Default Roll Bar For R56 Chassis?

Anyone know anyone that makes one. Looks like the Autopower is only for the R53. They said it might fit but cant confirm. My other thing was to go with a custom one, but that increases cost a LOT.

You already made one of these threads didn't you? Weicher's sport makes one for the r56 but it didn't have the harness bar you wanted or something.

MINI-Clubsport has an r56 one but it's real serious and they still don't picture the cross bar you want: http://cms.mini-clubsport.com/index....d=28&Itemid=76

For my challenge car photos, I usually search on flickr. I'd post them here, but the photographer always gets upset.

I can confirm that Autopower's bar will fit a R56...saw it with my own eyes.

Well, there you have it.
I wouldn't have guessed that it would fit.

I decided to have my friend make the roll bar ... works out to be less money too.

Here is my ghetto rendering of what its going to look like

The rear x bracing will be bolt in so street use it can be taken out and track days put back in.
