The Rise and Fall of TDLC's Midnight Black JCW
After having owned my Chilli Red Cooper S JCW Stage 1 for 18 months, I decided it was time for a change. I took the plunge and got myself a Midnight Black JCW :D I'm so chuffed with this machine. The power delivery is staggering.
Have stripped out my car over the months and today weighed a few bits .
Battery - 13.64kg
Roof Glass inc seals, motor, inside panel - 25kg
Battery cable - larger of the two red ones - 2.3kg
Chrome petrol cap and emergency release pull - 0.68kg
Battery box and heatshield underneath - 4.55kg...
If you know my address its a fitting name for my car really with how black it is. I bought the car as a standard JCW 210 with the sparco JCW seats, areo kit and Chili pack in april 2005 when it was 6 months old.
I promised myself I wasnt going to mod this one after doing quite a lot of tweeks...
