The lift kit for Gen 3 Mini Countryman is top quality. The end result was more than satisfactory and the company that installed it was impressed with the quality.

I’ll start off by saying great customer service but when it comes to owning the rarest mini of all “ John Cooper works mini gp” these guys had no idea about the tune to use and it caused my engine to blow .
Now I’m not mad and this is defiantly not a hate review as i have all the money and time that I’ll ever need to have my car fixed . Which is already done by ordering a new engine . But if money was an issue for people and you owned one of these extremely rare minis don’t let m7 throw a tune on it because the GP is much different then any other JCW Cooper . The engine is the same but has a much higher compression rate then the regular JCW . Wrong tune blew my engine I’m close friends with RPM performance who are the king of tunes and without question this is the reason for the blown engine every after submitting my VIN number to M7 and they stated that they had the proper tune for the performance parts going into it . RPM took one look at the tune that was applied and laughed . Like i said I’m not mad or trying to bash these guys but they wouldn’t admit any fault ( which we expected ) the bottom line is , they have never worked or even probably seen a JCW GP edition mini and i truly hope to god they never get the chance to assist in one again , for the owners sake .

Recently worked with Dorie to order a intake for my Countryman. By far the smoothest interaction and transaction with a site I've had. Everything was done with the highest regards to professionalism and to make our side happy as well.
The product (M7 MAXX-Flo Intake) was quickly shipped and we couldn't be happier. High quality craftsmanship as well as clear installation instruction. Had the intake for about a week and have noticed better airflow, spooling, and throttle response. Able to hear the blow off valve at low boost now! Definitely will order through M7 again!

The best thing I bought until now
Review by Tsubasa Firos2 years ago
For the past two years, I have been tinkering with my 2009 Mini Cooper S Clubman by adding performance parts. After lots of searching, I decided to give the people at M7 Speed a shot, and I could not be happier with everything. To date, I have installed the following parts from M7 - M7 Speed MAXX-Flo intake, M7 Turbo heat shield, M7 turbo charge pipe, M7 Oil Catch Can, NGK Iridium Plus spark plugs (standard temp), and a Milltek decat downpipe. In addition, I sent ECU (the car's brain) to M7 for ECU flash tuning (Manic Motorsports Stage 2 tune). Any time I have needed help or guidance, they have been extremely supportive. In particular, sending the ECU 100's of miles away via FedEx was nerve wracking, but Mark at M7 explained the entire process and provided insights after the new ECU was installed to make my Mini a monster of a motoring machine - exactly what I wanted. I always check M7 first for my performance part needs!

Truly an awesome group and Great Customer Service. Had an issue with a Turbo Heat Shield order and Dorie came to the rescue!! Great Customer Service and constant communication! Have ordered several items from M7 including a Oil Catch Kit and the Chromed Strut Tower Brace and truly great products. M7 is a must for anyone wanting to modify their Mini to where it truly needs to truly be. Tom R.

I am in the Sales/Customer Service roll at my work and pride myself on how I act with customers and build relationships. I have talked and dealt with several Employees at M7 over the last 2 years and every one of M7 staff members have been great and went above and beyond. Our Local MINI club even had our yearly picnic event and M7 even drove 1.5 hrs to come out to it with there latest demo ride. Everyone at our picnic was talking about there work and there parts. I will continue to use M7 as my first choice for any parts for my MINI Cooper.
To M7 staff keep up the good work...
A Loyal Customer

Seriously though, the customer service was incredibly responsive when I had a question, then actually honest about getting my parts out right away, which I greatly appreciated. The stage 1 kit for my gen 2 MINI Cooper S Countryman was as advertised and worth every smile I get taking it out. I'll be buying more from you guys in the near future to widen my smile.

I want to give a big thank you to Allan Winters and Dorie Savage for a wonderful experience on my R56 heat shield. Both Allan and Dorie, not only help me out but they have proved how reliable and trustworthy their company are. Thank you so much for continuing making such awesome products.

OK the title was just to get your attention. I ordered the M7Carbon Fiber oil catch can and the turbo shield. What wonderfully made and machined products that look better under the hood of my Cooper S than the original equipment there. They neglected to throw the hoses in the box for the oil catch can and when I called they immediately got them in the mail and I received them two days later! Perfect fit in every way. The turbo shield obstructs your ability reinstall the plastic cover around the oil filler cap. I cut the OEM cover down with my band saw easily since the plastic is rather soft and not brittle at all. It now looks as if the turbo cover were a part of the original equipment.
Not only do you get excellent equipment with M7 their product peoples response is all in your favor. I will take any of them out for a craft beer if they come to my town.

