It seems logical that the age-old axiom "great things come in small packages" was imported to America from Europe. Few vehicles have ever lived up to that byline better than the BMW Mini Cooper. This incredible vehicle is both nimble and powerful, and the supercharged 163-HP engine almost demands a new BORLA® stainless steel Cat-Back™ exhaust system. The unique posture of this race-bred European saloon touring car is well documented, and complimenting BMW engineering and high output engine with the free breathing mandrel-bent genuine BORLA® Cat-Back™ system with BORLA® custom-tuned performance muffler gives this little parcel of dynamite some real attitude.

All BORLA® exhaust components are tuned for maximum output from any other aftermarket performance upgrade.

BORLA® features aircraft quality high quality austenitic stainless steel (superior to 409 or aluminized), mandrel bent tubing with race-bred straight-through mufflers, unduplicated great BORLA® sound of power, backed by an unsurpassed written Million-Mile Warranty. Genuine BORLA®, see it, hear it, feel it... then you too will know why Winner’s Choose BORLA®!
