A little known fact about me is:
Sneed4Speed.com offers parts for all MINI Cooper models including the R53, R56 and F56, as well as Countryman, Clubman and convertible.

Sneed4Speed has been racing the "new" BMW MINI Cooper since 2006. Back then, there were no heavy duty race or performance parts available for a car so brand new and like nothing else on the market.
It soon became obvious that while the new MINI had great handling, looks and power, it was not entirely bred for the track. Sneed4Speed started by creating a front mount external oil cooler for the cars. As the engine compartment is very tight in MINIs, oil temperatures would raise to engine damaging levels while on track.
