    That is quick, but I think that H&R are the supplier of OEM springs for MINI. Gives them a big head start.

    I'm thinking of buying a set.

    Or not sure if I should wait & do it properly with coilovers!

    That said, it would be a good 4 - 6 months till coils, but I could have these now!

    That makes the car look so much better as a first step. I am sure the aftermarket companies are going to make a ton of money cosmetically making this car look better than BMW did.

    Front bumpers
    Hoods and headlight conversions
    Smaller taillight conversions

    Just for starters but I hope the don't go the way of the whole JDM excessive scoops, vents and wings on every part.

    Pic looks more like a 60mm drop. 30 would still give WHEEL GAP on the F.

    Wish I did, but the Paceman's sloping roofline sets it apart. Just imagine Da F w/ 4 doors or wait for the new Clubman.:wink:

    No arguing, this thing will really need those springs, or better......coilovers.

    ^^^ Yup and I don't think it was much work for H&R to pull these off the shelf and put them on the market quickly.

    They have been making spacers and springs for years for many cars including BMW.
    Now with the new MINI being even more BMW this was easy for them because they already have the parts that fit all BMW's. :smilewinkgrin:
