We took delivery of our Marv last week having owned two MK1 Coopers previously I thought I could resist the urge to tinker with our new pride and joy. The first few days of ownership have been spent driving around with the windows down with a big smile on my face as I listen to the exhaust pop away.

My only slight reservation is that I would like a bit more noise and a bit more performance so naturally I'm thinking about mods that could achieve this without completely screwing the warranty.

First preference would be to add a JCW tuning kit, however after trawling the web I can't find any mention of one being on the cards, has anyone heard anything about this yet?

Second would be to look at a Miltek / Borla exhaust, having looked around the only example of a tuned f56 MCS I can find is from these guys

Has anyone seen any other examples or sites that are offering tuning components? :| It could be that I'm going to just have to wait for the manufacturers to pull their finger out I suppose, I've never been an early adopter before so not sure how long this would take.

Yes I agree the brakes need some attention. When I was trolling the web I read that one of the press cars with the JCW exhaust was also fitted with coil overs. Anyone else run across this?

Yes, its the JCW suspension option - but its not been confirmed as coilovers. More likely to be shocks and springs offering 30mm lowering.

KW have relaxed coilovers now, and mine will be here in 4-6 weeks (factory lead time) which will be a much better option :)
