The Shop

The Helix Motorsports headquarters is located in the beautiful Roxborough section of Philadelphia. The 5700 square-foot shop is equipped with a Mustang MD-250 two-wheel load-type dynamometer, two lifts, and a close-knit team dedicated to enhancing MINI and BMW performance. In addition to designing BMW and MINI performance parts at the Roxborough shop, Helix also specializes in MINI and BMW repair in the Philly area.

The company was founded in 2001, shortly after BMW released the new MINI in Europe. Before the MINI became available in the United States, the owner and founder of Helix was already in the process of designing MINI performance parts for first generation models. Helix was the owner of the first left hand drive new MINI in the country, importing it from Gothenburg, Sweden in November of 2001. Since its inception, Helix has dedicated itself to producing top-quality performance parts for the MINI and BMW.

One of Helix's greatest contributions to the MINI and BMW aftermarket is the Helix intercooler. The original stepped-core design, built to increase flow, both through the core and across the face of the cooler, has revolutionized the intercooler market for both MINI and BMW. The BMW intercooler and MINI intercooler designed by Helix are part of an evolving catalogue that also includes:

 
  • Helix MINI Short Shift Kit
  • Helix MINI Cold Air Intake
  • Helix MINI Adjustable Control Arms
  • Helix BMW N54 Intake
  • Helix BMW 135i and 335i Turbo Upgrade
Helix has teamed up with top-notch auto manufacturers to assure the consistency of perfection in all its aftermarket parts.  You may view the performance parts for MINI designed by Helix and other distinguished innovators by visiting the pages on this website for first generation MINI upgrades and second generation MINI upgrades.  If you own a BMW and feel like boosting the performance of your ride, check out the available options for 135i upgrades and 335i upgrades.  (Note: many parts are compatible with naturally aspirated 1- and 3- series models.) 

If you have a winged or blue-and-white roundel on your vehicle, rely on Helix Motorsports for BMW and MINI tuning, testing, installs and repairs in Philadelphia.
