I had to drop my Countryman off to have the thermostat recall today so I called into the showroom to have a look at the new JCW
Countryman that had just arrived. So naturally I took it for a drive.
First thoughts ..... It doesn't feel all that different from my own. It felt very smooth, the new clutch much lighter than mine and the gear box too and this was a car with only 12km on the clock. Yes there appears to be more power but not a huge difference (maybe because the engine was new). The ride was what surprised me especially with the 19" rims. I love the body kit and exhaust.
I was worried that I would return it wishing that I had waited before buying mine but that is not the case. When I'm looking at a change over then yes I will consider it but not until then.
Anyone else had a similar experience?
