NM Engineering’s Upper Tie-Bar is designed to reinforce the already stellar MINI Cooper Gen3 R55 R56 R57 chassis.
This NM Engineering bar fits all Gen3 MINI Coopers including F56, F55, R57 with both the 2.0T and 1.5T engines. The mounting bases and tube ends are machined from solid 6061-T6 aluminum billets, and not some cheap welded together sheet metal pieces. The bar is formed utilizing a 1" round 6061-T6 aluminum tubing with 1/4" thick wall for the perfect balance between stiffness and weight. While others use a single bolt design we use two bolts to solidly secure the tube end to the mounting base. The single bolt mounting still allows the assembly to pivot and skewed, rendering them ineffective against chassis flex, no matter how tight you cinch the bar end bolt.
Fits the following Gen3 MINI models:
F56 2014+ Hatchback Cooper and Cooper S
F55 2015+ Four Door Cooper and Cooper S
F57 2016+ Convertible Cooper and Cooper S
