For those who haven’t heard of the name DuelL AG this brand is the Connoisseur of the Mini aero world and for those that know the brand name you already know how important they are to the world of Mini, so for those of you that don’t know of this incredible brand let us explain who they are.

Based in Nagoya-City the brand was launched in 2006, starting with enhancing the Gen 1 Mini, building some absolute world class exterior upgrades and tuning, it wasn’t long before they turned their attention to the Gen 2 with so many chassis variants it was hard to keep up with their aero enhancement programme as they catered for the R56 Hatch, R55 Clubman, R57 Cabriolet, R58 Coupe & the R59 Coupe Cabriolet, you name it they produced it from full aero kits to various splitters, diffusers with complete bespoke interiors, all parts that improve the looks of the standard Mini, one R conversion they have produced which is a real looker is as full aero pack for the R60 Countryman which we love and we will build eventually as a company demo.

With any high quality aftermarket tuner who base their business on one brand its always important to enhance and work on the current chassis and with DuelL AG it no different, it’s been not only intriguing but exciting to see their take on the Gen 3 F series and they haven’t disappointed, for us they have produced some of the best looking Gen 3 conversions the market has to offer, if not the best, showing the Mini brand how it’s done, their body kits, components and accessories are made to fit like the OEM factory parts, which makes them incredibly natural feeling once painted and installed, like they left the factory that way, like a real enhanced factory version, which is a credit to the company and what they are doing.

Even though we are late to the Duell AG party we feel very privileged to be a part of their future, the Gen 3 is already a huge part of the VAD and Mini Flares market, so just imagine this, our wide flares on a Gen 3 hatch with the Krone Edition V3.22 JCW Front Bumper, vented bonnet sitting on our signature 9.5x18 and 10.5x18 flow formed wheels lowered on H&R Suspension, the ingredients for the ultimate Gen 3 that we really need to build, just need to find the Mini chassis for the complete overhaul, watch this space.

Even with the launch of our Gen 3 Mini flares the Gen 2 keep on growing with more cars globally getting the VAD mini treatment, which is a great feeling having all of the global Mini builds tag us as they take shape.

One particular R56 that was in the planning stage and got us really excited was Emily Bakers Cooper S JCW, the colour caught our attention straight away Kite blue, along with Emily's enthusiasm, just seemed to be the perfect owner & car to showcase our product, and she has wasted no time at all hitting the show scene already displaying the build at numerous shows around the UK.

Collection day for Emily Baker's R56 Cooper S wide flared beauty

Emily certainly did her homework, traveling down to our Birmingham fitting centre Dentcraft to check out the flares up close and personal, which she got to do by seeing not one but two R56 Minis that belong to Dave the owner of Dentcraft Birmingham, they were an instant hit and Emily booked her stunner in for surgery.


We kept in contact with Emily whilst she waited patiently for the work to be carried out, getting sneak peaks of her wheel choice and all the plans she had for the car and we must say on collection day the finished results blew us all away, the colour the wheel choice, everything just works in harmony, such a credit to her, the vison she had imprinted was right on the money, we don’t think there is a better colour choice of wheel or design that would suit this build any better, the Rota kyusha, measuring 9x17 with +15 offset for the front & +8 offset for the rear wrapped in 245/40R17 Avon tyres just fill every ounce of space the new wider flares have created, with the Gunmetal centres and gloss back lips look right at home against the Kite Blue Bayswater limited edition paintwork.

We don’t know what is next for Emily’s little beauty, but what we do know is we are on board for the long haul, we hope she spams us forever with this one and as she has her own personal photographer on hand in the form of Boyfriend Matt, owner of Matt Andrews Photography we seem to think the pictures will not be slow coming through.

One of our favourite builds has always been Geoff Clements of Clements racing, his amazing Pepper pot white JCW, it has all the bells and whistles and its having even more engine performance related goodies added, we were so pleased when Geoff chose to wear our brand of flare to such an incredible Mini, especially with the way it looks, and now with Emily joining the VAD family made us really excited that yet another incredible looking Mini wanted to wear our brand, sorry Geoff your beauty was Numero- uno for a while, but Emily’s little stunner is sharing the honours of the best UK VAD clad Mini, roll on the photography spam.

hey do say better late than never, as well as our own saying that perfection takes time and these Gen 3 Mini flares most definitely fall in to that category and boy oh boy have they been worth the wait time.

Due to the huge success of our Gen 2 flares it was only a matter of time that we would launch a flare set for the Generation 3 chassis and with looking what is on the market we are extremely glad we did, with our signature look now ready for all the F56 & F57 Gen 3 chassis.


The great thing about the Gen 3 is there is no cutting of the OEM metalwork like there is on the Gen 2 chassis, if the conversion is done sensibly like our own demo Cooper D Hatch, the new flares have to be bonded on as you can get behind the fixing points like you can with the Gen 2, so it’s a simple case of bonding and clamping each flare.

We fitted H&R 35mm lowering springs with some 9.5x18 3SDM wheels, wrapped in 245/35R18 & 255/35R18 Nankang tyres and all we had to do was roll the rear metal work slightly so there is no scrub on the 255 rear tyres and the overall finished look is pretty stunning, this look will just never get old, and just gives the new Gen 3 the look it needs.


For the customers looking to track and get the most out of the wheel fitment with these flares, you can fit up to a 9.5” wheel with a +10 offset for the front and a 10x18 wheel with a +10 on the rear with 245/35 & 265/35 tyres front and rear to suit, It’s amazing how these wider flares transfer the look of your basic Gen 3 Mini.

Next up we plan on tooling up for the Mini R60 Countryman and the R61 Paceman, as these doesn’t seem to be anything available for these 2 Mini Chassis, we plan on changing that.
