Launch preview at BMH Gaydon, of the upgraded Mini MPI (Multi Point Injection) range for 1,997 with drivers airbag, seatbelt pre-tensioners, door side impact bars and front mounted radiator. Despite Rover's original plan to end Mini production in 1,997 due to new European safety and emmisions legislation, BMW's new investment in the Mini and John Cooper's insistence on this last update finally got the MPI into production in 1,996, extending the Mini's life by 4 more years until the launch of the New MINI in 2,001.
