KW V3 Suspension – Mini R58 JCW
When you already own one of the best handling cars around it makes sense that when upgrading the suspension to pick the best on offer. Kw V3’s are the ultimate road coilover. The adjustability allows you to set them up exactly how you want it. It also allows you to retain good ride quality, which can be lost sometimes when changing to performance suspension.

Mini Clubman Cooper S Stage 2 Conversion
Andrew got in touch with us regarding our stage 2 package to suit is R55 Clubman Cooper S. He was looking to make the best of the power available but to keep it reliable and conventional for every day use.
We set about fitting our stage 2 package, including the AEM intake, Akrapovic Sport Cat Downpipe and Wagner Intercooler. Andrew also opted for a Resonated Milltek Cat Back Exhaust system, providing a little more flow and a nicer exhaust note.
To make sure the car didn’t struggle to put down its new found power Andrew gave us the go ahead to fit a Helix Autosport Single Mass Flywheel and 6 Paddle Clutch Kit. This will ensure the car wont suffer from any clutch slip under hard acceleration.
Results of dyno testing show peak power of 240bhp and 288lb-ft of torque. A huge gain over stock.
Just to add the finishing touch we fitted a set of H&R 35mm lowering springs to close up the arch gap, add a little more stability in the corners and give the car a more aggressive looking stance.
