Re: Classic Minis: brake servo or no?

I just removed the A/C from a mid 90's Japanese spec SPi, it really helps in the front of the car, not much else.....before and after pics. I think your best bet is just to leave it alone and drive it....flush the brake fluid, do all the usual maintenance. Is yours an automatic or manual transmissio...

Re: Classic Minis: brake servo or no?

The MIntex pads are a great compromise....they'll do fine with or without the brake booster. But..... I like having the power brakes on my 89 Racing Green. I put a booster on my 80 Clubman Estate when I had it too.....frankly I don't know what you'd gain by removing it for extra work space there's n...

Re: Classic Minis: brake servo or no?

I have one with and one without, can hardly tell the difference, but brake pads make all the difference too - too hard a pad and you really have to stomp on them till the brakes warm up. As most classics don't even do 1000 miles a year, and rarely get driven hard, soft pads are fine. If you plan to ...

Re: rear wiper sprayer 2015

Does it use a different setup on the F56?

Seems like if you hear the pump running but no squirt, it must be stopped up somewhere?

Re: Classic Mini Car Show, Baron Sales/Service event March 6-7, 2020

Great turnout this morning at both BMW and MINI, Isaac says appointments for both sales and service were way up for today - here's hoping they have a banner day!

Thanks, Baron MINI/BMW!

I'll run by, I'm not a coffee drinker, but maybe I can have some hot chocolate?

Tomorrow should be a gorgeous day to be out and about. Anyone who's driving their convertible with the top up should be flogged! :lol:

CANCELLED Classic Mini Texas Trip, April 2020

We're gonna do it again! A couple years ago some friends and I travelled down to the Texas Hill country outside of San Antonio for a few days of hooning around the hills in our Classic Minis - a great time was had by all and we only had one small casualty (Buzz bent a support piece in the suspension...
