MINI will be offering a range of new JCW accessories throughout the year. First up will be a couple new sets of black 18″ JCW wheels. But the big news comes later in the year when MINI finally offers two accessories long sought by Clubman owners.
First up will be the addition of the JCW aero kit to the Clubman’s accessory list. So Clubman owners rejoice – your car can now have the same aggressive look and power bump as the Coupe. We’ve heard that this should be available sometime this spring. What’s unclear is whether R55 owners will have the new option of painted arches that R56 owners now have.
Then later in the year the Clubman will be getting some additional JCW love in the form of the dealer/port installed tuning kit. The kit will feature the same 192bhp as the Coupe’s kit and the same price tag. You can read our review of the kit for the R56 coupe here.
Look for the later option to make it’s way to the R57 Convertible in the second half of the year. The main hold-up on the tuning kit will be the addition of a slightly redesigned exhaust needed wrap around the Convertible’s extra bracing.
