Might just need to shop around, it's not hard, just takes time. I bet you could find a MINI owner who has done them local and could do them for you for less? Coilovers > Stock suspension. Getting Ohlins soon and after driving MINIs with them, they are great. Hopefully, Ohlins comes out with some soon for the Gen 3 MINIs.

That's theft! The install doesn't take long at all, I did the springs on my JCW in a couple of hours, coilovers would take about the same time, aside from adjusting the ride height and dampening. That's a terrible deal. I would either try to do it yourself, or shop around. A shop in my area did a coilover install on my last mini for 3-400 bucks.

Can any vendor out there send me an installation manual for JCW coilovers? I have a coil compressor from "back in the day" still looks new, it's my body that's rusty.

That 2nd link BeerChan is way to low for my taste, looks bottomed out.

O.K. so who's got the best price out there for the Factory JCW Pro Sport Chassis 33502361197 ? I might have my local mechanic do the install instead of the dealer.

Just pulled the trigger on a JCW Pro Kit. Did you folks out there get buy without the chamber kits, if so how/why? Fronts are on backorder so I'll try without for now.
Thanks to ECS Tuning!
