Strong as an OX by Brown Bear

So Let me say if your going to install an air intake system change do that first. I have made many changes to my engine over the past year so I am always removing this to do the work. My point is some things work good when new but if you re-install them they loosen up. This kit DOES NOT do that, every time I reinstall this back on it is as strong and tight as the first time.. So let me say this is a very strong bar system, Solid, and cool looking when you pen the hood, Its not a thick tube thing it is a designed strong 3X1 solid beam of strength...

Can I have somthing in my can please? by Brown Bear

So in my list of all my review we come to one that I will enjoy writing the most. So I saw someone on a board talk about how these cans were crap (I already had mine) and you should by the USA made one for double the money (This one is also USA made) because this one is empty and is just a can.. SO I took mine off opened it up and wow it had oil in it and even a bit of what looked like gas in the bottom(So I think it worked) But then looked and my friends other can (did not think it was made as good) and found it had a little small chamber with holes in it Not worth $100.00. So after a few tech support questions I spent 4.99 for S/S chore boy and put in mine.. Now it is not empty, Its made well, It fits exactly, and I saved $94.00.. My can still works and its not empty.. Buy this one it is much better quality than my friends black metal can..

Simple install.. by Brown Bear

First off I am removing another air intake system due to I did not feel it was working as good as it should. So we open the hood- I remove my air sensor and set aside, then remove the old intake system and find this new one fits perfect into the same place. and all the hoses almost match up perfect. (I have the Forge intake hose also and needed to remove about 1 inch from the rear end for it to line up as needed) step one just a driver for clamps needed.. Now for the charge hose. that I needed to remove the skid plate I just installed so don't do the skid plate first.. Two clamps easy, then there is one hard to reach screw that you can not get to when engine is hot( I did and it hurt sooo you need to wait to be smart) screw does not need to be put back-but there is a water hose that also connected to the old hose to hold it up( that can be fixed with a heavy duty long wire tie to hold it to the new hose).. Over all easy install with a few bumps.. all fit perfect and is made well. I noticed the car running a bit rough but after the final step of the new plugs.. Smooth as glass. I DO HAVE more pickup and less drag on starts...

ERasy install and finaly safe to play in the dirt. by Brown Bear

I purchased this product about three weeks ago to replace my plastic Mini Copper shield. The install was easy and worked right around the Bull Bar as instructed. After putting mini on my ramps I would say it was a 20 minute install just because I had a bit of custom work in the way I had to remove. Simple tools(anyone should have) and ramps.. ( you will need a hex head wrench for the three front bolts- I found the size in my US hex kit) FYI: I think this skid plate might be one of the strongest items on Brown Bear..

Great Products by Mike

The items came fast, they high quality and customer service is awesome!! Will buy from again!

2" lift on my mini countryman by TampaDeb

Paid $500 to have it installed with my new tires. It looks totally awesome! The quality of these products is amazing. Super heavy duty! Getting a bull bar next! So glad I didn't go with a cheaper set from the net. You get what you pay for. A+ on the tech service too. They answered all my questions.

Very Nice! by JP

Replaced a factory JCW strut bar with this one from M7. All I can say is WOW! I didn't think it would make much of a difference, but I was wrong. You can feel the difference in the corners. The overall build quality and handling is far superior versus the JCW bar. Thanks for another great product.

Awesome! by JP

Love the under strut system. Improved overall chassis stiffness. Quality product!

Great Product by Jab

The install was very easy and well worth the purchase. Turbo seems to spoil up easier and sounds cool. Would love to have silicone boot from air flow to turbo

Amazing by Uglyman

Amazing product extremely happy highly recommend it

Great product by John

I installed everything but was a little disappointed in overall performance. I seam to have more boost with just the small supercharger pulley.

Go For it! by ChicagoRus

This was one of the best decisions I ever made. If you're thinking about it, go for it. The staff were all terrific and even helped out with timing so I could arrange to work one of the days while they were working on the car. The power is simply amazing, I love my stage 2 and like how it pops and bangs like crazy, but only when I want it to, to keep the neighbors happy. My car is properly fast, and because it's a Manic tune, it's been tested and makes me feel safer about the mod.

Pricey by Tony

It's definitely better than the stock hose, didn't notice much noise or power gain but there is some improvement. I would say a lot of money for a silicon hose but I know they can get pricey. A $150 price tag i think would be more fair.

Nice CAI by Ian

Much better than the stock air flow system, makes the supercharger so much louder and Improved gas mileage, not a lot of noticeable power gains but that's to be expected from an intake

Fun upgrade by Tony

Quick easy install. Sweet looks and sound. More noticeable horsepower gains. Little pricey but not terrible.

