For sale is a 2007 Mini Cooper in black. It runs and drives but has loads of issues, some big, some small.
Smells of oil - has an oil leak somewhere.Clutch slips so will need sorting.Can be difficult getting into 1st/2nd gear.Needs new brake pads on the front, maybe even discs as they are scraping.
Drivers electric window is very slow going up and down.Boot takes several goes to unlock on the remote. Car can be the same but not often. Suspect new battery needed in the remote, but its pain to fit, so I haven't.
One of the fog/driving lights in the front bumper has a hole in it.The bonnet can be a pain to open. I do plan to grease it, but haven't got round to it.Only got one key. MOT expires soon ( its on the 6 month extension)Doesn't have air con!There is a slow puncture on the o/s front wheel - needs pumping up every couple of weeks (or even fixing!).There may be other issues but this is all I can remember. Remember its sold as spares or repair.
I bought this as a cheap second car. I was told its had a new bonnet in the past due to an accident, but that was it. Its done the job and not let me down, but I really don't like it so have another car lined up to replace it. If you buy it you will need to be insured to drive it, but you do so at your risk. Its never failed on me, but I'd be happier if it was towed away.
Note - I haven't found the V5 yet. Its here somewhere and I should be able to find it. I do have a scan of it so the ownership can be transferred online if it doesn't show up. Its registered in my name at this address.
More photos to follow.
Please be aware I work long days so may take a while to get back to you.
