Signed up today guys and am I need of some advice already

I have bought an 03 MCS JCW and am wondering how can I tell if it genuinely is a JCW?

Under the bonnet it has:

JCW air box
JCW plaque on the rocker cover
JCW inter cooler surround
JCW Exhaust
JCW Program Stamp under ECU cover

The injectors are white not blue. It does have the red dot marking on the head. The supercharger pulley is an aftermarket one.

The rest of the spec is as follows:

Aero kit
JCW Alcantara 3 Spoke MFSW
JCW Gearknob
JCW Floor Mats
Sat Nav/Harmon Kardon Upgrade
Full Leather
Adjustable Coilovers
JCW brakes
Xenon Lights
Rear Strut Brace
GP Rear Spoiler

I absolutely love the car to bits. Came from an e46 330d.

Is there anyway I can be reassured it definetly is a JCW as the owner has lost the certificate. It also doesn't seem like 200 bhp to me. Hardly any torque and struggles past 90 ish?

Any advice would be great, would love to know how a JCW should go like compared to this one.
