Here it is

I am thinking what will a JCW drive like? Because I am quite happy with my base model I have bought. It has 132K miles on it.
Because I loved the car so much I just changed all fluids. I used castrol 0w40 and I think that is the best option among all that I researched. I used fram (just because it is readily available in stores) CH10066 although I read purflux L358A is what the OEM is. I will buy that one next time. The drain plug washer of FRAM is not as rounded and flatter original one and oil will drip if you use the fram one. I would recommend buying the original drain plug washer from various online stores and keep a stock. My oil is dripping but I keep an eye on it and it is not too much. I will do oil changes quicker than usual and I am thinking in next 4K. Always always check oil, this little thing drinks oil. I did a coolant flush just because there is no engine temperature gauge, I thought to do it. Then manual transmission fluid it says lifetime but I changed it by buying my own although that modmini youtube suggests an aftermarket. Be careful that it has to be GL4

thought to share what I thought. ANy suggestions and comments are more than welcome. I am happy to learn more.
