2003 mini cooper 5 speed - $2200.00 - boynton beach
« on: August 15, 2018, 06:40:17 PM »
mine. will let it go to a villager for $2200. not really a pin hauler, but you get creative, you'll get it in there. :)

i've had my fun with it. have spent $300ish just replacing external moldings that were missing for whatever reason. comes with extras, too.


the only issue it has, is it may grind 2nd until you get used to time the shifts. i don't grind it when i drive it. weird british close range ratios, and there's a cable you can replace, but not worth doing in my opinion...i'd drive this to cali tomorrow. i replaced the fluid in the tranny with MTL-90, did an oil change, radiator flush, fresh german power steering fluid, all the basics. great cd/mp3/usb soundstream radio with upgraded speakers.

I had a decked out 2004 Cooper S I bought brand new and drove for 7 years and loved it.
They're solid cars.

Great villager! Deal with confidence!

thanks. :)

dropped the price a lot because of 1 POS off of craigslist, who's lack of intelligence helped my desire to not sell to offerUp or CL piece of xxxxs. ;)

thats tempting, a lot of ride for not a lot of money. at that price you could drive it for a couple of years , leave your number one vehicle at home so it doesnt rack up commuter miles! AND the seller is a honest guy! If yo even think this car might be for you , at least go look at it, might be just the fit you need. plus you might get a shot at K7's pins!
 and I have a package for you that continues riding around on my front seat till I get to the Post Office.

unlike most 10 year old BMWs, the electronics work in this one. :) i know it's actually british built, threw me off that i had to buy power steering fluid from germany :o

it does need that cable i spoke of, but for the sell price i stuck it at, i'm not doing it.

you pop the hood from the passenger seat.

brits used reverse torqs hold everything together.

if i own it much longer, i'm putting coilovers on it and slamming it to the floor. ;D

yeah the electronics fiasco has been going on with BMW for quite a few years actually. I dont knw the problem like "god bless Lucas" but its been a concern even in the world f SCCA racing. Hasnt stopped anyone from racing minis though.
Somebody should buy this, do a little work, maybe a littel suspension stuff and then take it to autocross or those "club" noghts SCCA puts on at Palm Beach Raceway. Dont even have to have a license to arrive and after a quick tech, go out on the track and do some laps.
 good luck with the sale!

Chris did a villager buy it or outside sale?

That was a nice deal for someone.

because my 911 has reached prece levels, Im going to give it to my nephew since I no longer do track days with it. Have to admit, if the 911 had already left wjust might be tempted to slide that mini into the garage. like you said do some minor suspension work and get some good tires and go track it.

well, it came full circle back to me. and i tell you...mini coopers suck, as far as their bolts are concerned. :P

but i coilover'd the damm little thing. and proceeded to tear apart my passenger drive axle. oh, well. lesson learned. :(
