  10. R56 S v R56 JCW

    R56 General
    Seriously thinking about buying a R56 noe that there are serious tuning options available. However is it worthwhile spending the extra $$$$ on getting a JCW or just get an S and whack a hybrid turbo on it? If I do get one I plan of modding the shit out of the engine
