Not sure if this is of any good to you lovely people? It's now surplus to requirements. It really does drive lovely and has only got a couple of niggles but I've not the time, effort or inclination to sort.

Quite a high spec car which includes....

Half leather seats
Aircon
Traction and stability control
Cruise control
Factory alarm system
Heated mirrors and door locks
On board computer for mpg etc
Interior mood lighting pack
Boost CD player with aux
White exterior indicators. Also had chilli pack from factory.

Drives really nice with no knocks or bangs. 6 speed gearbox is smooth and clutch bite perfect. Still feels nice and tight.

9 months MOT and both advisories from last MOT have been done. Parrot handsfree kit. Recent full service. 17" alloys which look lovely with good tyres.

Engine light comes on every now and then, might take a day might take a week, had it in at a mini place and mechanic says it's either the vanos exhaust solenoid or the exhaust vanos sprocket. Solenoid is about £30 and hours Labour (Looks easy but fiddly) or if it's sprocket they are £70 and has quoted £100 to change ( no idea how easy lol). He said do cheap one first because they do go quite often. It drives perfectly with it on or off so I've never bothered with it really, meant to sort but you know how it is lol. No timing chain noise at all and chain and tensioners look about new, have got a pic of them.

Really good on petrol and is currently on 38.9 mpg. Advertised for £1500 on bumtree, cheaper here for you lovely people

Any questions fire away

That's decent value, and it's more likely to be the vanos solenoid. I have the same Mini without all the extras, and it's valued at 1700 trade.

The sprockets very rarely fail. Solenoids can, timing chain stretch is most likely - very common.

That's very cheap - nice spec, but the wheels are a bit wanky and the stripes don't look to have been applied correctly to me.

He checked it and it's not chain, on his reader you can see the value being sluggish to keep up to where it should be. He also had cam cover off and checked guides etc
