I was just kidding...

I did the same thing.... I have the R56 JCW but it didn't come with the JCW front and rear bumpers....

I eventually added them as well....

Given I have a JCW Kit on my R50, I am partial. But, the F56 looks SOOOOOOO much better in JCW cladding IMHO. Great build and can't wait to see how it turns out!

Decent update today...

JCW front bumper fitted with Factory JCW spec. So has the red grille & works badge (not sure how I feel about the badge) and also has the fog light delete.

I also too the opportunity to have the JCW Pro splitters fitted for a more aggressive look!

In addition to the bumper, I also got the JCW side skirts fitted too.

I'll let the pics do the talking....

Is the red something you came up with or is that a factory thing? I really like that accent a lot.

Its a factory thing for the JCW cars, but I dont think it works with all colours.

I think it works perfectly with the grey paint and red brake calipers.

Just a shame the red grille comes attached to the JCW badge!

Fantastic It really helps show off how low the car actually is.

Would you mind taking a pic of the clearance you have on the front wheels? I'm curious to see just how close 8 et 45 sits to the arches

I'm seriously loving all of the color-coded chrome and grill surrounds! They go so well with the F56!

Bit of an update today...

So after deciding to turn my attention to the interior I ordered a custom steering wheel and also the JCW gear knob with the aluminium shaft.

I have been sent a couple of shots of the finished product from the guy in Latvia who has completed the work on my spare steering wheel.

He has added:

Flat bottom
Thicker padding
Re trim in napa leather with alcantara
Red stitiching
Red centre band

He has provided a great service, sending me messages daily with progress updates and he answered loads of questions before I posted it out to him! It took a week for Parcel Farce to deliver it to him, and he's managed to turn this around in 2 days! Should be back in the post to me by tomorrow fingers crossed.

So the JCW gear knob turned up today - differences are red stitch on the gaiter and red lettering on the knob. The other obvious change is the aluminium shaft and smaller gaiter.

It is only a visual upgrade to be honest, but I think it looks great.

Final job for the wheel is to try and find somewhere to carbon skin the 3 spokes.....
