2003 Mini Cooper S £1200

Recommended Posts

WOMAN_RML has decided to move her Cooper on and asked that I nudge you lot first before braving eBay/Bumtree/Couponpamphlet Shoap.

 

SC53 CCE

2003 Mini Cooper S (Supercharger)

1598cc Petrol

3DR Hatchback

Manual 6 Speed Gearbox

Gunmetal Grey

MOT until 29th November 2019

111,300 Miles on the clock

2 keys – Remote Central Locking

 

**

 

LAST MOT (29th November 2018)

Failed on reg plate lamp inoperative (repaired), and leak in offside shock absorber (repaired)

Advisories on offside front tyre worn, stop lamp not working, offside rear road wheel slight distort

 

**

Last Service: November, 2018 (date of last MOT)

Air Con Recharged: November, 2018 (date of last MOT)

Front brake discs, pads and callipers replaced: October, 2018

Handbrake Cable Replaced: September, 2018

Rear brake discs, pads, and callipers replaced: September, 2018

Xenon Headlamps replaced (inc. near-side ballast): August, 2018

 

**

 

Bodywork has a couple of small bubbles, but otherwise sound

Missing fixings by front headlamps (aesthetic only)

Will need at least 1 tyre in early New Year

No back window wiper

Back window tint film has been removed, but there is still residual film to be removed

Driver’s door check strap needs replacing

Driver’s side seat bolster worn

Interior is scruffy, but in overall good condition for age

Air Con recharged, but unsure as to whether the system is fully functional – may need checked.

 

It's not a bad example really and goes extremely well but isn't perfect. Car is in Central Scotland within easy reach of civilisation and we'd like £1200.

Will add pictures in a bit.

Good stuff, I really liked that car. As you said before they feel much more modern but are "still a Volvo". it's started appearing in my "Facebook memories", it was brilliant this time last year in the snow!

 

Sorry for changing the subject...

 

Mini for sale!

a supercharger makes the engine more efficient, right ? so better mpg's ? I'm clutching at straws here :)

 

I'd love to have a go on one of these round knockhill, the race series used to be in n/a coopers which I could pretty much keep up with in the mx5 on trackdays, now they're onto cooper S's and they leave me for dust on the straights :( 

 

what a relief there won't be any opportunities for excessive alcohol consumption over the next few days, I might do something silly

If I hadn't just transferred for the 330 - I would be on this like dog hair on a sofa...……… Always wanted one - at least for temp ownership to tick it off the list. I've only ever been a passenger. This should be snapped up. If not - next payday I'm bankrupting myself!

 

Edit - in a week! aaarrgghhhhhhh

This is still here. Got some more recent pictures of it for those who are still drooling over a tiny Supercharged go-kart.

It's not perfect but it's not hinging either.

Higher power is the John Cooper Works edition. Badge slapped on the back as an option but not always. Basically the increase in power is due to a pulley change on the supercharger. Hence many did it even if not originally a JCW out of the factory.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am

      Hot on the heels of last week’s collectioneering of a Xantia, another collection starts here and now. Well it is probably a collection as long as the car is as described, but I am optimistic.

      Clues. It’s enormous yet quite cramped. Never had one before and it could be considered blessed, saintly even!

      It's the green one.
      If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
      Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
       
      Therefore, funtime!
       
      Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
       
      (GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
       
      It's a risk, but I'll take it.
      I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.
       
       
      Location:
       
      Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
       
      Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.
      The Car.
      My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
      1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
      Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
      Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
      Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
      New oil and filter last week.
      Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
      Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
      The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

      All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation. 








      99p anyone?
