You could always cast your arches, but I never suggested that

true. but i heard a rumor that someone in the MINI community is in the works of actually putting a better fitting set of wide arches out on the market very soon.

as far as the front bumper, i'd try to work the arches into an S bumper... the cooper front (even shaved) just doesn't look aggressive enough for me. the pics in the photoshoot thread kinda proved it (at least for me)

good luck with the mechanical issues.
i was chatting with ivan and we were talking about maybe turning the bumps in front into some sort of brake duct. orrr maybe i just shave the whole damn thing

@griff-haha i need to get out there and chill with the easties soon.

I would shave them, aren't they a bit high on the bumper for brake ducts?
I think that shaved would look good to be honest.
Also, are you running the lower half of the "S" front bumper on the Cooper bumper?

What is going on with the center lower section of the bumper?
It looks more aggressive than that of the cooper part.
It is looking great!

I'm not at liberty to confirm nor deny that this rumor is true

but it's someone who has a spoiler on the market now.

It's already posted publically that johnny was gonna copy the mhw's and sell them :p

Rumor has it that a dub company is doing some too. We'll see how that goes

Still surprised that people haven't caught onto the mhw arches. They've been around for like 6 years now :p

Honestly that horrendous picture of the kit made me forget all about them existing. Shipping a $500 or so kit from overseas would also be a hassle. Something more domestic would just be easier.
