Default Buying my first MINI R53

Hi,

I'm looking at buying an R53. I live in Sydney, Australia. Tossing up between a stock R53 and a JCW R53 with every single factory option including:

- John Cooper Works (or JCW) 157kw (210hp) Engine Package
- JCW Brembo Brakes & Rotors
- JCW Exhaust
- JCW Aero Bodykit
- JCW Strut Braces/ Swaybars
- JCW Black Viper/Racing Stripes
- Carbon fiber/ Chrome Mirror and Dash inserts
- Double Sun roof
- JCW Suspension slightly lowered
- Xenon headlights
- Spot Lights with BMW Covers
- Half-leather seats
- Darkest legal tint
- 16" SSR type C Wheels with Goodyear tyres
- Chrome MINI2 Gear ****/ Hand Brake Cover
- 6 Stacker CD player + Full premium sound system
- Ipod Connectivity
- Cruise Control + Full Alarm system

The stock R53 has 90,000 km on the dash whilst the JCW one has 115,000 km's. The stock one is going for $18,750.00 while the JCW one is going for $20,000.00.

The JCW owner has assured me there is absolutely nothing wrong with the car but it seems to good a deal to be true. I am wondering whether it is difficult to find parts for a JCW in Sydney? Which car should I buy?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Cheers.

ANY dealer can get the JCW parts for you they might be pricey compared to stock Mini parts
