New to the mini scene, picked up this little beauty with a lovely factory spec and some great aftermarket features.
Quaife diff, KW coils, Remus exhaust and a stage 1 to name a few aftermarket goodies which really turn this little pocket rocket up!

Interestingly had a retrofit item of a low compression engine, which is very peculiar if anyone can shed any light? Thanks!

Maybe the Low Compression engine is just an old knackered one they had around the back, and they chucked it in just to get it going? :)
Very odd because the JCWs have lower compression than the Cooper S so they can run more boost effectively. Didn't realise BMW would do such a thing at factory that's all!

Wow that thing is clean! Is that thunder gray? I can't wait to cut and buff my new to be 14 MCS in thunder gray and get rid of some chrome!
Thanks and yeah it's a good colour, it is crazy how many looks it gets. I will also be paint correcting soon to bring out some more metallic!
