Long time owner joins Forum!!

Hello All

I've had an R56 JCW for 5 years. It's a fully loaded Cooper S Astro black with red leather lounge interior, which the first owner had the full works JCW kit added to, cost him c 30K! Cost me half that at two years old and 8K miles.

I bought it as a fun car for me and my wife uses it as a daily driver. Had all sorts of things go on it - eats chain tensioners, sunroof replaced, lambda sensors replaced, but I love it so keep paying the bills. Only 45K miles on a Feb 2007 car, so not worth chopping in. Its a joy and a totally different drive to my other car.

Been a Mini man all my life, had two original minis and an R52 Cooper before the current car.
