It is with extreme sadness that I advise that my good friend and stalwart of the Mini world John Smidt, the original and only Mini King, passed away last night after a long battle with cancer.

I dealt with John to get the brake lines for my early 850, the correct ones for that year were not listed on Mini Kingdom.
He got them made up for me, great quality and fit at a good price. It was a pleasure to communicate with him.
I wouldn't normally comment being "just a customer" but his service was brilliant

Thank you
