provided the best customer experience I’ve ever had with any company and I will continue to recommend m7 products to my friends in the mini community!

Love it well made by Chefw0lf

I recommend this as the first thing to put on your mini if it's turbo. Easy to install make sure to check the dip stick every 1k miles as well as oil level in the engine

Yup, mounted myself, fumbled a bit, 1.5hrs by William, Rusty

Received quickly. Looks good ... read the instructions, then again. removed the "felt" covering, that was easy. That cover keeps out dust, its of no value for protection... mostly show/no go. Finding the location of where the included crossmember goes took me a while, then a light goes on and you see the small rectangle on each side of the radiator bar and it's easy. Mounted the plate easily actually. Put in the two LARGE bolts at the front, hand tighten, then lifted the rear. Held it loosely in place with a single zip tie to free up my hands to mount the bolt/spacer/nut to one side then the other side. Cut the zip tie and started tightening everything. The 3 small screws up front did not line up with the original vehicle mounting point. They're not very important to the function of the plate... so I drilled the plate to allow the mounting of the those three to the cars flimsy plastic and the aluminum plate... looks good, and provides the minor support intended by the plate/cars plastic. no big deal. Torqued 4 primary support bolts, done. The protection provided by the plate is 100% more than original "protection." Happy camper. Follow the directions, they work ... I just had to read them 15 times or more to "get" what they said. smile

Big Whiner Now by LittleRedReaper

2006 Red JCW S just picked up in September. This CAI exceeds my expectations over the JCW factory installed unit it had when I got it. Perfect fit and straightforward install! Chirp 2nd now and she wants to spin loose to 3rd - major power and response improvement with just this one add. Stop thinking about it...do this!!

Top Quality, Easy Installation, Perfect Fit by James

My strut towers were not distorted, so no "body work" was required to install this brace. It's a well finished, high quality piece. The enclosed fasteners are stainless steel and even the included Allen wrenches are labeled for material (CrMo) and size. The tower reinforcements are 13mm thick and appear to be CNC machined. The cross brace is extremely rigid when properly torqued. The entire installation took about 30 minutes and the brace fit perfectly, with no noticeable hood interference. The Mini seems more sure-footed when cornering now. Well done, M7!

M7 cares about its customers by Louis D

This company cares about its customers and supporting the products it manufactures. I purchased what I thought to be a scratch and dent complete N18 high flow boot kit from ECS Tuning, but scratch and dent in this instance meant a missing parts kit; info ECS tuning buried in the description. ECS tuning was extremely unhelpful and didn’t lift a finger to assist me in getting the proper parts I needed to install the boot, saying I needed to reach out to M7 and I should’ve read the listing more carefully. (If only “missing parts kit” was as prominent as “scratch and dent”) M7 gave me a break on the parts package because of my experience with ECS. All I had to do was ask. M7 is a great company that looks at each customer service situation uniquely, they won a customer today. Thank You M7speed

09 mini cooper s by Pipo

Awesome fits like a glove

2020 F60 JCW - Lifted Review - A big No by Maerk

1) Love the lift. 2) Alignment barely achieved as all adjustment maxxed out. 3) Dynamic Dampers basically useless as everything is amplified. 4) When getting on throttle vehicle goes sloppy 5) JCW model limited in wheel choices due to calipers. 6) company quick to sell kit, no responses to emails after sale. 7) kit highly recommended for F60 S models without dynamic dampers and without front parking sensors. 8) Not Recommended for F60 JCW model. 9) Inspection of sway bar links after removal of kit revealed distorted threads. Kit was installed less than one month. 10) Kit was installed and factory wheels and tires were installed with 12.5mm spacers. This was done to fully evaluate the kit itself and rule out any other issues. It is believed the torque and HP of the JCW combined with all4 and traction control along with the new altered center of gravity resulted in some sketchy handling at higher speeds ( passing / interstate). - This is just my evaluation and once the kit was purchased there was no after sale assistance from M7 -

Two thumbs up, lots of pep and turbo noises by Dave B

I just installed the kit on my 2015 Countryman JCW. The plumbing takes some patience but everything fit perfectly. The cat install was reasonable except for a few heat shield bolts! Flash took about 50 mins to upload. The power increase is fantastic. The boost and pop off sounds are very pronounced compared to stock. 100% rec this kit to add fun to your Mini. I will be adding the Borla exhaust next.

M7 Didn't Misprint Anything, I Read It Wrong. by Mike B.

In my previous review about a misprint, I was at fault. I mistook 100-in for 100-ft. M7 did a great job with this product and I have logs to back it up. Just be sure to have a small torque wrench.

Great product so far, Wouldn't use the cover bolt included. Instruction Misprint. by Mike B.

Great product so far and definitely has an effect on engine bay and intake temps. Looks fantastic! My only gripe is that the supplied replacement valve cover bolt is not worth the risk installing. I slightly cracked my cover, thankfully not affecting the running of the car. It can just be held on with DEI gold thermal tape, not worth the risk damaging the cover. Also the instructions have a deadly misprint. It says to toqrue the cover bolt to "100 lbs or 12nm". So I set my wrench to 100 and cracked it. Then I realized they probably meant 10lb......too late...

2014 Mini Cooper Countryman S by Jason Daugherty

This exhaust system sounds amazing!!! It gives your car that nice low rumble and literally installed it in 45 min. My turbo spools up so much quicker and I do not have as much turbo lag. Nice seams on all the welds, very well made.

