Prices are rising worldwide, not only at our own gas pumps but even for the bits and bobs which keep our beloved Minis running. British Motor Heritage (BMH) is the world supplier for factory original quality sheet metal for the Classic Mini and other British cars. As BMH’s sole authorized distributor in the US, Mini Mania recently received notification of price increases across the BMH range of products.


Their announcement read in part as follows:

Dear Don,


Price increase – Effective 1st August 2006


Following an intensive review of the profitability of our business we have identified the need to generate an acceptable return across the whole product range.

I am therefore writing to advise you of a price increase effective 1st August 2006. 

Prices for BMH and Steelcraft product are increased by 5% effective on all orders from 1st August 2006. The increase applies equally to the Suggested Retail Price and the BMH Prices.  [An additional list of parts requiring more than 5% was also included.]


In addition BMH bodyshell prices will increase effective immediately by a minimum of 10% …


Yours sincerely,

Jon Yea

Managing Director
