JCW 2008 - only 141 kW ??

Hi guys,

I just bought Mini Cooper S JCW (first registration in 02/2008)

And the seller claimed 155 kW (as most of them have), but in the papers I see that it is actually only 141 kW, I am little saddened by that, although I have to say the consumption is very good.

What are the engine differences between 155 kW and 141 kW ?? Can I upgrade?

Your MINI is a Cooper S with the 141 kW JCW Engine Tuning Kit. JCW models with an upgraded engine and transmission weren't available until July 2008 builds.

Would you say my engine is more reliable than the 155?

I have to say the consumption is really low.. From 6L/100 to 9L. I can go for 5.5L/100 in constant 80km/h

Please help

Do you have book with technical specifications for this Mini (1.6, 141 kW, 02/2008) ?

I bought the car abroad, and now they have trouble importing it, because they are missing information about consumption, max speed etc. (

I am looking all over the web, but only found 155 kW version or others.
