collectible of the day: New MINI Performance Manual

We previously featured another MINI book by Tim Mundy: You & Your New MINI: Buying, Enjoying, Maintaining, Modifying.  His second MINI book is this New MINI Performance Manual published in 2008.

Another Haynes book, New MINI Performance Manual is a hardcover guide with 160 pages of information on the MINI engine, transmission, and running gear.  From the book description:

Since its launch in 2001, the New Mini has been a spectacular sales success in all its major markets, carving out its own identity in a marketplace full of increasingly bland small hatchbacks. It is a car that still turns heads, and has inspired a burgeoning aftermarket tuning and accessory industry, leading to the availability of a wide range of both official and aftermarket tuning packages. Written in down-to-earth language, this extensively illustrated manual is a practical enthusiast’s guide to realistic Mini tuning, providing advice on how to make the best of the options available.
