Your new generation MINI Cooper S has no oil Pressure or oil temp gauge. That leaves it is up to you to add one yourself. Sadly, adding one can be difficult and dangerous because it requires you to drill into the oil sending unit.
Save yourself some time and money and hassle and Instead twist this Tapless Adapter into the oil sending unit and run the line from there! There is no need to drill into your vehicle. This makes any changes easily reversible if you ever need to return the car to stock settings.
Space in the turbocharged second generation engine is at a premium. In order to ensure that you will be able to mount your sensor, the Tapless Adapter is threaded on all sides of the hex. That way, you will have an open thread facing you no matter what. All of the other will be capped with included setscrew plugs.