No BULL here! by Brown Bear

So here we go again with another install to the Brown Bear. I was thinking like lets put aside hours to get this right however I was surprised that out of all the directions M7 has given me these were the best written and with the pics... So what did I find out that was not in the directions.. Nothing on this install easy as cake. took me after putting bear on the ramps and let cool down about 45 minutes to do this install.. Put on the parts then tightened the bolts (make sure the two sides are the same they move a lot during the install) so I hate to say it but after my other revues this one seems kinda boring. SO strong material, easy install, GREAT PRODUCT.. Oh ya in some pictures floating around you could see two different bars to mount lights to, there is only the top bar in the production product so if you wanna go all out lights you need to do a conversion for more than 4 on the top of bar(with extra 4 light kit)..

Should I lift for me or others? by Brown Bear

So it is time in the string of upgrades to do a lift kit. So I start looking at my options. I find a few options out there for my countryman because I made A choice to go proven kit and not reinvent the wheel here. So I look at price and find one for under $300 that gives me four metal pices that were welded together and no other parts. Then I find another kit for some more money that is hand welded with longer welds on metal plates for another bolt and go solution.. So I think to myself if I lift my car there are no other things that need to change... Nothing needs to be longer or adjusted? Now I find the kit by M7 that has " suprise" A set of adjustable sway bar ends or maybe while we have it torn appart I might want to stiffin the ability of my car not to tip or sway due to the center of gravity will change. So i get the 20 sway bar instead of the 15 that comes with my car and works when on the ground and not lifted. So then I find that the M7 spacers are not welded ( some welding parts fail under stress) the M7 kits are cast to racing spec not just welded. So I got my kit with full lift and updated support.. The kit does not come with directions printed... They need to be printed from online so print these now when you purchase the kit so you can READ THEM . They are easy and to the point.. but you will be finding yourself calling your dealer for a few questions on your specific model and year. Mainly tork levels on some bolts when you rebuilt with the kit... overall easy ( if you follow directions) and when done you need a complete 4x4 alignment ( suggest you find a place with a new Hunter system).. now tires?? Ya it is not just a kit but now new tires.. Big style truck knobby tires look real cool.. but on a paved road could be LOUD as in 90+ decibels... so in most cases you got what you choose good or bad so " THINK ABOUT QUIET OR COOL LOOKING" now new tire size? 215 60r17 fits great.. But no off road tires come in that size so if you go that way you will go 225/65r17 and they will hit when you turn, when you bounce... just to warn.. Ok I love my lifted mini Countryman, I love the tires I got on the highway.. I think its the best update I did. I have gone over 3 digit speeds and with proper balance/alignment its as smooth as glass on my Premier LTX tires.. only issue is the rubber used on the new sway bar support is top end racing stock. Even with grease I still hear a squeaking at times.. I HOPE AS ALWAYS MY INSIGHTS HELP YOU MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE.. brownbearmini.com

If it wears 4x4 Shoes its a 4X4 right? by Brown Bear

So here we go with another true life review. Lets start by saying this is the 5th kit I have installed and I have gotten to expect two basic things Easy of install and completeness. So here we go I got the kit...And no directions? Nope M7 is now a green company so when you order a kit just print out the directions at the same time so you can pre-read them. I must say due to time this is the first kit I did not install myself on Brown Bear so.... Techs I found would not get directions on there own, they would guess and figure it out, So I talked to the manager and he was glade to print them out for the techs (Don't Assume) PARTS- everything there, Quality- Top notch solid construction and Molded to last( I will not have to worry about any broken welds while 4x4ing. All it installed and now we get tires.. I have found not many COOL LOOKING 4x4 tires come in "mini lifted" sizes.. So i got the smallest K/02 235/60r17 and guess what.. Hits the front when stearing, Hits the back when I bounce, Front left tire hits flap when its windy.. So be sure your tires are the right "Size" not just the right number.. So to be sake your looking at 28"width,8" depth. So basic 4X4's to big.. Get the 12.5 spacers for the wheels.. get wider tires and not as high to not drag on every turn.. SO GREAT kit, Directions were easy after getting some extra info from dealer, Buy tires from someplace if you can where you can see and touch before purchase.. And Remember your All4 is a 4x4 always until you hit 40Mph.. (starts in all4 mode) If they keep this in you can see more Brown Bear details at BrownBearMini.com

