    What’s wrong with your N14 ?
    The cars in front are New MINI Scotland

    I’d imagine engine mounts are the same. Not sure about the harness

    Had the motor for over a year now but only got it for a stop gap and a wee run around but have heard too many stories about the N14 reliability and was told the N18 was far better but even they have issues so was just asking for any info, thank for getting back anyway,
