Thanks for the quick reply. I have a 2012 with 50K so still have a ways to go.

Speaking of N14, JCW N14, N18, what years (production dates if you have them) were what motors in the Roadster?

The N14 engine was only made for the 1st half of 2012 for the JCW then changed over to the N18 for the rest of the production run.
I don't know about the S and Justa.

Facelift cars all got the the better n18 (apart from jcw)

if you have a vin you can check the build sheet with cars in the grey zone between the swap

Ours was built in July 2013 and it has the N18 engine I'm pretty sure...
