Decided to move and spray the rear JCW badge for a laugh, results as shown.
I also sprayed the chromed JCW scuttes too, but didn't bother fitting them as I have the blackline scuttles fitted which I like.

My name is Tom and I am 19 and looking for my first Mini Cooper S.
Ideally a Gen 1 (54 to 56 plate) in either dark silver or black.
Looking for something which is as standard or has very few mods due to the insurance costs and I want to start from scratch.
Willing to pay anything up to the...

So after 6ish months of problems the GP has gone back to Rybrook Stratford after a very good px offer.
Picked up a black R56 S with Aero Kit and a few nice options. It’s very different to drive as it doesn’t feel as urgent as the R53 which I miss but the R56 isn’t awful and does good MPG's...
