MINI is officially taking the wraps off of its after-sales accessories with a range of appearance and performance options. We’re going to go through every single one of them in detail with part numbers and prices. But first lets talk about JCW. (Full list and PDF after the break)
MINI will be releasing a slew of JCW accessories in the weeks ahead as we wanted to start by taking a look at some highlights:
– The John Cooper Works Aero Kit for Cooper S. The kit consists of a lower, aggressive front bumper sill, bold side skirts, a functional rear diffuser and large exhaust pipe tips. It not only improves the sporty look of the MINI but also the performance of the MINI Cooper S or MINI Cooper S ALL4 Countryman by lowering the aerodynamic resistance. MSRP: $2,154 primed.
– The John Cooper Works 19â€ Double-Spoke Wheels the largest MINI wheel ever offered. This light weight construction wheel is available in a black and machined finish. MRSP: $3,593.00 for polished and $3,527.00 for black.
– JCW Steering wheel and shift knob. These is basically the same designs as found on other MINIs updated for the Countryman. MSRP: $537 and $179 respectively.
– JCW Design Package. This is a new package consisting red mirror caps and red brake ducts. MSRP: $251.95
Now let’s move onto the larger MINI accessories line-up. As you’ll see in the PDF below there are a number of familiar pieces that we’ve seen in the line-up for years. But there are also a few new accessories and more than a few that take advantage of the new rail system in the Countryman.
We’ll be hands-on with reviews on a few key accessories throughout the year. Until then, here’s the entire accessories list for the US market as of January 2011.
