I was looking for the thicker wheel found on the GP, with red stitching. Does anyone have the part number for this specific wheel?

I'm curious to know whether or not a skid tray was included under the engine on production GP2s and whether this part will fit other R56s.

That happens to be the ordinary JCW steering wheel. My car already has this one (I'd ordered the JCW interior option).

The GP wheel is thicker (comparable to the all-leather JCW accessory wheel), with red stitching.

I just received this info from a dealer that it is actually the same wheel as the JCW but either in leather or alcantara the part numbers are
leather: 32300416250
http://parts.miniofsouthatlanta.com/...300416250.html

alcantara: 32300416251

Bram, hope this helps.

This is the JCW Leather wheel that is normal thickness but has a red stitching on the inside. Found on newer JCW's and JCW Countryman.

Same design except for the red stitching found on the GP2 version? I'll wait for that one to come out. I've seen one in a newly delivered car on Saturday and it looks really nice with the red.

ECS you confirmed what I posted. It is the same wheel minus the red stiching as seen by both of us using the same part numbers. Thx

Question Is there a retrofit kit for the GP2 brakes?

Hi Way,

By chance do you have specs for the Brakes in terms of how much clearance is needed for them to fit and a complete package price for the brake kit (Front, Back, Lines, Rotors, etc.)? Please do let me know.

ECS if you by chance have the answers to this please feel free to chime in as well. Thanks.

That sucks that you lose all the control/buttons if you switch to the GP wheel.

The GP seat belts can only be installed in 2012+ cars from what I understand.

You don't have to. You can swap over all the controls (and airbag module) from your present wheel onto the GP one.

There isn't a good spec, that is why I started the wheel fitment thread as it is all determined off the spoke size as that is what hits the brakes.

Also for those wanting it, we just got the GP Strut tower braces in stock today and can ship today too.

To my knowledge, the GP2 wheel hasn't been released by MINI yet so there won't be a cooresponding part for it until it becomes release by MINI like there are for the seat belts and strut tower bar, etc.

Way, can you feel a difference between the GP strut tower bar and the regular JCW bar? For only 20 bucks difference I think I'd prefer the GP bar.

Also what's the part number for the GP bar?

Talking

The actual cars have already been brought to market and sold by Mini, so I don't think we should have to wait for any release of the part numbers, since they'll be made available as replacement parts for vehicles on the road, at least. If all these other "GP model only" part numbers have been published, the steering wheel part number should be available for reference as well (even if the wheel is currently on backorder, for example).

@WayMotorWorks

Is there a huge difference between the JCW vs GP Strut Brace?

Does anyone know how much the weight of the GP Wheels? Are the cast or forged?

While I understand your logic, what we've seen released to market (i.e. the diffusor, strut bar, wheels, seat belts, etc.) is only a small portion of what is on the car.

For instance, I was at MINI of Plano last week having my car serviced and naturally spent the majority of time in the parts department after looking at their lot of GP2 waiting for PDI. I asked him specifically about the Recaro seats, and he mentioned that they do not have the ability to order those parts (even though they and us have the part number) because they haven't been released for public purchase by MINI in Germany.

To your point about the part number availability, they brought one of the GP2s into the service bay for it's PDI, and when they got to greasing the coil over springs, one of the techs came into the parts department looking for that grease. He gave the guy the part number that was listed to be used in greasing the springs, and there was absolutely nothing in any system for that number.

So obviously while some part numbers have been published, others haven't been and others aren't even in the system yet. That's all I'm trying to say.

Understood. I'm willing to wait since I just picked up my new "Justa" 4 days ago, but eventually do want that steering wheel and the red trimmed floor mats as well. :-)
