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.

Good work Usmcxd!

I agree with A383Wing's suggestions, as that'd be interesting info.

Possibly add if the car was slicktop or sunroof also?

Some configurations are exceedingly rare, like once when I was researching older threads on NAM, I came across an '06 JCW Space Blue slicktop with roof same as body color, can't be too many of those out there!

I haven't been active in this endeavor, but I'll try and start compiling --- any parameters you're sticking to? Like North America only for instance?

I did come across an old registry which was very small but had an interesting footnote claiming that S10247 was the first factory install.
Dunno if that jives though,
doesn't seem correct to me?
https://web.archive.org/web/20080723...-registry.org/

It would be great if we did actually know the first factory install, then we could hopefully find #100/100 LotSC and that'd give us the end number ain't it?
Then we'd have a solid number for factory JCW production.

https://www.northamericanmotoring.co...l-100-a-2.html

:



I did find #96 but there is no pic of the serial number.
https://www.bluelinemotors.com/2008_...A_30109105.veh

And,
#84 here on NAM:
https://www.northamericanmotoring.co...-84-100-a.html




I'll keep looking and trying to find more of 'em.

:

In the meantime,
here's a couple of JCW from this mornings search...

...S16888 - 6/01/2007
https://showroom.auction123.com/loui...ource=Showroom louis_frank_motorcars




:

S5191 - 2004 - Liquid Yellow with roof same as body color - sunroof
https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2004-mini-cooper-s/

(that car is currently up for sale again on BaT with 2 days left)

:

S5335 - 2004 - MC40 - Chili Red/White roof - slicktop
https://www.northamericanmotoring.co...ml#post4263447

:

S11637 - 2006 - British Racing Green/Silver roof - slicktop

My other JCW engine number is S15505 ........I'll try to find the tag that came with it for what car it came out of and get you that info also.....I do know it was a 2006 R53

EDIT: Here is the info on the JCW car that I got the wrecking yard motor from last year

2006 R53, Production date July 5th, 2006, Dark Silver Metallic, White roof, white mirror caps, white bonnet stripes, NO SUNROOF, Couple interesting options, it did have the HK radio system, also had the front center armrest and rear fog light. The car that this engine came out of has gone to MINI Heaven......they crushed the car right after engine was removed

Please pardon my anorak trainspotting tendencies...

...a bit more rambling on the topic of alternate rocker cover badges.

As mentioned earlier it was something that the original Mini oldschool tuners did in the wayback days...



...but I failed to mention their modern equivalents.

I just stumbled across a variant from MiniMadness and it reminded me that there's quite a few out there from various tuners:








Any other alternate badges out there?

I have to go back and read through a few threads and add the new additions. Ill try to add color and other details, but it may be hit or miss.

As far as the first FJCW one ill try to track it down.

Let me know what other info you want.
Would it be worth setting up a shared document or wiki so that everyone can help collate the info?

Thats a good idea. Do you think it would be possible to make a registry on there?

You may want to add VIN to your list as that will preserve the info need for a factory build sheet. Also, it will show if any JCW kits were salvaged and put on a second MINI.

ECS Tuning
Thanks for adding more alternates!

I had totally forgotten about Cosworth...

...what a legendary nameplate it is.

I've read a little about the heads they used to offer, but not really much info out there and it seems that they didn't produce them very long.



And,
just came across another alternate in the classifieds here on NAM:

https://www.northamericanmotoring.co...r53-turbo.html
