Default Spare tire and mufflers

I have posted this on the general forum with no replies. Maybe someone here can help me. On a Cooper S, has anyone moved the mufflers to the sides and mounted a skinny spare tire where the plain Cooper's tire sits? It seems like an easily doable thing. I hate $300 run flats and the thought of not having a spare when I am 300 miles from civilization.
Anyone?

Choose REMUS exhaust. That's my advise.

I was looking at the Alta Performance R53 Intake System Version 2.0 6 Speed for my '05 S. They have lots of mods available. I was also looking at the Borla exhaust which is really nice looking, but expensive. I'll look at Remus and Milltek.

Thanks!

Okay, the Remus is actually more expensive than the Borla. Can't tell how much the Milltek exhaust is. Anyone have a link to a website where you can see pricing for that?

Average Miltek system runs about $999. The Borla and the Magnaflow systems are quite loud in my opinion. Borla has always been known for using less packing in the muffler and it gets louder and louder. The Miltek is one of the best systems I've seen. The Scorpion that Bav Auto sells is also pretty nice for the price. The Remus can be found at a heavily discounted price once you find the right site etc. Remus systems are generally quieter and more conservative in terms of flow and performance gains. I've had their systems on past MBZ and BMWs. I'm currently running the Invidia system, which I found on ebay for about $550 shipped. It has a really cool looking titanium tips and the sound is pretty deep. You can find clips of all these systems on YouTube.
