England JCW tuning upgrade - What does it all mean??

Hi,

I have a 2007 Mini Cooper S

Going through my documents I have found a certificate among it confirming a John Cooper works upgrade.

I originally thought it was just the body kit and exhaust but looking at cert and engine this seems to confirm a JCW tuning has been carried out.

But what does all this mean to my car I have bought??

Also should I be informing my insurance as I have told them I have a Cooper S which I thought I bought.

It means the cars been modified from standard and is now quite a bit faster than it should be, so if you dont tell your insurers you might no longer be insured so you do need to point this out to them now.
