I've had a search on here and google but I can't seem to find one on here (sorry if I'm being retarded and there's already one on here :thumbsup: ).

I'm currently trying to figure out what type of arches I want for when I restore my mini and it'd be a lot easier if I knew what some of them were instead of just going "oooh those are nice" and not having a clue what they're called!! If we do have one can someone point me in the right direction, preferably with a link :thumbsup: if not, then I'll start one :thumbsup:

Hey Hannioli,

Heres a Pretty good site to start bit research and help you to work out which look your going for? Not the cheapest but gives you enough info to search around? Doesn't have all the groups on but its a start?

Hope this helps!

Hmmm - I'm not too sure about that 'german sportspack' arch. German MPIs got the same arches as UK ones when they opted for Sportpack...

Hey, Could anyone confirm that the group 2 extra wide arches are the same as the Group 2 race or are the different in size? >_<

Once you've fitted sportspack arches can you fit group 2 without ant body mods!

Not really - sportspack arches are huge. You'd have to weld up the screw holes and paint.
