Sytner’s MINI cavalcade

To celebrate the launch of the third generation MINI, one of the UK’s largest automotive retail groups – Sytner BMW – arranged a MINI convoy to Plant Oxford and a party for its lucky guests writes John-Joe Vollans. Sytner MINI High Wycombe was chosen as the location for the assembly of a night cavalcade of MINIs running in convoy to the MINI plant, with an opportunity for guests to be among the first to see the new Hatch. A celebration of all that’s British awaited those who took part, with a fantastic set from The Big Beat playing Brit rock and pop classics, selected from a Spotify playlist setup by Sytner and added to by the convoy participants. All this was held in the old Morris factory and in the surroundings of the 2013 ‘100 years of car making’ exhibition. A heady mix of nostalgia and optimism was circulating, as were the glasses of champagne! Aside from the festivities, there were plenty of chances to get up close with the new MINI, which by all accounts was received very favourably indeed. For a full impression of the new car, see Sarah’s first drive report on p27 of the May-June 2014 issue.

KW for Paceman

KW’s Variant 2 and 3 coilover kits have been developed to suit the R61 Paceman (2WD and ALL4).

The V2 kit is height and rebound adjustable, but the V3 has these elements and 14-way compression damping (for driving dynamics) allowing for an individual suspension setup for different uses. The rebound damping is adjusted by a spindle at the end of the piston rod. However, the V3’s extra compression adjustment is carried out at the lower end of the shock via KW’s patented multi-purpose valve which gives a wide range of adjustment. Overall, the front can be lowered between 25-60mm and the rear, 25-50mm, giving an enviable stance.

The V2 kit is priced at £1,227 and V3 at £1,512 (both inc VAT). To find out more, visit: www.kwautomotive.co.uk or call 0870 990 7536.
