Very nice cars. If you are spoiled by the Mini's power, a flash tune for the 320d can work wonders in bumping torque/hp.

The wheels fit really nice. Like it also!

MINI is definitely more fun to drive, but to make longer distances, the BMW suits better.

I'm considering it. First Stage tuning it up to 200hp and then make a turbo swap for a GT2260 from a 530d. Maybe up to 240hp then.

Thanks!

Is in fact possible to do. I've swaped my MINI's turbo (originally Gt1544v by Garrett) for a GT1749vb also by Garret (this one fits cars like VW Golf IV PD150hp or Seat Ibiza Cupra TDI).

I'll keep you guys updated!
