We’ve heard you. You want to read our review of the 2009 JCW MINI. In fact there hasn’t been a week that has gone by since spring that we haven’t gotten emails asking when we were going to drive the car. The wait is over. Our 2009 JCW press car will arrive tomorrow we’ll be putting it through its paces for an entire week.
While we weren’t able to get any track time booked, we’re going to be doing everything from spirited back-road jaunts to full-fledged road trips to ordinary commuting. As always we’ll give you a look at the car through the eyes of a MINI owner who has driven every single MINI model since the introduction of the car in 2001.
But we’ll also be working on a second piece comparing the new JCW with a fully prepped R56 MCS complete with JCW engine kit, JCW suspension kit and JCW aero-kit. That’s right, even though my MCS is technically sold, it’ll be brought of retirement (of sorts) and will be driven back to back on some of our favorite area roads to give you a full picture of how the two cars compare.
As always if you have any questions you’d like us to keep in mind during out test, let us know in the comment section below.
