2013 R56 JCW.... Should I

Hi Guys,

New to the forum... I bought myself a cheap 2005 R50 One as I needed a car quickly... Going from a 225bhp TT to an 89hp Mini One I noticed the difference straight away... But it was a cheap car and we knew what we were getting..

This got me and my wife thinking that we deff want something faster. So we've been looking at an R56 JCW, fully spec'd (recaros and sat nav) 45k mileage currently going for 14k... (Is this reasonable?)

Is there any reason why I shouldn't go for this car?
Anything in particular about the R56 JCWs that I need to know?
Common faults?
What you don't like about them, etc?

Cheers in advance
Dan

2013, 35000 miles, 10727.

Not got the spec the one you've found admittedly... but 3k for Recaros!

Agreed (sorry missed the post title 2013!) but 14k is heavy
