Out in Oz jus passing the time on honeymoon, had no idea that JCW Clubbie was on sale here untill flicking through a GQ mag.

Promptly arranged a test drive and whoaa what a car, much more composed and refined in ride quality and set up than our R53JCWs'. And felt every bit as quick with x3 in car and aircon on - only 453K on clock so couldn't really thrash it to the redline

The brakes were super sharp too - got a few strange looks from the salesman everytime I tapped em':D.

So 1st impressions were it's a great drivers car and yep I'd deffo trade in my JCW for a Hotchoc version, price is pretty good to approx $56K (Aus), with MFSW, Privacy glass, PDC Climate Con, Chilli (no alarm though) all as standard.

Summer here too .... remind me why I'm coming back to Blighty tmr???:)

It's out *everywhere* except the UK (and SA). Grrr.

And with the factory on a month's shut-down, plus the big downturn in UK car sales, i half expect MINI to quietly cancel the car I ordered 7 months ago.
