Thumbs up The night before...

Evenin`all, brand new around these parts, and looking forward to taking part in what appears to be a cracking forum so far !

I`m collecting my new (to me) F56 JCW tomorrow afternoon, and I can`t wait now...

It`s only a few months old, with approx 8k miles on it, and it`s in Pepper White, with black roof and mirror caps, with the 18`cup spokes on.

Not a bad spec to it either:

Chilli Pack
Harman Kardon
Media Pack XL
Variable Damper Control
PDC and Park Assist
Heads Up Display
Heated Seats
Centre Armrest

I`ve also had the dealer remove the JCW bonnet stripes and replace them with black stripes very similar to the ones on the new MINI Challenge (not trying to make it look like a Challenge, BTW - I just like the stripes on this one very much), and judging from the pics I`ve been sent through, it looks like they`ve done a great job on them !

I`m out of a Mk7 Golf R to the JCW, so it`ll be interesting to compare them properly, once I`ve had a bit of time in the JCW.

So yes, the night before collection is always excellent, and you`ve all been there, so I`ve no doubt you`re feeling my excitement LOL !

It is not "Old School" if you can not put a Weber on it.

Thanks for the replies, and yes, I`m hoping to sleep tonight, but somehow I don`t think it will be too soundly !

MarkYorks: I know exactly what you mean mate, and it`s the wife`s fault that I`m buying the JCW, as she bought a brand-new MINI 7 about 6 months ago, and I now can`t stop driving the bloody thing LOL, which is driving her mad - so yes, I`ve blamed it all on her !!

Will-do Jeremy; it`s a bit like Christmas Eve felt, when you were 5 years old, at the moment - simply CANNOT WAIT to pick it up !

Must say I am somewhat nervous as to whether wifey will like the mini 5 door as for many years she has had a succession of the previous model Merc A class which although short on the outside was incredibly large inside and had a high up driving position. If she doesn't like it my life will be ****.
