Default Spike_jcw...r56 jcw - 19th August 2015, 03:00 PM

Going to start a thread on my R56 JCW. I have a number of OEM upgrades I want to make to the car, and will detail these in the coming months. To get things started, here is a picture of the car from the dealer website when we got it last year. I have a lot of parts already assembled, so I just need to get on with fitting them all!

The car has pretty much most of the things I was looking for, but as always, trying to get the perfect car is extremely difficult, so I had to make do without a few extras.

With this being our third MINI, its easy to say that we love it

Very nice, love those discreet stripes on black. Going to the Portrush show?

I really like the stripes. Prior to getting the car, I wasn't really fussed on stripes, but the JCW ones are very nice.

Unfortunately I'm away next weekend, or I would make the effort for Portrush. I would like to go, so hopefully next year!

Picked up a delivery during the week, and fitted the first upgrade: Cravenspeed Dipstick.

I have to say that it is a vast improvement over the standard OEM dipstick, and a great addition to the engine
