Clubman S JCW Brake Upgrade?

Has anyone attempted to upgrade their regular Clubman/Clubman S brakes to JCW brakes? Is it as simple as ordering and installing JCW calipers/rotors/pads when doing a brake job? If so I would be tempted to do it when it comes time to do brakes on my car, as it would only be a marginally more expensive than just replacing the stock brakes....

I would think it would more than just “marginally” more expensive than a normal brake job. You aren’t typically replacing calipers when performing a brake job....

Yes, that's true. And buying new rotors would be more expensive than just machining the existing ones. But in the grand scheme of things, if a front brake job is already $300 and a front brake job including upgrading to JCW brakes it $600, that would be very tempting.

As an example the kit for all four corners is $1600 for the F56 JCW, plus install and potential clearance issue.

It's a great upgrade as we have installed a few, but it does need to be coded after install.
