2012 JCW Upgrade to GP2

I can't believe it's so quiet here!

If I wanted the same (or better) suspension mods as a GP2 on my 2012 JCW, what should I buy?

I would say mini will probably only supply GP parts to someone with a VIN for a GP.

Coilovers would be your best bet

Does the diffuser fit? I thought they had re-moulded the rear GP bumper

It fits on fine

No cutting at all

It bolts straight on
