AC Schnitzer is based in Aachen, Germany (AC is the numberplate moniker for the area) and although better known for tuning BMWs it has also been turning its attention to Minis in recent times. Schnitzer is responsible for the design and set-up of its creations, but sources the parts from well-established suppliers. So the springs are Eibach, the dampers Bilstein, the exhaust Remus and the body parts are produced by the same supplier BMW uses.
