I don't think there are any from the factory, but there's plenty of aftermarket stuff.

Well the JCW kit is more aggressive than stock if you mean that by "beefier". They use a shorter spring with more spring rating and not sure what type of struts they use. I sell both JCW and DINAN but i lean more to Dinan b/c JCW stuff is over priced even though i make more on JCW items but sell more Dinan.

My vote goes for H-Sport's suspension bits for the MINI. Not badged brand X like some others [ahem], but actually engineered and tested to perform BETTER than what you're taking off! The H-Sport Springs, and Competition sway-bars are bar none (pun, ha!) the best pieces on the market for the MINI. The Springs lower most MINI's about 3/4" front and back, so it's tasteful and still practical. The Springs improve the MINI's handling by using a firmer rear coil, which reduces understeer and makes the MINI more neutral in the corners, as well as reducing body motion overall. The Sway bars are the only tubular chrome-moly pieces on the market, and have adjustment holes to tune their stiffness to your setup desires.

If that wasn't a plug, I dunno what is! [sm=Awwww.gif]
Cheers,
Ryan
