I ordered back in May (I think). and they reckon I should get delivery end of Feb/March.
This hasn't changed even though the release date has been put back. They said BMW are going to make sure they get enough cars to fullfill all their current orders on time (unless you were expecting delivery before Jan - I guess - dunno ? ).
What is really frustrating is I cant even find out what US dealers are going to be authorized?
it is quite frustrating and waiting that long for the unvailing will hurt JCW sales. Im sure others like myself are getting frustrated with the lack of information and the extreamly long waiting periods.
JCW needs to give us a bone. At least have a magazine write a article including real information.
I'm guessing BMW are still deciding how to Market this in the US, after all it's not released until next year.
The wait is difficult, I should know . I don't see how the unvailing will hurt JCW ? They could have released it like the Cooper works, quite small, a few magazine articles or they could do what there doing big world wide release with BMW.
I would imagine that 99% of MINI and prospective MINI owners have never heard of JCW. With a big release this number is sure to increase.
If you search some of these forums, you will find certain info has been released. Remeber the Cooper S info was only released to the Press a couple of months before it went to market. Under that assumption, I would guess you might start to see official info in Oct/Nov.
You just know the wait will be worth it
JCW Works S, DS/DS, Chilli, DSC, HAB, HK, panther black/lapis blue (Cloth) S0007
Well the way i look at it is your not paying £3500 for a 200bhp+ MCS, because the tuning options are out there or soon will be to have that sort of power for half the price. Your paying £3500 to have a 200bhp+ MCS plus a 3 year warranty. If tou take the cheeper option and your engine self destructs you'll be kicking your self for not taking the JCW 'S'. Well worth the money just for the peace of mind IMHO.
Live for now. 'cos it only happens once
MCS, DS/B, Pepperoni Pack,Not any more, lost job, now got an L reg
1.7 turbo diesel astra. ARGHHHH!!!
Doesn't sound too impressive... it would be nice to know some in gear 50-70mph times etc. to get a true sense of the additional performance.
£3500 is a lot of cash. That kind of money would be better spent on a light weight flywheel/clutch combo, coilovers, light weight wheels/tires, and exhaust and better brakes, IMHO of course. That way the engine would still be relatively stock but the performance would be comparable.
