    What are the choices out there for front swaybars for R56? I'm looking to get something equivalent to the H Sport compettion front bar for R53.

    Thanks!

    If you have the non-sport suspension, the front bar is only 22.5mm; the JCW bar is 24mm RealOEM.com BMW R56 Cooper S Sports suspension JCW, and at only $85 list, a real bargain. It fits, without contacting the top of the control arm bushing bracket at full droop, or endlink to driveshaft at full compression.

    I think the more important question is why do you want a front sway bar? The stock MINI already understeers horrible, a bigger front bar will only make that worse.

    That's the only one I've found so far. Anything else out there?
