So after having my 2007 R53 for 4 years and swearing I would never part with it, I parted with it ☹️ This 2006 factory JCW came up for sale locally with only 51k on the clock and I had to buy it. Again this one is Astro black with full leather and list of extras which my other one was missing including auto air con, black headliner, and centre arm rest.

First thing was to get rid of some of the chrome and the non oem spots. Also added a new Cooper S badge and moved the JCW badge to the correct side. Also added some genuine JCW gel side sill emblems. Felt like the car was quite sluggish compared to my old S also, the air filter was clogged solid, replaced that and it made a massive difference

Next up I added a few bits to the engine bay and interior. Wanted an upgraded intercooler but trying to keep the oem look under the bonnet, so I fitted a GP one

The cover had a crack at in it so I ordered up a new one and fitted it also. Fitted a JCW strut brace as well.

Always wanted a set of JCW sparcos and when a set came up locally I couldn’t resist.

These were showing signs of wear, a visit from leather lab soon fixed that. Very happy with the results.
