i.e I buy a dark silver 2007 MCS with the chili pack and after a month of having it I decide I would like to have the PDC, MFSW and the comfort control thing (don't think I would ever go for this option). Would it be possible?

If it was possible would it cost a lot more than what mini say they are to add on your mini from new?
You would only be able to add exterior/interior bits or plonk on JCW accessories. Any spec'd stuff as you want (PDC, MFSW, comfort control) can only be added at factory.

So you really have got to decide whether you want to wait for the perfect used MCS to come or order a new one to your spec which you'll get within 8 weeks. I went for a new one as my finances got far better and could afford what I wanted. Very happy with my Astro Black MCS .

PDC could be added after market.....

I'll sell you my Dark Silver, June 2007 MCS with MFSW, DSC, Chilli, Black roof, 17" flame alloys, chrome mirror caps, DSC, LSD, Auto-Dim Interior Mirror, smoker pack (but dont smoke), Exterior mirror pack, visibility pack, heated mirrors / windscreen, rain sensor / auto lights on, colour line rooster red, matching rooster red bits on seats, Auto air con (not part of chilli), dark head lining, darkenened rear glass, First aid kit & triangle. JCW aero body kit and ipod kit + TLC....only 8.5k miles

Plus it's been to new ministuff and had the full stereo upgrade with tweeters added...and a parrot bluetooth kit.

Probably selling next month as I have a new job and will be getting a company car...if interested PM me.

Not an exact matching....but I paid 22k or so for the car and will be taking a big hit... would hate for someone else to do same without at least warning them....
