5 things you need to know about the 2018 Mini Cooper JCW

Cars
We spent some time in 2018 MINI COOPER JOHN COOPER WORKS which knocks out two hundred and twenty eight horse power and two hundred and thirty six pump pit of talk and here are five things that you need to know [MUSIC]. A dealer installed tuning kit includes a remote control to rip open that exhaust and let them know you are coming. It's about $1700 but, you'll also need some extra coin for either chrome or carbon exhaust tips. Just point and shoot the two litre turbo charger mini into the turns and she sticks like glue. A six feet manual transmission is standard and we recommend that you stick with that. Don't ruin the fun with the $1500 six feet automatic. Thanks to the standard run-flat tires the ride is punishing over even the smoothest of pavement. The first thing enthusiasts will want to do is switch out those hard tires for some softer summer rubber. There are no dials to be found in the Mini, just lots of cool switches to flip up and down. [MUSIC] You'll need $31800 for a classic trim Mini John Cooper works but, the top of the line iconic trim will set you back about 40 grand. [MUSIC] That's five things that you need to know about Mini's little pocket rocket. Head on over to the RoadShow.com to check out the photo gallery and read a full review of the 2018 mini Cooper, John Cooper works.
