Hi, i own a 2012 mini countryman r60 sport 2wd. due to my condition I had to get a car close to the ride height of that mini or a suv (hate suvs). i like my mini but its harder to get more power out of it due to bmw restricting things. i do have a tune on it. i drove a lot of other cars with some ride height to them but they all fail in comparison. I am also a big subaru and mini fan. 


Since i need a car with the ride height of my r60s or an inch lower(the lowest i can go), i either stick with my r60s and eventually trade it in for the JCW r60 or get a STI with a lift kit.


I am a fan of the 4 door and the hatch but I would prefer the sti hatch. i have tried to compare the stock ride height of the sti hatch to my r60s but i cant find anything.


if anyone can help me or knows both cars please help me out.


the jcw r60 and an sti are the only cars i will ever consider buying. not into other suv's or crossovers.

They do make strut top lifts for those cars. Usually only an inch, but bigger is possible. But even with an inch, you can fit bigger tires to give it a bit more height as well.
