DDMWorks R53 Mini Cooper S Cold Air Intake!
Power and efficiency are achieved by removing bottlenecks and inefficiencies. This is true for any system, and your S is no different. Their design strives to provide the most power with the highest efficiency of any intake on the market. The UNI dual stage filter provides more air flow with superior filtering over paper or cloth filters, and can be cleaned and re-oiled for a lifetime of service. Completely sealed from the engine bay and open to the pressurized region at the cowl, the DDM Cooper S intake force feeds your supercharger with more fresh, cool air than other intakes on the market. This also makes it the ideal intake for cars with a supercharger reduction pulley. Installation is quick and easy with simple hand tools, and since no parts need to be cut or destroyed, going back to stock is no problem. Available in stainless steel or black powder coat finish, the DDM Works Cooper S Intake will impress you with both looks and performance!

DDM makes a darn good intake for the R53 with this item. You can tell when looking at it that the quality and design is well thought out. This shows when installing as no modification needed. Opening up the intake also helps increase the whine of the supercharger which ups the fun factor. Haven't dyno'd the car so not sure if added power but cars feels 'peppier' but could just be me. I did it for the sound!
Lastly, after having this for a few years I can say that the filter is easy to get to and clean if needed. Highly recommended.

Kit took about an hour to install, with excellent instructions.
Fairly well made, with a few small dimensional issues, remedied with some brute force and ignorance.
Sounds awesome - can really hear that supercharger spin up - which means my fuel economy as gone to hell (as the fast pedal is full-on where possible)
Performance improvements may be slight but that may be more in my head.
Overall I would recommend it, if you are going for ease of installation and a great sound at a reasonable price.
