I saw someone on the FB group cut a hole in the splitters then transplant the sensors from his standard splitters into the Pro ones, someone else commented about PDC ones not being available - i know you can buy rear ones with PDC though
This is correct, they don’t make the JCW front splitters with PDC. Very annoying. They do for the rear just not the front. The guy modded his to take the PDC has done a very good job. I however don’t think i would risk cutting into the splitters. It’s a one shot deal. Cock it up and they go in the bin

Really tempted to buy the pro diffuser for mine. Can’t decide if it’s worth the price + fitting costs.

Cheapest i've seen them on ebay is £210 (Mini dealer) but Elliot who works at a Mini dealer does offers on the F56 owners club on FB and was selling them for £170

There are a few fitting guides/ vids online showing it isn't too difficult to fit it yourself.

I keep looking at them but sometimes think they look cheap - maybe if the outer parts (that stick out) were either colour coded to car or painted gloss black it would look better?

That looks smart - on a light coloured car it stands out a bit too much and being unpainted i think makes it worse? kind of like on a 80s car which had black unpainted bumpers :unsure:

I picked up mine with the pdc spots already fitted and install was easy

I think it’s about how it’s finished but we all have our builds

Ouch - a bit close to that kerb :oops:
Car looks great - i see you have the JCW brakes but the wheels look like the non JCW bowed ones - have you fitted spacers?
Yeah I was able to fit with 10mm (hubcentric) From H&R

fit like a glove and just pushes the stance out a bit too

air splitters went on after that pic

We will have to get that meet up arranged mate once I have my diffuser on in a few weeks. 👍

Definitely get the pro diffuser. Best mod I carried out on mine.

That looks nice - i think either the outer sections (sticky out parts) or the inner parts in gloss black would look ideal - gloss to match the boot handle and matt to match the spats (y)

You know what, I’ve looked quite a few times the last few days at these last few pics Robby Vrs, I think it looks awesome....the actual colour of the car matches those if you get me?

Thanks :)
I didn't like moonstone when it came out, i thought it looked too much like primer and very bland which is why my last Mini F56 (Cooper) was red as i thought that suited the car.
When i was looking for a JCW or Challenge i didn't want another red (wanted a change), didn't want black or green as they show all the swirls and marks so looked at white silver (almost bought a WS JCW but at 3 years old it had no service history) and then saw a moonstone up close and decided i liked it after all?
Moonstone is a strange colour, looks flat from a distance but up close you can see the metallic and it goes well with the black trim
