Just thought I'd post something I've just seen on eBay.
I could be wrong, but I think there's something dodgy about this Electric Blue R53 for sale. MINI COOPER S | eBay
The first thing that got my attention was the fact it's a pre facelift car, so 2004 or older, and only with 10k on it. I was potentially interested in the car so sent a message to the seller asking what the mileage was (in case of typo - i.e. 100k instead of 10k) as well as asking if it was HPI clear. This was my reply:
"bought the car cash no hpi.
milage 10123 been well maintained."
Just seems a rather strange reply that's all. Also the description of the car in the advert seems a little strange and doesn't give much info.
Once again, could be wrong, just wanted to give my view on it!
