Honda's UK dealerships will begin to offer MUGEN tuning parts


Honda dealerships in the UK will be introducing a new line of parts and accessories that are all close to the heart of Honda tuners in the country. Beginning with eight dealerships around the UK, Honda announced that it will launch the MUGEN Original Parts Programme, a program wherein a number of dealerships will start offering MUGEN parts and accessories for interested customers.

Granted, the initial parts will only cover the current Honda Civic Type R - among the parts include body kits, forged aluminum wheels, performance brake pads, quick shift kits, and sports suspensions - but Honda has made it clear that as time goes by, more and more MUGEN parts and accessories will be available to a wide variety of Honda models.

Despite being a relative newbie in the UK market, Honda is confident that MUGEN products will deliver the same level of enthusiasm and excitement that it has given to Japanese tuners for over 35 years.

Colin Whittamore, chief of MUGEN Europe, said, "We are delighted to be teaming up with some knowledgeable and enthusiastic Honda dealers who will bring MUGEN products to a wider audience."

"Through this program we are looking forward to attracting new and existing customers to experience why MUGEN has been renowned for many years as a world leader in motorsport."

Eight Honda dealers across the UK have launched the MUGEN Original Parts Programme, to supply Honda owners with a range of tuning parts, accessories and merchandise from the company’s long-standing engine tuning partner.

The programme launches with special authorised MUGEN parts for the current FN2 Civic Type R, including forged aluminium wheels, performance brake pads, quick shift kits and sports suspension. The range also includes body styling kits for the Civic.

The dealers involved in the programme are:

Avonvale Honda (Midlands)
Bristol Honda (South West)
Inchcape Honda (South East)
Brayley Honda (Home Counties)
Two Mills Honda (North West)
Phoenix Honda (Scotland & Borders)
Ewens of Cornhill (Highlands)
Donnelly & Taggart (Northern Ireland)

Colin Whittamore, from MUGEN Euro, said: "We are delighted to be teaming up with some knowledgeable and enthusiastic Honda dealers who will bring MUGEN products to a wider audience. Although MUGEN has been in Japan for over 35 years, we are a relatively new company to the UK market, and outside of motorsport and serious tuning enthusiasts, we may not yet be a household name. Through this programme we are looking forward to attracting new and existing customers to experience why MUGEN has been renowned for many years as a world leader in motorsport."

Parts requiring fitment by Honda dealers are covered by a 12 month/ 10,000 mile warranty, and other accessories are covered by a standard manufacturing defects warranty.

Original MUGEN parts for other Honda models will be introduced over the next 12 months.

Wow! Mugen has a nice package deal here. I bet there are a lot of people that will be interested contradict to you opinion. BTW, It’s a great bonus that it has a12 month warranty!

Well, not really excited since this car manufacturer focused in modifying the exterior rather than upgrading the figure performance. I’m really looking forward to see monstrous engine!

well factory tuned and accessories is way far better than the after market parts. its well fitted and the paint job is impressive.

Wonderful! I like the looks of that Civic generation, but the torsion bar. Seriously, Honda.

IMO honda UK should offer it as an optional to the cars rather than offering it piece by piece.

Well, I think through that program they are almost expecting and looking forward to attracting new customers to experience why Mugen has been renowned for many years as a world leader in motor sport.

well there are a lot of after market parts on auto shops.. but the mugen is the very best parts for Honda Cars.

well this is a good new, i hope they offer it in a low price..