I have ordered quite a few things from M7 for my R60. I can say every interaction with Bill, Dorie, Mark, and Alan have been nothing but outstanding. I have ordered parts and a tune, and can say without a doubt I would and have recommended M7 to Mini friends, and family. Issues I have faced have been addressed well above and beyond anything I could have imagined. When ever I have had any questions I can just call and get the info I need and i don't feel like a number.
Review by Shingen Kamenarova3 years ago
I would like to start off by saying a+ and the reasoning for that is, I open the box the parts were in. The way m7 packed the parts in box was very neat and put in with care. I am a big car guy and have order a lot of parts thu out the years, also being a business owner the little things like that go a long way with me. Now, for the parts. The quality of the parts are well built and fit nicely for a very easy install. The kit also works nicely, releases up the air flow and helps with the performance of the mini, I look forward to deal with m7, take up the good work thanks rob

The company seems excellent with transaction, communication, and delivery to California. Unfortunately, my R56 Vortex 2 Scoop - Prepreg Fiberglass - for my 2009 Mini cooper S conv did not install smoothly. This may have had something to do with the US side extra sheeting under the bonnet? Two of the holes aligned perfectly, but the one crucial one in the front did not, and there was no way to make that work without going to a metal shop to make necessary hole -- so I had to find another way to bind the scoop differently. For $300 fiberglass product, it was horrible experience. So I do not recommend the product. Another suggestion is to make your installation instruction to video, thus allowing customers and future customers to see if a particular product can easily be assembled as instructed. This allows for slight car differences to allow for easier or harder installation.

The scoop hood is great for my ram air intake. It is a little rough on the finish but nothing hard to fix with some sand paper.

M7 is awesome. If you want quality mini parts look no more.
Review by Rubielyn3 years ago
Every part of this experience was god awful. Here's how it went: I purchased a Vortex 2 hood scoop for my r56 cooper s. This item was a very steep price to begin with but with how they talk it up on their site I figured it would be worth the cost (more on this later.) On their site it was listed as "in stock" so I coughed up the 300 bucks and ordered it. Several days later (when the part should be arriving on my doorstep) I received an email from M7 informing me that they are actually far into back order and to expect it to ship "soonish" or else I could get a refund. They were smart in lying about them being in stock because I decided to wait since I'd already paid. Otherwise I'd not have purchased it and looked elsewhere. I asked if they could upgrade my shipping to make up for the wait they forced on me and they refused. They also refused to discount it at all to make up for the wait. After 2 and a half weeks (2 weeks passed when I should have RECEIVED it like their site said, and a full paycheck later) I finally got an email saying it had just SHIPPED. Now fast forward to finally getting it, we're now 3 weeks in and out $300. I open the box and WOW! A cheap piece of fiberglass with horrible lines from the molds, no finish of any kind, it's very thin to the point of being wobbly, and overall feels like it's gonna shatter if a leaf hits it going too fast. What's more, there are no instructions, just a paper telling you too go on their site and SEARCH FOR IT ON YOUR OWN. There's one other paper and it's just another giant paper informing you that the expensive piece of junk you just bought can't be returned. Not without a TWENTY PERCENT restocking fee. That's 60 bucks, which after looking at the product is far more than it probably cost them to make it. They have horrible customer service, terrible quality parts, they were dishonest so I'd buy they're products anyways, they weren't willing to make up for their error, they weren't apologetic, and they were very unprofessional. There were other bad parts but this is already an essay. Moral of the story... STAY AWAY FROM M7!!!! There are far better products for cheaper with better service and shorter waits everywhere else. Don't deal with M7.

Review by Chenrui Hollanders3 years ago
No review at the moment, bought the kit hoping step by step instructions are included but only basic not related to Mini Cooper where to splice to power the kit but dissatisfaction, I wanted to return the item already open. Dont get me wrong its a must to have especially my car has on going overheating issue but I have another alternative which is cost way less $25 Elmo Bluetooth and can monitor more even boost.
Review by Chayata3 years ago
Install went smoothly once I saw it was ok to snip the plastic alignment tab on one of the strut towers. There's not a lot of play in the cable to get it into the cable run on the driver's side tower, but I was able to get it moved into place with a little work with a screwdriver. All in all, not too much of an effort!
Review by Eunicecustomer3 years ago
the install went pretty smooth. I had to hammer my mushroomed sheet metal flat to get it to mount. the reinforcement was not strong enough to remove the mushroomed sheet metal but the hammer (small sledge) got just about all of it. there is a very noticeable improvement in the stoutness of the car and the handling seems to be greatly improved. I wish i had purchased it sooner. the only reason i did not give it 4 stars was that it could not remove the mushroom by itself.
