Brembo Selects Lohen As Main UK MINI Technical Centre!

Lohen has been selected as the main 'Brembo Technical Centre' for the BMW MINI brand in the UK. The appointment comes just months after Lohen was named Best Independent Specialist by readers of Modern MINI Magazine and further supports the company’s growing presence in the MINI-tuning scene.
Brembo is a world-renowned Italian manufacturer of vehicle brake parts and kits, of which elements can be found on many models of cars from Fords to Ferraris. Their spectrum ranges from fit-for-life road-car parts up to track and racecar elements. Each market is carefully catered for, with months of research, development and testing going into every product. Brembo endorses only a handful of specialised centres to officially fit their brakes and has picked Lohen to handle the UK’s growing MINI market.

Martyn Pearson, Brembo HPK’s UK Sales Manager visited Lohen’s Eccleshall premises to confirm the selection and go some way to explaining the reasons for choosing Lohen. He commented, “Brembo’s selection of Lohen comes from a need and want to link ourselves with very specialist centres as approved places to fit our brakes and kits.”

“We have worked closely with Lohen over the last couple of years and are impressed with their knowledge and setup. We feel it’s necessary to tie in with people at the top of their game because we know they will offer the type of quality and customer service inherent in everything Brembo puts its name to.”

Martyn continued, “ We’ve recognised Lohen’s passion and interest in MINIs and are pleased to be associated with their work. They have professional premises and employees, a skilled outlook and can handle all aspects of brake fitment. I would be happy to send any MINI customer to them, not least because the quality of work would be excellent. We would only endorse Technical Centres if we were confident their level of workmanship would be exceptional and not invalidate any warranty we provide: we know Lohen is capable of that.”

“From this point we’ll look to train and support Lohen in every aspect of our brakes and kits, to provide the technical back-up necessary to deal with any questions or issues. This is a good platform to go forward: Lohen is Brembo’s ideal sort of partner and we hope to share in, and contribute to, their growth and success.”

Lohen Director, Andrey Magiy, is thrilled with the appointment. He said, “We’ve been working with Brembo for around 2 years now. I regard Brembo as a major player within the performance braking industry and Lohen believes their pedal feel, quality of kit and variety of options gives enormous flexibility for their intended use.”

He continued, “Major improvements include us housing a caliper clearance jig that will allow us to check customers’ wheels and recommend spacing information. We’re also being given additional technical training on installation, bedding in, service and replacement to further improve what we can offer to our customers.”

“I feel very happy that our co-operation with Brembo is growing stronger,” Andrey says. “We will look to expand our product range and services even further. Lohen feels Brembo is an ideal partner to help us provide braking solutions from the fast road customer to the track day enthusiast. We are delighted!”


Lohen's MINI One goes Green! No, wait, Orange?!




Variety is the spice of life, as they say, so we've upped the ante to show you just what you can achieve with a simple change of colour. Our Black MINI ONE is the consummate example of a wolf in sheep's clothing with what's under the bonnet. Sporting an LO3 package that creates around 150BHP, you'd be forgiven for thinking it's all revs and grunt. However, we've tackled the fanciful side of our ONE with a quick adjustment to image!

The idea was simple: to turn heads. And you, too, can do the same. It's relatively pain-free to change your stripes, not least if you speak to Lohen and get us to help. So if your decals need brightening up, or you just want a general injection of colour, why not give us a call? It started as a fleeting notion but soon became reality and is proof-positive that a change is as good as a holiday.... well, nearly!

Featured Product - GRS Enlarged Intercooler

This month we're detailing the GRS Intercooler for the Gen1 Cooper S. The larger area and thickness of the GRS Intercooler increases performance over standard. It's worth bearing in mind that after changing to a reduced supercharger pulley, an efficient intercooler becomes even more important as boost has already been increased, which means that more air has to be cooled. The intercooler is ISO 9001 quality assured and tested to 100 psi. It comes with a fibreglass diffuser to improve air flow over the intercooler, a feature unique to the GRS.

Carefully selected ‘tube’ & ‘vain pitch’ ensure the core is right for this type of top mounted intercooler. The core is the same thickness as the original to allow maximum air flow from the bonnet scoop, but to achieve greater cooling it has a greater surface area.

The end tanks have been specially designed to insure a ‘ram air effect’ is achieved through the core: this achieves maximum cooling. ‘Boxed end tanks’ with sharp edges do not work as well as ‘Tapered end tanks’ as the charged air can become very lazy.

If you're looking to uprate your engine and haven't considered something like this, it is well worth you having a second look. If you need any more information, please contact us at [email protected] or call 01785 859999. The intercooler is £399 inc.vat and can add between 8-10bhp to your Gen1 Cooper S.
