  1. Now I made some small recordings with my phone a while ago, for anyone who would care to know how a 1.5 sounds with a stock S exhaust. The JCW does sound a little nicer but also quite raspy, the exhaust I have gives a warmer tone and I do like the pops on upshift. *use headphones Driveby: Revs:
  2. The blue really pops in the landscape, I like it!✌️
  3. Thanks @LewisE! Yes the 3 pots do sound great actually when combined with a decent exhaust. Here's a clip of a Cooper F56 with a std. JCW exhaust in comparison to a stock one I found on YouTube. Excuse the Dutch language:) Comparison starts at 25sec into the video. Mine has a std. Cooper S exhaust which is already much fruitier as the 1.5 L 3 cylinder makes more noise then the 2.0 L.
  4. Some pictures of the JCW front bits added.. I love the front of this car! apologies the car is a bit dirty tho..
  5. In the end we did get it to slightly above 180 bhp. But I can assure you the real difference is on the road. You go from sort of quick enough for everyday traffic, to a very enjoyable "MINI" experience, or the impression you drive sonething special. On top of that I noticed because the car is less heavy at the front then the 2.0 Cooper S there is almost no understeer, the back-end comes around when going off throttle in corners. And so I'm really pleased with the outcome, greatly recommended. I actually doubt it lacks in performance to a stock S as a Cooper still is 70 kg lighter.
  6. So the car got delivered in early januari, and right away I made an appointment with a professional tuning shop for a custom chip tune of the B38 3 cylinder engine. I was hoping on 170-180 bhp and 280-300 Nm of torque bringing it very close to my old Cooper S Here are the results on the dyno runs on RON 95, don't ask me why I forgot to fill it up with RON 98:/
  7. So already thinking ahead, I bought some MINI mainly JCW parts for my project:) Here is a list of the part numbers if anyone might want to know: 51192339038 JCW pro front splitter 8618524 JCW pro gear leaver 51137449209-210 black line rear light surrounds 51137393456 JCW grille 51137449207 black line grille surround 9482820 JCW indicator lights 65202296772 MINI sport antenna E10-57-004-01-22 Eibach lowering springs
  8. Hi there MINI nuts! So here is my MINI I'm gonna "slightly" mod for this year. Previously I owned a R56 Cooper and a F56 Cooper S. I bought this Cooper 1.5 this december 2nd hand with low mileage. I have to travel a bit more because of a new job, and due to the fact the Cooper S having a bit more miles I decided it was time to search for something else and sell the S as I still could get a reasonable return on that car this year at the milage it had.

  9. 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!:)
