Like the look of the rave arches, really looking into buying a set but would like to know if they wrap around under the rear bumper like the midland ones, or whether they stop just short like W&P ones?
Anyone know?
Cheers

Does anybody have any pictures that could help me decide who makes the best pattern Sports pack arches?

I need to replace mine because they are a bit chewed up and don't fit very well. Don't know what make they are - came with the car.

Had a look at Uttoxeter today and saw two different sets on offer (there were three but I can't remember third).

Huddersfield - fibreglass - didn't like them but could see that they could probably be made to fit quite well because they are so stiff - e.g body filler can be used.

Minisport - they had some floppy plastic ones - £59. They looked ok - but I don't want to waste £59 if I find that they don't fit or they "buckle" near the fasteners.

The thidr set might have been old school mini's - not sure.

Anyway I would'nt mind trying to get some at Stamford next week.

Thanks

Steve

Standard Australian Mini arches. They are similar to group 2 arches with a lip for teh sill trim but are fixed onto the original wing lip.

Replicas are avaliable from Australia but are expensive.

this is a bit of a late reply so may no longer be any use to you mattsbmw, but someone might find it useful?

my mini with 6x12's and group 5 arches (i know i know, it needs to go lower to close the gap)

I have the alumminium Arches and sills on a Mini Neon, but ideally i'd want to get wider arches (possibly miglia ones i have seen on ebay) but the problem is the cost of the wheels and which wheels will fit... any recommendations?
Thanks
