Think I will have to wait at least a year for a factory works as just spent over £26k on my S Works - Think a factory works would top 30k if it had nearly the same spec as mine- you have to draw the line somewhere!

What wheels come as standard on factory works? - can you choose black ones ?
wheel not that much thicker, cant comment on whether it would obscure the rev counter more but i doubt it.

The wheels are the challenge design ones made for this car and the challenge rac car. You can pay extra for the JCW range of wheels one of which is black

Costing around 26.5k. Could of been much more. My dealer has knocked good percentages off all the JCW parts (10-25%) plus 5% (not so good) off fitting. The OTR price it 20.9k. The seats would be another £2000 fitted from a dealer. The nav another 1400. Could easily have cost over 30grand. I just wanted to keep it well below that otherwise i might have wished id just bought a 135i!!
Im holding back around £1000 though for a top line audio upgrage hopefully fitted by Mikeythemini.

I ordered one in March, but have had to cancel due to the news that the Clubman won't be out in the UK until Q2 2009 (and the cynic in me wonders if they'll even manage that).

OTOH, there is a chance that 'll be ordering an EU spec Clubman Works next week.

It goes without saying that I am deeply, deeply jealous of Rogan. I'd not have quite the same list of options - mine would be Chilli pack w. red half-leather, colour-line red, JCW steering wheel, universal remote, chrome line interior, parking distance control, hifi speakers and sat nav - plus voice control if I was feeling flush and knew what it actually did; and then there are a few other bits that might have to be added to an EU spec car unless omeone at MINI has a change of heart over the Clubman.

I don't think the Chili pack is worth it. You can spec the different bits you want for cheaper I reckon.

The wheel is slightly thicker than standard, but honestly it is sooooo worth it, IMO makes the drive feel a bit more sportier, I will be getting one for my S cab asap. If Im honest I cant say that I noticed whether it obscured the rev counter more than the stock wheel, but I wouldnt have thought so as I always tended to use the digital mph on the rev counter rather than the speedo.....
