    For all you R56 guys that need one of these. Colin now has them available but they are just not pictured on his site yet.

    https://www.greeneperformance.com/mini.html

    From Colin; Great news!

    After Months and years of endlessly hounding Vibratechnics UK for a Torque arm solution, Its finally here.

    I know its late to market and many of you may have found a solution however
    This product is really what I would encourage for any R56 Owner.
    Engineered to provide the perfect blend of comfort and engine control I am confident it is the best solution for the R56 torque arm mount.

    Yes it will fit the Coupe and Roadster, They are the same underneath as the R56.
    **Just the countryman is a no go.**

    Pricing right now is set at $175 plus shipping.

    However If I have sufficient interest of 10 or more Ill be happy to offer a group buy discount

    I have already beta tested this on a Local car and he absolutely loves it, I doubt i could take it out of his car without having to pry it out of his hands.
    Some background on his car is that it is a 2011 R56 JCW with Intercooler, Howerton/Aquamist kit, Swift springs, Tune and rear sway bar.
    Car currently makes at the wheels 258 HP and 285 Ft pounds. and is his daily driver if I knew that he was pleased I am very confident to offer it to all of you.

    I'm interested. But, what are the differences between this and the NM Engineering insert?

    This is a complete replacement part and not a insert that just stiffens the OEM part that will fail.

    At $175 I'd say it's more of a want than a need!

    It's absolutely a need unless you want to keep buying the crappy failing OEM mounts over and over and over.

    Replaced my NM inserts with Colin's VT unit. Get some vibration at start-up, but it goes away (or we get used to it) after a few miles. No noticeable vibration at highway speeds.

    Reason I got one was to minimize engine rolling over under high torque conditions. My air hoses kept coming loose when the engine rolls --- not enough hose flexing. "Hump hoses" (have fun with that ---) help, but just slow down the loosening. 30PSI boost doesn't help either, but I'm not gonna give that up!

    Now to figure out how to measure the engine "roll", without just watching it on a dyno.
