Lohen and KW Automotive: From the very early days of Lohen offering MINI customers lowering springs, KW Automotive was at the top of the list as a world-class manufacturer with parts to benefit MINI drivers. Times may have changed, with KW stepping away from springs to concentrate more fully on vehicle dynamics and coilovers, but the quality and passion for the very best aftermarket suspension remains the same.

Over the years Lohen has been proud to work very closely with KW Automotive in offering the best street, track and race coilovers to all generations of MINI. We have worked with Variants 1, 2 and 3 plus Clubsports and even used KW's race coilovers on our MINI Challenge and Endurance MINIs. In fact, you'd be hard pushed to name a Lohen MINI that hasn't benefitted from KW's superb aftermarket suspension setup in some way.

Alongside this, Lohen has invested heavily in staff training, attending KW's Product Training and Vehicle Dynamics course at their factory in Germany. The course opened our eyes to the endless possibilities available from KW's coilover range, but also allowed us to get the very best results from their coilovers and improving our customer's MINI driving experience and (hopefully) improve efficiency and ultimate lap times. We are confident that if you're looking for expert suspension setup on your MINI, Lohen's product knowledge and expertise will set you apart from the following pack.
