When I placed my deposit I contracted to receive MSRP. When I went in to pickup the current deal was 3.9% or -$1500. I paid by check and received the $1500 off. It was a local promotion to move hardtops. I just lucked into it.

Hey, that's 5 miles down the road from me at Crown MINI of Richmond . I've been driving by there lately to see if they had a WC50. Must have come in and gone out pretty quick

You should bring it to the Cooper Vineyards event on July 17, so I can ahhh and ooooh over it!

I currently enjoy my 09 JCW . I would be adding this to my jcw collection. Whats the take on ability for this car to hold its value as i hear the GP has? Thanks allot for your thoughts.

This is Connaught Green which is different than the BRG that is currently in production. Connaught is what BRG should be IMO so that is also why you probably like it.

I called around when they announced that 50 were coming. Richmond had one coming so I jumped on it. What's the Vineyards event?

Last night I opened the "secret compartment" in the dash to find an extra set of number plates (417) to go in the side scuttles! Hopefully I'll never lose one but it's nice to know I have the spares.

Wc50 418

I'm happy to report that my friend and I drove to Mini of Baltimore and now WC50 number 418 resides in Pittsburgh, Pa. Thanks Graham for your help and it was worth the drive. Mini of Baltimore was fantastic too!

Your right WRX XB9R I can't believe they don't put the JCW suspension on the WC 50, well more money I have to spend, I guess they figured that out! The car sure does turn heads I think people already know its "that special one" Mini made... lol!
