    Acht well never mind, cheers for the updates folks

    Will see if she can have another rethink on the JCW Clubman but she's not 'sold on the back end.
    The new JCW Countryman is unfortunatey not on the agenda atm but the pre 2016 model is being seriously considered

    The most HOT version of the F55 was the Works 210 which is an S with the tuning kit, still a rare little car

    For what itís worth I loved the new Clubman JCW I had on demo for 4 days and as an overall car itís great to drive and live with. I couldnít rally find a lot wrong with it and in my opinion the only downside is the fuel tanker you need to keep up with you as I felt it drinks fuel for fun (possibly due to the 4 wheel drive). I didnít abuse it in any way shape or form as I wanted to see what it was like for day to day driving (incase folk thought otherwise).
    I also loved Christinaís JCW Countryman which I had the opportunity to drive a couple of times. I think itís a car that many folk donít give a second look but I think it would be great fun to own. Youíll get a lot of car for the money now but itíll be trying to find a good example that may be an issue. The only thing that I wasnít keen on was the handbrake but that wouldnít have put me off owning one.
    If it was me Crombers I wouldnít let her write off the new F54 Clubby S you get a great car for the money and with a wee tune it should be quicker than a JCW !

    You only need two tools in life WD40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should use WD40 and if it moves and shouldn't use Duct Tape.

    I've got a 2018 F55 cooper s and it has the tuning kit. I also got all the interior JCW parts. I just need some JCW wheels and then I have practically got a JCW .

    Honestly, I test drove the clubman before buying the F55 (had a child on the way at the time). But the 5 door was the best decision I made as it's very similar to the 3 door.

    Now thankfully looking at an F55 'S' cheers for the input guys & will keep you all posted

    Really surprised that the 5 door Is not available with the full JCW package, I know I'm well out of the knowledge with regard to all new developments but ........

    I personally think thatís the best route and if they need more power a remap is cheap enough to make it worth your while. Can get 250bhp without any hassle at all from an S with everything else standard.
