Hi all,

Just purchased a 2016 Stealth iA, coming from a 2008 R56 Mini Cooper S. Kinda hard to match the level of smiles of that car but this thing is surprisingly fun!!!

Looking forward to learning from everybody and this forum!


Mods planned: TWM Abrams shift knob, lowering springs

Mods in progress: 17x8 XXR 531's, 205/45/R17 Hankook Ventus V12 EVOs

Mods already installed: 20% tint, black leather Wheelskins cover, intake resonator removal

You and another member have mentioned an intake resonator removal; are you just talking about taking out the plastic ducting between the airbox and the front grill?

Welcome! I'm a Former R56 Justa and R55 Clubman S owner myself. The iA is a very simple car compared to the MINIs and I am really loving that. Good luck on the mods!!

Correct. It sounds a lot throatier under acceleration. The butt dyno isn't really telling me there are any power gains but it sounds nice.

Very cool! And you're absolutely right, it's amazing just how "simple" the iA is compare to minis... Thanks as well!

Good choice of wheels!

Can't wait to see them on the iA since from what it seems the design will flow well Scions/Mazdas design.

Where in south, fl?? I pulled the resonator off, and just grounded my TB to my battery, and the throttle response is amazing
