- German Sportpack

Ok, one last try: these are NOT 'german sportpack' arches... German MPIs with 'Sportspack' got the exactely same arches as any other MPI! The arches pictured were fitted to some LEs from the SPI era, like 'Silverstone', Mini 35, Silverbullet etc. - but not only on the german market! Eventhough it seems they were more popular in germany than in the UK. But as far as I know they were available in the UK too - via Rover.

Examples:
German edition Mini 35:

Silverbullet:

ABS Motorsport call them 'Group 5 bullet':

Spot on Asphalt!

Although i also call them "german sportspack arches" (its become a bit of a generic name), it is useful to say that they pre date the sportspack mpi minis. My silver bullet is a 96 SPi, i have also seen the arches on a 96 spi blue star.

I enjoyed reading the broshure on my car!!! Although I wonder what ever happend to those wheels on my car?!

Ok, thanks for that... i was hoping to get some on my clubman after the restoration and didnt have a clue where to get them from... they just seem different to the normal sportpack arches as they have no grove where the bumper sits in on the front arches

Thanks Matt :lol:

Quick Question:

Can I fit Group 2 extra wide arches without any body mods and can I fit 5x12" Revolution RFX wheels with a spacer under them with out it looking stupid?
What spacer would I need?
