Nice to be part of a little niche club.
Congrats! That badge is a rare piece of motoring history. You must have sold 10 JCWs in one month to earn that badge.

Those badges I believe only lasted about 2 years after the model and then they NLA them.

Did you see the recent R&T article on the Gen1 MINI? The author had some pretty good things to say and now you have one of last of what many are now saying was the best platform for the modern MINI.

A sway bar and about 30 more HP will make your car just that much better.

In lieu of increasing the boost that also increases the heat, I put a different cam that with the bigger injectors gave me more HP/torque. I thought about a shorty header but the JCW already has a decent exhaust and with my hearing already not the best, left the OEM header in place.

Stripes Color for LoftSC

I been looking for a set of stripes but so far there's only white or black and I'm pretty sure the ones in my car are silver. Do anyone knows where to get them or have any tried white or black on your car?

$16k - is that not a pretty insane price?

Any more details / photos / Carfax report?

Not sure - whatever they were they were rubbish and most people changed them out as soon as they could
