    I still cannot get over the difference in my 2008 to this wonderful 2012 R56 the ride is like night and day! So smooth and she seems like she just wants to go! It’s really amazing? Anyone else have that feeling before?

    Not sure why I don't think much changed between 08 and 12 but maybe they went with a more progressive spring rate on the later models. My wife's 2014 R57 rides nice a little stiff, it is a mini. I cant compare it to my 2012 R58 because it has coil-overs

    My sweeties R55 rides pretty well. We added Bilstein B4 struts, shocks, plus new strut mounts & new bump stops. At 92,000 miles it was due. Rides great, some of that may be due to the longer wheelbase of the clubman. Glad you are enjoying your new MINI Homazur.
