Hi there,

Newly registered Mini owner here from Belgium. I've had my Mini for 5 years now with great pleasure, after having owned many other classic cars in the last 20 years, ranging from Lancias, Peugeots and even a Saab. Mini is truly unique and a joy to drive.

I ran into some administrative issues following a tightening of the regulations here in Belgium and was looking for information when I came across this forum, where I'm sure I can raise my questions to the right experts. Mostly to do with engine swap, but I will post that in a separate topic.

Cheers!

Hello - yes you'll find a wealth of help and advice on here. I have found it invaluable.

Good luck with your engine swap. What is the plan?

Thanks Richard; need all sorts of info on returning from a 1275 to a 1100 and to what extent all the accessories are interchangeable (clutch & gearbox, engine mounts, manifolds, ...).
