NM Engineering’s Upper Tie-Bar is designed to reinforce the already
stellar Gen2 MINI Cooper chassis. Installation reduces fore and aft, as well
as side-to-side chassis flex during spirited driving, which helps to
eliminate unwanted geometry/alignment change. This results in better
steering response and better handling.
Attention to detail and performance are NM Engineering’s forte and
this part does not disappoint. The 6061-T6 aluminum mounting pads will
eliminate strut tower “mushrooming” be reinforcing the upper mount and
is attached to mounts studs with shouldered long-reach nuts to make sure
that the bar and front suspension is secured by more than just a few
threads. In addition, when you look at the underside of the pads, you
will notice two machined pocket that accommodate the upper strut bearing
locator pin on either side while concealing it from view. Finally, the
simplest, yet most overlooked feature may be the twin mounting bolts on
each side that attach the bar to the mounting pads. Most others use a
single bolt to secure each side of the bar to the mounting pads. The
problem with that, is no matter how tight you cinch that bolt, the bar
can still pivot at that point rendering them ineffective against chassis
This is a fantastic product brought to you from Neuspeed which is
market leader in Audi/VW and other import tuning since the mid 70's. The
