    Specifically regarding a MINI Cooper S but could be any car.  There are two factory suspensions offered direct from the assembly line (regular and sport suspension)  and one suspension that can be ordered and installed at the port (JCW suspension) before reaching the dealership.    If a MINI Cooper S on the dealer lot has a regular suspension, can the dealer upgrade it to either the sport suspension or JCW suspension and it still be legal for stock class?

    Short answer yes.

    The rules allow you to change anything that could be ordered from the factory (or port) that way, but any package must be changed as a whole. The sport suspension could be ordered as a standalone option (I know this is true, we did) so you can just change to the sport (or JCW) suspension. More, you only need to change the springs and the front bar. Shocks and rear bar are free, so don't need to be changed.

    To be clear, if you upgrade to the JCW suspension, one of your ARB's + end links need to match the JCW part numbers. Front or rear.

    A. Substitution, addition, or removal of a single anti-roll bar and supporting hardware (brackets, endlinks, bushings, etc.) is permitted.

    Also to note, the JCW suspension has different/shorter bump stops in comparison to the sport suspension. As long as your bump stops are equal or shorter than the JCW bump stops, they are legal. I simply cut my sport bump stops a bit shorter than the JCW ones...
