After selling my MINI One, i missed it alot : (

I drove BMW 321i for a while it was a good car but no FUN!!!!

The aim was to get a JCW because i test drove one a while back it was a FULLY LOADED Pepper White JCW

I was SOLD on the noise alone (there was a Tunnel involved in the test drive)

The POPS & BANGS!!!!

After driving my BMW for a while and my 22nd Birthday coming up i thought i would treat myself

I went around to a few dealerships and i wasn’t impressed with the service I got

Finally found a nice person to deal with. The lovely Dawn at Benham MINI

I promised to buy a MINI off her after the way she dealt with me – I am man of my word

In March 2011, i went down to spec up my JCW and yes countless hours were sent on the online configurator to get her just right

I went for the CHILLI Pack, Harmon Kardon Sound system, Full Leather, Black Rims, Black Roof, Black Bonnet Stripes,Chrome Line Interior, Roster Red Interior Colour Line,  Metallic Eclipse Grey (Newly Launched Colour at the time).

I should have spec’d the No COST OPTION of Sports Suspension – FAIL by Me


Delivery Came in June and I was very happy to see that my MINI was the one of the 1st Eclipse Grey MINI’s in the UK, never minding it was one of the 1st Face lifted (LCI) JCW.

Various updates inside and outside such as LED rear lights

The idea of buying the car was to go to MINI UNITED but it was cancelled that year

Next post on me catching the Modding bug & alot of Carbon Fibre was involved…..
