Hi all,

We've moved house in the last few months and now live in a rural area and our driveway is quite steep so Amber has decided to sell the Mini and get a 4x4.

Sooo...

2006 '56' plate Mini Cooper 1.6 pez, Getrag gearbox because we love reliability
Will have 12 months MOT (Booked for 18th Dec)
113k
Receipt from previous owner who had a new clutch and new gear linkages
Half leather - Half heated! (Passenger is faulty, small burn from where it broke..)
17" alloys
Cone air filter (Actually makes a difference!)
Xenon headlights
Chilli pack
Remote locking
Rear parking sensors
Electric roof works perfectly.


Negatives:
NSF tyre randomly deflates, have had it checked by a garage who can't find any leaks.. it'll hold for weeks then drop overnight, do it for 3 days in a row then be fine again for a while.. no idea.

Drivers side window could do with adjusting slightly, seems to have dropped a tiny bit so if it rains hard a bit of rain gets in if it's at the right angle. Not got round to sorting.

Bit of lacquer peel, not terrible.

Wanting £1800 ono.. would swap for a Freelander/L200/diesel 4x4 of some sort although she's a bit picky.. :)

I quite like these.

I don't have £1800, or a need for a can with only two viable seats, but GLWS.

P.S. awaiting input that fwd french cars with narrow wheels are better for steep driveways than a 4x4 pick up thing

I love driving them, we've had this nearly a year and had the last one for probably 4 years IIRC. Great cars.

The rear seats are exactly the same as the hardtop so it does have 4 seats but no Mini is designed for a family I don't think!


It's really just an excuse I think, she wants a truck of some description and I quite like the idea of it so not going to stop her! She also lugs a lot of stuff about as she does craft fairs.. she's always using my car as a cabriolet boot isn't particularly practical if I'm honest.

Still, it's great. Someone buy it please.

Any history of the chain being replaced on this? IIRC this is the second generation Mini and has the Prince engine?

I don't have any history of the chain being replaced although I'm fairly sure it's a Tritec, not a Prince engine? It's the standard 1.6 N/A. This is an R52 (Cabriolet version of the original R50)

I'm no expert but that looks to be the first gen and older (better) Tritec engine. I'll pass it onto them.

I can’t actually remember! I’ll give it a wash and get some pics. Rear bumper and passenger door rings a bell?

It’s a manual and has the best (reliable) gearbox too!

These first-gens are ace.  JJ, your old Bini now lives with my neighbour - he's fixed all the minor blemishes and cleans it every week, he loves it.  It still looks far more modern than his wife's new i30.

MOT done. Expires 02/01/2020 - New CV boot and new brake pipe. Only advisories are 1 tyre and little reserve travel in the handbrake.

I'll probably get round to replacing both front tyres in the next couple of weeks.

Keen on a TD4 Freelander if anyone wants a deal.

ohh thats weird to see 2020 as an actual date, in my mind its still 300 years into the future! 

 

(but how does that work? I thought MOTs are exactly 1 year so should it not expire on the 28 of Dec 2019?)

 

also MOT spanning 3* years?  :mrgreen:

 

congrats on the pass :)

Can MOT a vehicle up to 28 days early and if it passes the difference is added to 12 months therefore in theory you could actually have 13 months mot on a car...

His probably originally ran out some point in January and has MOT’d it early...
