I'm considering buying a Mini as a second car. I've been looking for something around a 03-05 reg, miles not an issue really as long as its been well looked after. Anyway, I did a bit of searching online last night and found one that takes my fancy, however, I was wondering if anybody on here might be familiar with it -
It's a 04 reg Cooper S which was featured in a copy of Modern Mini magazine a few years back. It has had a GT T conversion by a company called Sender in Dorset, apparently. It also seems to have had quite a bit of work done on the inside as well, upgraded stereo, Sparco steering wheel etc. First part of reg is HF04.
Lastly, is there anything I should really watch out for when looking to buy a Mini of this age? The car above has a fsh, but I don't fancy buying a pup.
I sent the seller a message asking how many past owners it has had, no reply yet though Yeah, the 20k spent in the last 12 months strikes me as odd. Asked them what the money had been spent on, so will hopefully find out.
Getting a specialist to take a look sounds like a good idea.