MaxxBoost turner kit by Scott

This by has been my best purchase ever stage 2 for my R56 N18 boy did this ever make a big difference she really run hard now just really amazing at the quality of this product and great customer service M7 crew really know the Mini's well top quality service

Think about what's missing by SoCalSteve

This is really a 10 minute install. However, a trailer requires electrical connections and a place to hook the safety chains. This kit provides neither.

WOWZA!!!! by James H

WOWZA what a difference. My Mini is like a rocket! Thank you M7.

Thumbs up from me by CollaredSleeves

Installation was fairly simple. Took about an hour taking my time, with no issues with the hardware. The box looks great in the compartment, and the supercharger whine sounds fantastic. At about the same price point as other intakes on the market, I'm very happy with it so far.

Protect and Perform by CollaredSleeves

I decided on this strut tower brace as a way to help stiffen the front suspension as well as protect against mushrooming. After carefully flattening the tower tops, the bar bolted down perfectly and has noticeably stiffened those tighter turns. Not to mention it looks great. I did have to mold the hood liner, but that's no big deal for the peace of mind that this bar provides.

M7 Catch Can Is Required for R60 Engines!! by Clearlakejoe

After spending literally thousands of dollars at the MINI service center and a local shop trying to diagnose hesitancy/jerking during acceleration, it was determined that "carbon buildup on the valves" was causing all the issues. That's when I found the M7 Oil Catch Can and installed in the breather system. Since installing the M7 product, I haven't had one issue and the 2011 Countryman S continues to drive like it was designed to. Last weekend I emptied nearly 14 oz. of watery sludge the M7 catch can had pulled from the airflow after only 10,000 miles. I would post a picture if I could and you would be amazed on the amount of crap that didn't go into the motor. I didn't expect this amount - and probably should be emptying every 5,000 miles from now on. I can only imagine all the issues this would have created (or re-created) flowing into the R60 engine. The airflow dynamics is a known issue with the R60 version, and for $200 this is a 100% solution so far. I highly recommend this product. Great design, well made and even looks pretty good.

Great except by Blake Knock

So I bought these to replace a set of aftermarket lower control arms on my 2013 Countryman S. They are way better and noise free. They are a bit heavy but that’s not the issue. Both grease guns I have aren’t able to push grease into the fitting. I’m not sure if it’s an air pocket and resistance or what. However the grease doesn’t go in and instead leaks between the gun and the fitting. Anyone have any recommendations or experienced similar problems.

Mean Snow Machine by Robert

Thanks for the lif lift kit. Got it just in time for the snow. Car looks great. Runs good. With those tires and all wheel drive, it ate the snow up. Had no issues getting around town. Funny story, while my car was parked at the dealership after the install, they told me they had several people inquire on purchasing the car.

Great product by Gen 3 pitbull

Easy no drilling installation. Super solid and vibration free. My light are rock steady. Great product

Excellent by Bruce

I love this strut tower brace. It is functional as well as visually appealing in a conservative way. I chose this brace particularly because it had a low profile on the strut towers and doesn't make contact with the heat extractor vents in my hood like my last strut tower brace did. You can always count on m7!!

Excellent by Starlet king

Excellent service and product quality is very good

Good Stuff! by Mini-addict

Once again this M7 product exceeded my expectations. Perfect fit, great looks and no CEL! Thanks M7

Quality built by mcheney7

Easy to install, instructions are adequate for the job. Nuts, bolts and hardware may be slightly different from what is in the instructions but you get the idea enough for this simple install. If installing skid plate, mount the bull bar first or you will not be able to access the hex head bolts that connect the adapter bracket to the frame bracket.

Easiest add on so far by mcheney7

This can be a one man job is you have your MINI on jack stands and use a floor jack and a scrap piece of wood to lift the back end of the skid plate up to the spacers. If installing the bull bar, mount the bull bar first or the skid plate will not allow for enough space for you to access the hex head bolts that connect the adapter bracket to the frame bracket.

Outstanding great value by Ted

Will buy from M7 again

Great quality Bosch coils by RR

Great replacement part for my 2012 R56 Base Mini. Fast reliable shipping. The coils worked fantastic.

Very well made by Matt

It looks great, takes a few minutes to install, fits with my cts turbo open air filter set up. Just a quality build to the catch can.

great look, just a little shake on take off by april

great look and after mini alignment, drives good except a slight wobble on take off. other than that if drives wonderful.

Great product! by Joseph

Though new to modding cars, I can say this is a great product! It was a really easy install and it sounds great. Haven't driven a lot with it yet but so far I'm not having any problems. My main concern is heat from the engine but I haven't run into that yet.

heavy duty by ted

Quick shipping/quality product at reasonable price. Will use M7 more.

What BMW should have done with the X1 in the first place by JW

Was finally able to install this lift kit on my 2019 F48 X1 X-Drive. Wow, what a huge improvement!!! Combined the kit with a set of Bilstein B6 shocks/struts (they were all coming out anyway so may as well upgrade) and ditched the runflats for a set of Falken Wildpeak AT Trail 225/55R18 tires on the stock style 569 wheels. Sits higher than an X3 and just about at the level of an X5. Tires clear by approximately 1/2 inch, so there is a little room to go even bigger in the future. The only issue installing was the rear adjustable sway bar links are a tight fit...actually we put the stock ones back in, which work just fine. Other than that, everything fit like a glove. Just a slight shimmy during acceleration, which seems to be going away as I drive it more. Definitely recommend to anyone looking to transform their X1 into something better.

M7 Team Has Your Back by Order # 100014711

My Eibach sway bar kit was missing the hardware and the M7 Team came through with the missing brackets and bushings just in time for me to install it over the weekend.
