The Clubbie was handsome straight out of the dealers but it wasn’t long before the changes started. First stop was a visit to MINI Pirate for a full makeover to give her my trademark Union Jack treatment – so a UJ roof and vipers front and back. 18″ R 90 replica alloys completed stage 1 of the new look.
The modding had only just begun and soon the alloys were changed again to a much meaner looking set of MAK Volare 7.5 x 18 rims shod with Yokahama S drives. To complement this, the car was lowered approximately 30mm on Eibach springs and a JCW Clubman spoiler soon appeared on the back.
Next JCW Brembo brakes were added to give the car the stopping power to match the P-Torque remap. Silver side skirts and UJ A – panels were then fitted and this almost completed the exterior look of the car. Finally, 4 spots on the front – a rare sight on R55/56 MINIs – union jack mirrors and a UJ interior mirror did complete the look of the car.
