2) A factory built JCW model with 211bhp (Launched in 2008) - This is a MINI JCW

A few identifiers to help you with yours.

A Cooper S JCW will retain it's Cooper S badge on the rear, & on the side scuttles. Likely a Cooper S badge on the right & a JCW badge on the left. There will be no JCW marking inside either. Car will have standard brakes on the front, unless they've been upgraded by a previous owner & the tail pipes will be etched with the JCW logo.

A factory JCW will have no markings on the back except the JCW badge on the right hand side. The side scuttles is standard will be a plain chrome with no badging. The dash will be have a small JCW emblem on the far left, this isn't a logo more of a checker type thing. The front brakes will be red Brembo items. The tail pipes aren't etched if I recall correctly.

Think this is correct, we owned both but it's been a while.
2007 you got both generations as we had a 1st gen 2007 with supercharger and I thought they where the one you got the jcw kit for as we nearly got a kit for ours,but got the extra power with other mods
