M3 and JCW coupe(M)

Hi gents,

Picking up a mini JCW coupe today. The "M" of mini's. Trading in a cooper S. These little gokarts are a blast to drive. Very tossable and quick. I'll be getting a tune that bumps HP to 248, not bad for a 2700 pound car. Makes a great city car and keep the M3 for pure pleasure driving. I wish there were rear wheel drive though. What a blast that would be. Any other mini drivers around here?

Hey Templarklimek,

Yeah I've got a JCW roadster and I must agree, mini's are such sick cars to drive! Nice colour choice hey, I wish I got the black wheels. The biggest downside with the JCW I find, dunno about the others models, is the suspension + runflat combo. It's just so stiff that I have to actively avoid potholes and when you live in Cape Town some of the roads are absolute shit. But hey, opportunity cost to one of the most fun cars I've driven! The amount of torque for such a little car is also amazing. All the best with the car bro!

Thanks! I'm not a fan of runflats. As it is new i could trade tires for non runflat higher performance types. Don't runflats hurt grip?

BTW, good luck in S.A. I read with dismay about your country. ANC=Mugabe.
