The factory JCW Package (3AL) which also included the JCW Sport Brakes and LSD was $6,300 but it required ordering the $1,400 Sport Package.
It was a good deal - too good to pass up! Was going to buy the entire tuning kit a piece at a time from MINI. Was just about to buy just the exhaust - center silencer, rear silencer, chrome tips and clamp for $876.16 from MINI when checked Ebay and found the kit for sale. I caught the listing right when it was posted and was the only bidder during the 2 weeks the listing was up for auction. Thought for sure would get outbid at that price for a brand new kit but didn't thank goodness. If one was to buy the kit (minus certificate, tuning code, and engine plate) from MINI parts counter today, MINI USA has it currently priced at $5,280.91. But that price also doesn't include the spark plugs or injectors.

I still think it’s pretty cool that Mini offered these engine tuning kits as an option. In fact that’s really what made Mini’s so unique, you could customize them in so many ways which made no two alike.

I got lucky with mine, it’s an 2006 with the JCW factory installed, LSD and Sport Package. It’s an incredibly fun car and a relative bargain.
