Picking up tuesday morning.

Just had a strange call from my dealers. They had come to fit my JCW suspension today, and it turned out the kit they have ordered was identical to the suspension on the car, that is the sports suspension.

They had spoken to germany who told them that the JCW is fitted with the JCW suspension when sport suspension is specified. Now i know this not the case - The sports susp. is the same as that on the cooper s. They couldn't get anywhere with it, so i gave chris at woodmans a call as i knew he'd sold the JCW kit and springs before. It turns out mini have forgotten to list the JCW suspension as an option on the Works JCW car, so ive had to give parts numbers from chris to my dealer so that they can get the correct bits sent overnight for fitting tomorrow!! Not the salesmans fault at all, but their parts man really should know these things.

What a palaver! Still, good of chris to help out when hes not even getting a sale from it - If my dealer doesnt get it fitted in time they wont be profiting from fitting it late and ill take my money up to Woodmans.

Saw your car down there today whilst having the strut brace fitted (they did not charge me) looking sweet.... can you give me the part number for the suspension kit please as I am seriously thinking about having this done before the 25th Oct.

Thanks

No worries!

JCW Suspension Kit: 33.50.0.429.708
Front Spring (need to order 2) - 31.33.6.782.729
Rear Spring (need to order 2) - 33.53.6.782.731

Spoken to them again this afternoon and im confused - it turns out they did have the correct kit, but not springs. Also, they said the rear (i think may have been front) spring part number was diff for the works car to the one above - it was only 1 number different. If you go down there dont be to reliant on the parts dept. If you want to be sure of numbers speak to Nick Evans in sales as he will be able to give you the details of what i've had.

With all this confusion though i'll be carefully checking the p/n on the roll bars and struts to ensure everything is what i've paid for. Think i posted somewhere in a thread in the 2nd Gen suspension section how much i've paid so you can use that as a refrence when negotiating your price if you go ahead! Can't remember now and im in Budapest so dont have the info with me.

Hope helpful!

Talking My blue at last

Been and gone and done it!

Have ordered my laser blue john cooper works. Have been reigned in with my spending and just gone for the following:

I have a few days to add anything else but cant afford it.

Chili Pack
Hi fi
Punch leather
White roof and mirror caps

Would like to add!

JCW suspension
Strut brace
Multi-function steering wheel(not sure about whether worth it though)

and thats about it. Will have to make my mind up by Saturday when I finalise things. Have already got to £24000 though. Cant wait to receive it, have been told mid November.

I would reccomend the MFSW. I do miss having it..Especially if you have the usb bluetooth option then you get voice dialing and cruise control. I believe it can be retro fitted at nearly £500-00.

I too have ordered the laser blue JCW, its was the only colour I wanted. I specced mine similar to my R53 MCS but made sure I had MFSW as been in others with it, and found it very useful, as you get cruise control aswell.

Ordered mine last week and been told I should have it by end of Oct, but the last week seemed to go that bit slower.

I didnt realise you get cruise control, sounds better value now! Think I will go for it, have a few days to decide, it will be a long wait, cant wait to see pics of yours!
