        Trasmissione DCT a 7 rapporti
        Passare da una trasmissione a convertitore di coppia ad un sistema di trasmissione a doppia frizione DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission, NdR) è un interessante cambiamento di direzione per BMW. Un cambio epocale per una azienda che ha delegato l’uso di tali trasmissioni solo su alcuni modelli BMW M e che ora li sta anche sostituendo integralmente con trasmissione automatiche.

        Una trasmissione DCT è costosa da produrre, più di un automatico a convertitore di coppia. L’unico modo per ridurne i costi è produrlo in larga scala. Quindi ecco che questo nuovo DCT andrà a motorizzare buona parte della gamma realizzata sul nuovo pianale FAAR -WE (Frontantriebsarchittektur Weiiterentwicklug), ovvero l’evoluzione dell’UKL.

        Questa modifica avrà anche il vantaggio di differenziare ulteriormente le offerte MINI dagli altri modelli che utilizzeranno l’automatico a convertitore di coppia ad 8 velocità realizzato da Aisin.

              It was a fun touch on the Superleggera but looks corny and cringe like aftermarket tail lights on a production Mini.

                But Mini owners love putting the Union Jack on their roofs/mirrors/undies so surely the tail lights will appeal to them? :p

                After the Union Jack in the rear lights, the sportiest model of the range will be called MINI Cooper BREXIT

                  I don't know about the rest of the world but I rarely see a MINI with a Union Jack roof.

                    Me neither, but the Union Jack sidemirror caps are fairly popular.

                    It looks high end, technical and overall very nice you mean?

                    I had a look at the UK Mini website and the Union Jack roof is a dealer fitted vinyl decal at £137. I also saw lots of other roof decals i didnt know existed.
