A Turn-key Solution for Adding Conventional Gauges to Your MINI
It has been well established that the Mini lacks vital instrumentation. Here is a kit that provides everything you will need to remedy that situation.
Fits the following models:

2015-2020 F55 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop 4-Door

These kits include two gauges of your choice along with everything required to install them. You'll get the FlexPod to allow you to discretely and securely mount your new gauges on the steering column of your Mini Cooper. As with all FlexPod products, the installation requires no permanent vehicle modification. Our high quality machined aluminum mounting parts and Marshall Instruments gauges look stock once installed. That means you'll never have a reason to remove them... but if you did, all elements can be removed without damage to your Mini. The same is true for the included wiring and adapters that allow the painless installation of the sending units for the gauges.
A Preemptive Defense
An oil pressure gauge can give you a lot of information about the health of your vehicle. By establishing a good baseline knowledge of your Mini's oil pressure while the car is running well, you can be alerted to any issues before they become costly problems. Low oil pressure could be a sign of a leak, worn out oil, a low oil level, high oil temperatures, or a damaged oil pump. By discovering these issues before they lead to complications or engine failure you will be much safer in a Mini that will last longer. This gauge from, Marshall Instruments, runs on a stepper motor and includes a peak recall and warning feature. With this feature, you can set your gauge ring the alarm when your oil pressure has dropped out of your desired range. Using the included Tapless Adapter you will be able to install the oil pressure sender in line with the factory sender to ensure good reading and reversible installation.
A boost gauge may not carry as many vehicle health benefits as a oil pressure gauge, but it is easy to install and a fun gauge to have in your supercharged or turbo MINI. The boost gauge is much more active than the pressure gauge which will have a relatively steady reading when all is well with your Mini. In contrast, the boost gauge is giving you the constantly changing PSI output of your supercharger or turbocharger.
