OREO is sitting low now

Spent the afternoon at Achtuning in Redmond getting H&R coil overs installed. She had the sport suspension prior and I'd have to say the handling difference, as well as ride quality, is quite an improvement.

I was a bit disappointed in how inaccurate H&Rs website and literature was on the coils though. They claim they'd go from .62"-2+" in drop. Well, the front of the car is at max ride height and it's 1.25" drop under stock. The rear is .75" to eliminate the reverse rake the Clubman normally has.

Overall I'm quite pleased. Sorry for the iPhone picture. I'll post better pictures when I put the summer shoes back on.



One other bit of positive news is I spent some time talking to Achtuning and they are interested in becoming a club sponsor. They primarily deal in aftermarket performance parts for Audi, VW, BMW, Porsche, and MINI. They carry NM products for the MINI in stock. I'll likely pickup a NM strut tower brace when I go back in a week to get an alignment done (after it settles a bit).

Who can I put them in contact with at the club to get this setup?

Oreo's looking good.

Dale Subitch is our sponsorship coordinator and I'm sure that she will give them a call. Thanks for supporting the club.

Love the look. I think it may look faster now.

Looks very nice. And it would be nice to have another sponsor on board.

Yes, another sponsor would be great for SS Mini and the sponsor. I really appreciate any sponsor suggestions like this.

I thought the same but no issues at all and it's got a decent slope to it.
