You seem pretty confident you are getting these beauties.

ECS Tuning said they will start offering these soon....wonder what the price will be...hmmm
Just wanted to let you know these are available now.

There was some parts that were on BO and waiting to be produced. Also we have the correct Factory MINI H&R springs with them.. Those were hard to find.

We also included the install hardware in the kit. Mfg Part# 31306858041KT

Will this kit work properly on an R58? Just out of curiosity.

Do you guys at ECS have a similar kit that would fit my 2012 JCW Clubman?

We have not had anyone test this on the Clubman, Just the R56 and R58 platform. Based off the weights and the Clubman sharing suspension with the R57 Convertible on some suspensions, others they mostly share on the Gen2 R56-R59 , i bet this would work fitment wise but the ride in the rear might be dampened to a softer rear since its for the GP2 . You can adjust ride height , but i dont know if it will be to stiff in the rear.

Closest would be the 14 PSS , the GP2 has set dampening. The B16 PSS10 if you want adjustability. Or you could get those GP2 bilsteins a shot.

No, you should not need spacers, unless the wheel is not factory and has a weird non MINI size offset.
