Help identify a factory JCWHello,
Today I will go and see a JCW I may buy in the UK.
However prior to that I want to clarify a point about painting.
According to the pictures attached, may this JCW full red painting be from factory?
This is the first time I see full bumper painted the same color than the car
I am wondering if the car has been repainted...
I know the black lines around light are wrapped
Thanks for your help

Rage

Looks like Chilli Pepper Red to me.

When in doubt, call a dealership with VIN in hand.

wheel arches and side skirts that are normally black plastic can be purchased with a primed option where the customer could have it painted to match the body color. This is what the owner likely did, or could also have been requested upon purchasing the car.

Looks like a factory one with the brakes, and the options. But people always add those things on at the dealer level. Easy way to check and most people dont add is the little checker sticker on the dash. Most people dont know about that on the early jcws.
