Rev increase but no speed increase

Hi guys just joined and pooped a little post in the newbie section,

Just today bought an 06 Mini Cooper s with full jcw kit . On the test drive I never noticed anything, purchased it , did approx 80 miles of the drive home and decided to stop off in the services then resumed my drive home.
After stopping at the services when I would put my foot right down on the accelerator whilst in any gear the revs would increase quickly but the car wouldn't pick up speed with them, they would then slowly drop back down and meet the acceleration if that makes sense?

Could this be the clutch slipping or something else? I've owned auto BMW's before but never a manual mini.

Hope I've explained this well enough for someone to possibly help?

Thanks Darren

Sounds like a slipping clutch, what is the mileage?
Could be due to clutch wear depending on mileage or oil on the clutch due to a leaking rear main seal.

This is cost of R53 Cooper S clutch supplied and fitted by 1320 Mini:

Hi mab01uk, the mileage is just on 104,000. I looked on MRclutch as they are local to me and got a quote of 479 including parts, labour, vat and a 2 year or 20,000 mile warranty. But apparently there are some bad reviews out there on them?

If it is the original clutch then I'm not surprised it needs replacement.....a Mini specialist would be best but if you prefer local like MR Clutch check their feedback from customers carefully and make sure they use genuine BMW parts on a JCW Mini - lots of horsepower!
