The JCW was 3 1/2 years old, out of warranty and approaching 50k miles so I thought it was time for a change. Saw the volcanic orange S , fell in love and bought on the spot. It was x demo, under 2k miles and 1 mth old and had all the bells and whistles I was looking for. Much more refined than the JCW - but still miss it and would certainly look at another in the future!

The JCW obviously has more high end power than the R56 and F56 MCSs, but would you consider a remap?


Figures of 250hp are now starting to be reported for just a remap. :)


How do you find the gearbox, steering and handling in comparison - do you have VDC?

I do have VDC - however I do prefer the handling of the JCW although the ride in the JCW was much harsher. I also preferred the closer ratio of the JCW box - it seemed that when you changed down you actually got a braking effect - that seems to have diminished in the MCS. Don't get me wrong I really enjoy the smoothness and comfort of the MCS - it's just not quite as raw !!
