I mean, really, how cool would it be to get a JCW MINI, right?
Here is my delima. Is a MINI worth $30K?
For a bit more than that I’ve built a MINI with the following options:
- Space Blue/Silver
- Sport and JCW pack
- Rear Fog
Still up in the air is the cold weather package.
While I have no doubt that this car would be worth the money, keep in mind that kind of money can buy a whole lotta car these days. Cars that are faster, more practical, get better gas mileage, can haul more people and/or gear. I mean, I drool every time I see a ’00 – ’02 330ci, which can be had with low miles for that price. Or a slightly more used 5 series (same vintage), not to mention the plethora of Big 3 autos that can be had, new, for that price.
Of course I don’t need JCW. But I’d probably do the 3 mods, plus brakes and suspension. Now, the JCW car doesn’t come with the JCW suspension, but that I can over look.
So, get all the cool JCW go-fast goodies from the factory and do the extra bits later (interior/exterior trim items), or get the car I want, configured the way I want, just without the JCW?
Within reason, what say you?
