    KW have made some!!!

    These are the pics of the V3 prototype from German tuner Gigamot's tees car - they should be available to customers within the next 6 weeks I am told.

    No dates or info on the V1 or V2 though! I was hoping to go with the 'basic' V1's, but the wait may get the better of me depending on the price of these!!

    Fingers crossed things speed up! :)

    Looks like MINI switched from aluminum back to steel on the rear trailing arm on the F56... Wonder what the difference in weights are?

    Yup and the springs are in front of the shocks and you cannot fit a coil over shock in the rear. The shock is so close to the tire. I have seen it in person.

    Update:

    The following part numbers are available from KW at present, with an estimated lead time of 4-6 weeks. All coilover options listed offer offer lowering FA/RA of 20mm-45mm. I can't help but think that doesn't sound particularly low???

    The V1's offer height adjustment only whereas the V2 and V3 will offer height and also rebound adjustments.

    The details are as follows:

    For cars WITHOUT the optional EDC:

    Variant 1 Inox (102200AG)

    Variant 2 Inox (152200AG)

    Variant 3 Inox (352200AG)

    For cars WITH the optional EDC:

    Variant 1 Inox (102200AH)

    Variant 2 Inox (152200AH)

    Variant 3 Inox (352200AH)
