MotoringFile Sections: F56 Two-Door Hardtop, Official News May 28th, 2015 21 Comments


We’ve not been shy for our excitement about the new F56 JCW. Equally we (along with most of you) have not been shy our dislike of the standard wheels that come with the car. Luckily MINI does have an option that manages to look fantastic – almost as nice as the NM Engineering RSe 12s we’re currently running on our long term Cooper S. However until now we haven’t had a chance to see them actually on a car and in the flesh. Along with this MINI also has a number of JCW accessories that (potentially) enhance the look and performance that have been hard to find at best. continued →

MF Garage: Summer Tires for Our 2015 Cooper S

MotoringFile Sections: F56 Two-Door Hardtop, MotoringFile Garage May 20th, 2015 16 Comments


We’ve bit the bullet and are upgrading our lowly 16″ tires and wheels that accidentally came with our 2015 long term test car to something much more aggressive. We’ll get to the wheels later this week. But first up is deciding on tires. This is normally an easy decision for us. Basically go to Tirerack and buy whatever Michelin’s latest max performance summer tire is. However we’ve done that plenty over the years. This time we wanted to go a slightly different route. continued →
