Marks JCW 210

Thought I would introduce my new, well new to me MINI. With only 54k on the clock this was too good to miss. Mechanically its had everything it has ever needed done, on the outside it just needs some loving.

This was traded in, I took it home one night and put 30 of fuel though it
That whine was addictive
Jan 2005 Cooper S.

Spec as follows.

Chili Red / White
Leather Gravity Panther Black

Chili Pack
Visibility Pack
C0ckpit Chrono Pack
Automatic air conditioning
White Bonnet Stripes
Power Fold Mirrors
Chrome Line Interior
Heated Seats
Multi Function Steering Wheel
Head Airbags
Warning Triangle & First Aid Kit
Park Distance Control (PDC)
CD changer for 6 CDs

When it arrived at the dealers, who I happen to work for now it had the following fitted

JCW Aerokit
JCW 210 bhp kit
JCW Suspension

Plans are to tidy it up and keep it as a toy. Its away at the paintshop currently having the front end repainted and theres a few dents need removed

Pics:








Thanks for looking

I'll keep you all up to date.

Original owner didnt want them fitted, preferred the stealthy look

Actually the best stealth MINI would be a base model, with the plastic wheel trims, with the JCW mechanics in it, if you dont want to stand out.

Mine you I suppose you could always stick a MINI ONE badge on yours instead, saves 70 on each JCW badge and then looks extra stealth?

Updates! :yahoo:

Got the car home from the paintshop complete with new grilles after a thorough wash of all the door shuts and under the bonnet. Wheels were taken off as well. They need a refurb so this was a quick tidy. It was brought into the garage where the fun would commence








So around the doors were deterred, meguiars ultimate compound used to bring things back to life and a coat of colonite wax applied.

The rear JCW bumper stickers were well past it. So off they came!



So later in the week my mate Noel arrived with his vast array of cleaning materials and machine polisher.









All looking rather good!

Interior was stripped, seats out and cleaned with various leather cleaners and conditioners. The last owner had a little terrier so this was essential to remove the white hairs that seemed to appear from nowhere!


Brought the car into work to keep its full MINI Service history in place. Oil Service and Brake Fluid Service along with a vehicle health check. Car has been given the all clear.

So a few new parts fitted

Replacement aero bumper decals


Checker Interior Mirror Cover


Got my wheels refurbished and I've been cleaning bits and pieces to bring it up to standard. Last weekend was a big one at an annual Mini Weekend.












I adore this car the more I drive it and the more bits and pieces I clean and change/replace

Rear JCW badge, the first time the car has had one fitted. The first owner chose not to put them on. I have contacted the original owner (and sold him a 5Dr Cooper S :: ) so will get that shortly too



a little bit OCD of me. I managed to source some rear lights that had the clear indicator lense rather than the orange which most Cooper S's and facelift MINI's have. I also got a John Cooper Works dealer sticker when they had their garage in East Preston in Sussex :tr:

Comparison shot


50/50


Done

JCW leather dashboard and downtubes added this week! Rather nice I think








I also got some bonnet stripes fitted, along with the inserts around the fog lights done in matt black vinyl, just makes the aerokit look a bit better I always think
