    Thanks Mr Watton and Kettlepot! I'm from the Netherlands;) I recently bought my 2nd MINI F56, had a Cooper S before and now having a Cooper with JCW pack which I'm now trying to make into my favourite MINI build. I saw some great inspirational builds on this forum so thought why not join!:)

    Hi! Thanks for the welcome ☺️ You would be correct... I have a 2018 Clubman JCW. It’s had a full dechrome, headlight tint and is 270bhp with plenty of additions in the pipeline! I had a 210 Works with the JCW Pro kit on before the Clubman which was also an awesome car!

    Given the strange world we are all currently existing in, I thought I’d get some normality going (thank god I’m classed as a key worker). I installed one of my Christmas gifts - Helix short shifter - it certainly does what’s it states and has reduced the gear Shift travel. Before, during and after photos attached. I also have the same item for a 2004 onwards model if anybody would like to collect it, provided in error by the supplier. The convertible is in for its MOT next week, all appears fine I am just awaiting delivery of coolant to change that out. http://store.helix13.com/template/install_guides/SSK.pdf

    Hey Dean, yeah I've never tried with tape - it's probably too wide. Of course I'll help you once lockdown is over. Just need somewhere dry and power for hair dryer. Plus a good tip is for the car to have been dry for a few days as water can seep out from under the belt line while you are doing it even when it looks dry. I just re-did a couple of sections I wasn't happy with and it looks great now.

    I had a little blast out last weekend to 'social distance' myself from everyone.. and I wanted an excuse to see what the exhaust really sounded like. Normal driving around town is relatively unchanged apart from a little bit of a burble when pulling away and accelerating - with the roof up it is sometimes hard to notice. Once you get onto the open road and put your foot down it becomes immediately apparent that the sports cat is there. The exhaust now makes a much more throaty noise and sounds, in my opinion, the way a JCW should sound like from the factory. Pops and bangs on the overrun and when changing gear are also much more profound; this is something I'm very happy with as I'm an overgrown child. 😁 It sounds just right to my ears when I've got the roof down; it is loud enough and makes a nice noise. I rarely drive it in conditions where I need to have the roof up, and I might change my mind about it in the future, but at the moment I think I'm going to leave the rest of the exhaust alone. No sound clips as of yet.. But I'm sure I know a man with a GoPro that may assist with that 😉 Snapped a few bad pictures of a dirty car while I was out, too.

    We're proposing to do a run up to Hartside. DATE TBC. I've put together a route that will take us up the A69 to Haydon Bridge then on to Hartisde via the A686. For the route home I'm proposing a bit of a different twist and we take a more scenic and slightly longer route via High Force Waterfalls. As for those wanting food I'm lead to believe that there is sometimes a burger van on the site of the old Cafe. Failing that there are plenty of snacks available in the petrol station at Alston. The route map can be found here: https://goo.gl/maps/H1Ua5CuRch4FGVBm8 Start Point: MetroCentre McDonalds - Meet at 9am to head off at 9:30am Approx distance: 115 miles Approx journey time: 4 hours (with stops) Final end destination: Krispy Creme MetroCentre (Open to change, people can peel off during the run home) As always, feedback is welcome be it positive or negative *For those that know on the 29th there will apparently be photographers from "BikerPics' on the other side of the pass towards Melmerby. Once we're at Hartside if members want to have a run over that way to get photographed we can accommodate and fully support that - I'll be going!*

    Absolutely, that was the goal. I'm looking forward to getting out in it properly to see what it is really like I think I'm going to leave the mid section in for now and see how I get on. If I decide I want more noise I can always do that at a later date

    Not much to report on recently, but I have finally fitted the sports cat! Took the car to work last night to see what it sounds like and I'm very impressed with the outcome. It isn't too different during normal driving but sounds mega when you put your foot down! Pops and bangs are louder too 😊 I've done 60 miles so far and the EML hasn't come on.. Yet.. I'm quite happy with how the car is looking/sounding at the moment. Though I'll be a lot happier once I get the coilovers on

    It's a challenge finding something that isn't a set of Team Dynamics 😂 not a very useful opinion but I really like the stock wheels on yours @Kettlepot

    I absolutely love the Clubman but also loved the 210 works. It’s hard to compare them because they are very different but the 210 works was just too small for what we needed (myself, my husband and 2 dogs fitting in it wasn’t that fun)! I would say they are both fantastic to drive and you don’t lose that go-kart feel driving in Mid mode in the Clubman. Plus the spec of the Clubman that we got is much better than the 210 works as it has a pan roof, JCW seats and the XL screen. With the Clubman having All4 its also brilliant in the snow and living in Langley Park in Durham... We needed that!!

    Sounds good to me, Following on from Feedback from Krispy on Sunday just passed. Maybe alter the end destination to Toys R Us car park/Pizza Hut. See attached photo, this therefor means we’re out the way of public if we want to stand next to the cars or walk to McDonald’s for a coffee etc...?
