Nice starting point. Welcome to mt
How do you tell? Lack of JCW brakes and (by the looks of it) JCW suspension?Its a dealer fit JCW rather than factory so 192bhp stock.
doesnt have jcw Brakes and it has the stage 1 exhaust with the jcw logoWelcome to MT!
I hope that wasn't a butt dyno readout from the guy! Get a health check and a dyno run to see exactly what the score is before you start modifying :thumbup1:
Looks a very nice starting point though. I'd check out your suspension options before sorting the wheels! And even then, don't waste a lot of money on heavy JCW hoops with crap offsets, there are plenty of aftermarket options out there :wink:

Is that the same for Gen 1 too?Works badge on the right only at the back is usually factory works. Cooper S badge on right plus Works badge on the left equals dealer fit works pack.
Yep you can tell from just a logo, see here: http://www.minitorque.com/forum/f18/2nd-gen-jcw-guide-32506/As for the exhaust (seems to have sparked a debate) surely you can't tell exactly what it is just on the logo on the tip. It is very loud and throaty, pops and burbles all the time in every gear.
As for the suspension and brakes, as its a dealer fit surely (whoever got the kit fitted) decided not to get the brakes.
Back to a question i asked in my first post, sports cat or de-cat? Would i be better off spending the extra on a sports cat? And does anyone know if it will pass an MOT with a sports cat?
