Mpi Continuation (1997 on)
At the start of the 1997 model year, the Mini hosted more engineering changes than it had seen in many years. These were designed to comply with forthcoming regulations through to the intended cessation of production in 2000. As a result the bodyshell of the Mini Continuation (as the 1997 Mpi was known internally) was also significantly revised. The four Continuation bodyshells listed here are appropriate for UK and European models; if it is intended to reshell one of the surprisingly many Japan specification vehicles, modifications to both front valances (inner wings) will be required. These 1997 on bodyshells are not suitable for pre-1997 Minis; nor is a pre-1997 bodyshell suitable for a 1997 on Mini.
