Nice spec derekh929-see you prefer to wait on manual. I had considered trading in MCS for a Golf R briefly, but don't really need a family car or less space in garage!


After having test drive in JCW on 2 May I made up my mind there and then.
Went for Lapis with Red roof/mirrors on a whim though, along with auto which surprisingly I quite liked (always said only ever a manual!)
Chilli Pack/VBR. Head-Up. Sunroof. VDC. Sun Protection Glass. Folding Mirrors. Colour Line-Red. Adaptive Headlights. Chrome Line Interior. JCW Bonnet Stripe. 18" Cup Spoke. LED Aux Lamps and of course for a bit of fun the JCW Pro Exhaust.
Won't have much change left!!
If all goes to plan might have it first week of June. Can't wait now.

Sorry. I should have said LED Driving Lamps (or Spot Lights as they used to be called!). They are the dealer fit lights at about, would you believe it, £750 gulp. Still wondering whether to change my mind? Used to fit these myself many years ago for a few pounds!

If I do need a manual FIX there's always the 5 speed quickshift in my Moggie to play around with!

John. Our configurator doesn't allow for adding dealer fit accessories so no way car can be partly wired for extra lights. As you probably know there are a lot of differences between UK & USA configurators with packs etc. Will probably have to make do with a hole in the dash and a big red pushbutton if I go ahead with LEDs!!


I think I saw another thread where you wondered about how the JCW looked with the lamps. You can get the idea with the Challenge 210 here, but of course the lower fogs are replaced by grilles instead. They do look quite small!

Hi


Can confirm light switch is mounted to side of steering column as siriuszero says and light sits right in front of badge:( Dealer has just fitted a set of lights to Cooper so I might check it out this weekend.


Have just gone ahead and ordered lights for dealer fit. Got some discount but still quite expensive at £590 here. Car is still on track for 1st week in June and Mini UK said its the 1st build in Lapis. Configured this on US website earlier
as it allows addition of lights unlike ours. Hope it looks as good in the flesh!:laugh:
