My '03 DS MCS, now '10 JCW Clubby

Hi All

Just thought 'd start a project thread for my R53 :tongue_smilie:

In late Oct '09, I bought my DS MCS as a non-runner. Otherwise, it's a fairly well loaded MCS with sunroof, satnav, xenons, full leather, auto wipers, auto dimming rear mirror, and S-spokes.

Here's a pic when it arrived at home; aka my 'Blank Canvas':



Running and Registered:



JCW catback:



Homemade CAI (was bored needed some garage time :) ):



There are some random graphics, but they probably won't be on long :)

Next job: headers and 15% pulley

Been a little while since I have posted anything up - really need to take some pics :)

So what's new on the S:
- Alta intercooler diverter

Also did these this week, hope to have them on the car over the weekend.



Plenty of stuff waiting to go on :lol:

Any idea why its not running?
I assume you are asking about why it was not a 'runner' when I bought it. From what I could tell, it looked like there was a crack in the block somewhere - anyways I put in a second hand motor in November.

Nice!

*cough* 15s on your car FTW ;)

You will be happy with the weightloss believe me :lol:
Thanks.

I am actually looking for some lightweight wheels to replace the S-heavies :)

BTW what brakes are you running to fit 15's on? I am planning to fit R53 JCW / R56 S brakes and I am told minimum 16's.

Because the spokes do not run all the way to the outside they stop short and then you have a ring around the rim, this makes them look smaller

Agreed, plus probably cause I am running 215/45-17s.

Here's our first Cooper with BBS replicas and 215/40-17s and they look better from a size perspective :)
