Only the last ones look like they're for the MINI and I'm pretty sure they are V1's like you said.

None of those are V3's for the MINI.

The first two are for another car. (the second one's don't have chapman rear struts even) The third one is a pic that madness uses for all 3 product images.

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the V3's for the MINI don't come with the reservoirs. They'll probably look much like the V1/V2 with an additional knob for compression settings.

Someone had pics posted of v3's on NAM but I'm having a hard time finding them again.

I'm with you on that one every place I looked I came across a different referance image. I figure they will look very much like the V1's or V2's. I was trying to find our if the mini does or doesn't have the reservoirs. They should arrive end of the week so I guess I'll find out then..
I was nable to find any info on NAM either although I too remember a post regarding them a bit ago...

Is that kit just a front air, so that you can raise the front to clear things, or is it all 4 corners?

There's two versions: HLS2 for the front only and HLS4 for all 4 corners

Yah, Air Cobra is a special line for Tanabe. Basically Tanabe's with little bags up front. It's different then the KW's. It's meant to allow you to park lower.

The KW is just the fronts I believe, but you can get rears with an upgrade. And instead of driving around with the bag inflated you drive with it deflated (it doesn't add to the spring rate).It's not really used to allow you to go lower like bags because it's lowest point is still the height you have to drive everyday.
