It looks like it is similar to the MINI Mania kit except that it intakes from the grill:

I find this a big draw, running that type of funnel wont last long in many places.

Edit: 77's duct is nice, any pics of it in the bumper, which bumper does it work with, much better.

Look what I just found... :sly: Project µ pedals. Unfortunately, they appear to be discontinued...

Meh, nobody's getting back to me about how we'd get them in the states... Mackin Industries is the distributor, but I'm having a really hard time getting answers about them. Not my source's fault though - it's his source's fault!

Retarded, they seem like a good set of brakes for a good price.

I got word from someone in Mackin. Here's the email he sent me:
Quote:
Jason,

Unfortunately PMU does not make a caliper kit option for the mini cooper s. They do offer high performance brake pads for autocross and track racing.

Best Regards,

Phillip Phong
Sales and Marketing
I replied with an inquiry about how Mevius has an application for the Mini, but it doesn't look good for getting those nice teal brakes on our cars. Mevius does have a yellow caliper option though

Now I'm trying to figure out how much a Mevius kit would be.

Latest email,
My reply to his:
Quote:
Hi Phillip,

Thanks for the response. The reason I thought that there might be a Project Mu kit for the Mini Cooper is based off of this picture I found from their euro branch, Mevius. I've attached it to this email. [insert pic of cooper S from earlier in this thread]
This was his reply to mine:
Quote:
That is a prototype for the racing caliper. They do not make that one for production.

You can special order the forged 4pot slim caliper. They offer 3 different part #’s.

PMF4SBW01 – 4POT SLIM 300X25mm ROTORS
PMF44SBW01 – 4POT/4PAD SLIM 332X28mm ROTORS
PMF44SBW01B - 4POT/4PAD SLIM 355X28mm ROTORS

Pricing is starting @ $4050.00 MSRP
I haven't looked into those part numbers to see whether they're the Mevius brand or the Project Mu brand, but holy **** that's expensive.
