Yes it is.
What can you tell us about the F57S dripping with JCW parts?

I bought the F57S for my Wife, she saw it at the lot and liked it when we were there picking my 2006 R53 JCW after the new JCW Crate Engine was installed. We went back the next day and bought the F57s, her and my daughter are convinced they talked me into it.

It started its life as a NEW F57S

Before we even walked out the door we bought a few JCW trinkets: Mats and the Tire Tread Keychain Loop, JCW Key Surround.

I went home and did a quick bit of research, we decided we wanted:
  • JCW Tuning Kit w/ Carbon Tips
  • JCW BBK
  • JCW 534 18" Wheel set (up from the 17" wheels)
  • JCW Red Stitched Auto Shifter
  • JCW Carbon Fiber Hood Scoop
  • JCW Carbon Fiber Mirror Caps
Car already had a few JCW Trinkets:
  • JCW Steering Wheel
  • JCW Door Sill Logos
We also added the Click and Drive MINI Phone Holder, funny thing with that phone holder, the instructions show the wiring running all the way over to the Passenger Fuse Panel to connect it, how retarded. I removed all that and routed the USE wire so that it will just plug into the USB port to interface with the stock info/tainment setup.

I also bought a BurgerTuning JB4+ for the car (SHhhhhhh dont tell the dealer) as all the other parts were installed by them to maintain the warranty. The Burger box is kinda neat, it turns the fuel level indicator into a boost gauge momentarily if you start making boost then goes back to fuel level. Very Stealth. With the JB4+ I got the Bluetooth Module and downloaded the iPhone App so the phone in the holder acts as a bunch of gauges.

Where did you get those wheels? I thought they only came with the I/O cars.

Nope they are in the JCW catalog they are called the 504's. funny thing I ordered them and had never even seen the I.O. model till afterwards, so clearly I thought they looked good and so did MINI.

They are 534's I believe : https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=XP73-USA-05-2018-F56-Mini-Cooper_S&diagId=36_1846

I have not seen many MINIs with them either, most JCWs or JCW+ cars have the style 506's
