Added the JCW grill, JCW wheels, JCW carbon fiber shift ****, and JCW badge. Next will be the JCW strut brace. I also added an S rear spoiler. I determined that if BMW can badge a 3 series with M logos as part of a package and it's not an M, then we can do the same with a MINI. When I bought my 2008 MINI the dealer catalog listed all JCW components and accessories as options for a base MINI. The exception was the tuning kit of course. I like the looks and performance of the JCW parts. Here's my non - S mods.

Also like that I did the whole job myself - and got to see firsthand that this is a quality exhaust. Fit was perfect. Under 2 hours start to finish.





Old exhaust...



What silencer did you put, I've been looking at the magnaflow 14851 that you recommend? Thanks for your advice and help.

Cooper S front bumper, grill, and grill surround. I was lucky to find a 2007 bumper in Lightning Blue Metallic, so no paintwork was needed!

Homemade VIP2

Created my own VIP2 (resonator delete) using a piece from my Integra gsr cold air intake. The existing tubing slides in nice and tight and the end that leads to the air filter clicks in perfect. Great way to save 150 bucks.

The grill fit fine with the original hardware/pins on the top. The bottom was a little loose but nothing that effected it greatly. I used the original grill surround as well. I used Plasti-Dip on it. After closing the hood all was fine.
