    Autocar's verdict...


    Re: Mini Cooper JCW ???

    Hi BCJ

    The new JCW will be available for the R56 Mini Cooper S very soon. Price will be substantially lower than the JCW was for the R53 models. It is a basic remap, and exhaust in essence. Will be around R22,000 excl VAT if memory serves correct. It will be 147kw which is less than the R53 JCW which is 154kw but with more torque.

    Thanxx Rich C!
    Looks like youve done your homework Mike.. ? Gonna upgrade?
    Not very happy with the 147 but it should be ok cause of the small body...
    BTW is that really just 22k (Ex vat) over the price of a standard CS??? Not too bad

    Morego offers a kit for the Cooper S; 216hp and 235lb ft vs 189hp and 184lb ft for the JCW...

    Re: Mini Cooper JCW ???

    Too bad we don't have that flexibility here in SA. Yes it is only 22k (approximate) as I have said the work that needs to be done is very minor.

    The old JCW involved larger injectors, new cyclinder head, larger supercharger etc. etc.

    Not looking at getting one, just keeping an eye on what's available

    Re: Mini Cooper JCW ???

    Minor is a bit of a understatement....Although i understand that thats only the stage 1 kit and others will be available later.

    One of the tuners that should offer a kit here is AC Scnitzer for sure...Got this pic, I think it looks quite nice

    I've had one for about 2 weeks. And the new JCW tuning kit fitted for 1 week of that. (just finished running it in)

    A good friend warned me that it was more fun than his 997 C4S. I dont know about that, but I can say its more fun than my 997 C2S!!

    One hell of a fun car! And so easy to extract that fun!


    Re: Mini Cooper JCW ???

    More fun than a C2S???
    Well if you think so lol

    Gotta say though, the thing with these cars is you can drive them like crazy without really risking crashing and rolling 25000 times... Perfect day to day fun cars IMO
