Hello! I might be purchasing a mini Cooper S (r53). It has 103,000mi and is an 04. Currently, a ring has lost compression. The car is awaiting to be fixed.
I will be designing a website for the owner of a used car company and saw the car (not for sale yet due to it needing to be fixed). I offered to trade services for the koopa at his cost. I'm kinda excited. I am turned of by the fact that it isn't rwd, but I think it might be a fun car anyways due to it being small and supercharged.
Is there anything I should look for or common problems? Any advice?
If this is your old car, post up! It looks like it has an aftermarket interkooler. All I really noticed at a quick glance.
My 02 zx6r I built. The only thing stock left is the frame, subframe, engine, tranny and carbs.
If I get this koopa, I'm going to try to drop one ball and leave it at that until I save a large lump for it... But as you can see, I got the mod bug.
