Competition Edition was a 2006 Canada only, 1 of 64, JCW option package that was the last of the run of R53's for Canada. We call it our GP, but it's not a performance package, it's more of an appearance package that at the time was cheaper than building your own JCW.

Basically a nearly fully kitted model, limited colour options (Chili/White, Astro/Astro, Hyper/Black*) The only real difference (visually**) between a fully built JCW, is the sticker on the tach and lack of cruise control.

*#13 was a factory screw up and had hyper blue with white roof
**uses R56 hubs and brakes as it was in the last weeks of production

Who's got #13?? Sounds collectable!

Ohhhhhh, I like! Your garage looks as cold as mine, lol. I've found the quickest/cheapest way to heat it is to drive the car to the store and back, then pop the hood. Raises the garage temp by 10 degrees in 10 minutes!

Just subscribed to your channel, looking forward!

It is a perfect example of an 06 MCS JCW!
Mine is a daily, so it has the used look.
The thing is: It is a going sum na B_tch! I just love it, beats my X in every way!
Yous is meant to stay pristine, now you need a daily!
