Default new R53 mini owner.

Hey all!
I am coming from a 98 M Roadster. Lost it to a student driver. Anyway, I bought a 03 with a bunch of aftermarket parts. Perfect shape, well taken care of. Couple of questions, I am currently getting the same mileage as my M and not driving it as hard. Is it normal to get around 20 mpg? If not what can I look for to get the mileage up? It does have a forge intercooler and a CAI. I have not inspected the pully but expect that to be non-stock also.
Thanks for any input

I don't think your mileage should drop that low given it is a 12yr old car. I have an 04 with some goodies in it also. I get around 27-29 mpg and I have a lead foot. Have you checked the injectors?

Dear all,

What are the parts replacement I should perform on a 2006 checkmate with 140,000km mileage with it? Need advice...
