Default JCW Clubman sold, R57 arrives Tuesday - 1st January 2017, 03:30 PM

So I'm keeping it MINI, the JCW Roadster N14 went last February to be replaced by a very well specced JCW Clubman N18 which leaves us in 2 days. It's a great car but, I never felt completely confident in its reliability, constant replacement of brake disks, drive belts, tyres and we were not using it as a track car or driving it excessively hard. I wasn't sure about the F5* model styling especially at the front end but decided to try a Cooper rag top. I was surprised in a good way having had early Gen 1 and 2 Convertibles when I worked for BMW, this is a major step up in every way. I won't miss the JCW power, this little 3 pot mill means you have to drive it harder, but I've a feeling its going to be more involving fun.
