Replacing the original plastic expansion tank, the DaveFab R53 kit mounts to factory mounting points and comes with all the parts you need for a neat install. The original plastic Mini tank is prone to failure, multiple heat cycles under pressure can lead to splitting of the bonded plastic halves and leaking lids, this is the perfect solution.

    A great product to replace the terrible plastic factory item that fails with age. Love the sight glass, the decent cap and cool black crackle finish. Super easy to fit as well. I’m looking forward to more MINI bits from you guys in the future.
