A couple of months ago I went to Shropshire and retrieved a Mini Cooper for Mrs 83C. The plan was to fix it up and for her to use it, but time has conspired against repairing it.

It’s a 2002 Cooper in Yellow, standard bits including central locking, leccy windows and alloys.

The issues: the gearbox makes a clicking noise in 1st gear, otherwise it drives well. The Body Control Module has failed due to water ingress (TADTS), replacements can be had for £50. An exhaust rubber has perished somewhere, causing a clonk from underneath over speed bumps.

The good - it has test until late September, still drives (I drove it back from Shropshire), and the body is fairly clean now I’ve removed all the tar spots.

Shiters’ price - £425, collection from TR4 9PU

EDIT: The spare gearbox has sold separately, so this is now £300! Come and get a mahoosive barg!

Have a bump. These really do look quite nice now, especially given the gopping nature of the current Mini range.

I would, but as it’s Mrs 83C’s car she just wants a straight sale. I’ll have a random in the roffle for it though!

And the lights. No indicators, headlamps stay on dipped beam, tail-lights on. Basically running in a lighting version of limp mode. Brake lights work independently of the BCM though.

Freaking bargain. Even with a duff box. I'm sure* this could just be driven around in 2nd gear up.
Oldies: 1972 Austin 1100 2dr - Project Rust bucket, 1974 MGB GT - A stereotypical classic car.
Moderns: 2000 Boxster - New enough to drive sublimely but old enough to nearly feel like a classic, 2010 Aldi A4 - Owned to placate the wife on my crap buying.
