miniJust a quick word for all those in the US waiting for this. It looks like the JCW Strut Brace has officially been released by MINIUSA and is on its way to dealers as we speak.

The strut brace (P/N 51 71 0 395 853) will retail for $320.00 and should be available next week. It’s been available elsewhere in the world for several months now.

Now, what the a strut brace actually accomplishes (besides looking totally trick) on a car as small and stiff as the MINI, is anyone’s guess. But who are we to question someone else’s bling!