Manic Stage II by Bert

My 2011 JCW is a completely new BEAST w/ the Manic Stage II tune. Thank you Mark and Dorie

Works as it should by Challengerv6

The 60 mm pulley really increased low end grunt and dropped 0-60 mph run by several tenths, thats coming from a 69 mm pulley. only complaint, this is a Sprintex part with a MRSP price of $75.00, I had to pay twice that thru M7

Turbo heat shield by 2FST4GM

I just bought a 2010 Mini Cooper S for my son who turned 16. It has the warped hood scoop. the previous owner said it was a "thing" on Mini's. So I did some research and found out it was true. I just dropped off a new scoop at the body shop to get painted and installed my M7 turbo heat shield to keep it from happening on the new one. Its well made and was easy to install. I took my time and it took under 10 minutes. It looks great too.

Great by Jeffreu

Excellent plugs. Pre-gap is a little small conpared to stock, regap iridium tips carefully with proper tool. I ran mine at .30 as .35+ can result in a fail to spark at high rpms. You can run as low as .20 as high .28 on increased boost applications.

M7 Carbon Fiber Shifter by Frankie

Very satisfied, perfect fit. Beautiful addition to my Mini

Great. by Greenminicooper

I love it. It only took a few moments to install it. Sounds great and looks even better. It's not made out of anything cheap

Super Cool Addition. by Smithe482

Well made and easy to install. John, I really appreciate your post

Great by Jeffrey

Great quality. Only faults are location, which for the r60...there are not many options. Once coupled with an upgraded cold pipe, it gets cramped. I'd like to get away from using the reducer on the VC because you're relying on that silly factory seal/clip. But you still cannot be the value of this, well machined and very needed on these cars.

Outstanding research and development. by 13

The research that went into this design is outstanding. This strut brace really will make your car rotate more and it is a great upgrade. I'm running the front brace also, and stock springs and shocks.

Wonderful.... by Derp

Makes your mini sound like brummmmmm then pashhhhhhhhh. It sounds amazing highly recommend it.

Great Intercooler - Small Modification Required by regaul2

Wagner product is very well made. Installed on 2014 R58 Coupe. One thing to note, you will have to cut part of the lower bumper support tubing to fit the Wagner. The intercooler is wider than the OEM version at the bottom two corners. Easy modification with any rotary tool and metal cutting disk.

Quality product by Russ

Install was easy, excellent quality

This is a must for any MINI owner by Dwight

I had the stage one upgrade done on my 2012 Mini Cooper s. I cannot believe how much it woke it up and I can't wait to upgrade to stage 2!!

Definitely worth it!! by Indy Bill

Added the stage 2 to my 2014 JCW Roadster. It was already fast, now it is near insanely fast. The acceleration increase at 3500 RPM+ is incredible. The R59 is now very happy running +4000 RPM. I have an appointment with a Dyno shop to find out just how much added HP I actually have, but I am scared to death to try and determine the top speed!!

Massive Increase in HP & Sound by Indy Bill

I had this installed at the same time as the Borla cat-back exhaust. The two pieces work so well together, it's hard to determine which one has contributed the most to the sound and HP boost. Regardless, strongly recommend putting this one on your MINI.

Fantastic Sound by Indy Bill

The sound from this exhaust is amazing. Perfectly tuned to make the outstanding harmonics. With all of the other mods, the exhaust completed the MINI.

Super excited to compete my M7 setup. by Evan

Front and rear top bracing will be completed once I get my brace in. Thank you for making such amazing products that really make a big difference.

It was all I expected it to be. by Rossco

The installation was as quick and easy as was advertised. It's great being able to be able to take it off in 10 minutes or less and install it again when needed. I purchased it mainly to carry a bike rack and this is perfect. Wonderful design and would recommend it to any mini owner without any hesitation.

Amazing! by Clyde

I went to have JUST the charge pipe installed. Left with that AND had the Manic Stage 1 done. I will admit I didn't think I would notice a huge difference. Boy was I wrong! VERY IMPRESSED. The staff was extremely knowledgeable, and made the whole process smooth as can be. Now I just have to put my wallet down and try to stay away from here. I wanted to go in the back with a shopping cart and have Christmas early. Will definitely be going back sooner than later!

A MUST HAVE FOR YOUR MINI by Alex

Best upgrade to really make your car Manic ;) Pun intended

Simple, attractive, functional by Terry

It needed some persuasion (hammer) to install onto the mounting posts since it can be difficult to line up both sides straight, but not a big deal. Quick and easy to install, will likely never remove it from the car as it looks great. Highly recommend.
