MINI Cooper S R53 Checkmate
BMWCCA Magazine Project Car Gets the Powerflex Treatment
The MINI Cooper, and the Cooper S in
Although the MINI Cooper S delivers a great combination of sensibility and performance, this 2006 (R53) Checkmate edition didn't come with any extra performance-enhancing parts from the factory. Our friends with Die Zugspitze, the official club magazine from the BMW CCA New York Chapter, decided to fix that with some great upgrades to their MINI's brakes, powertrain, and suspension—including a full Powerflex Handling Pack upgrade.
