Hello from a cooper S owner.

Sold my 83 classic mini which is a shame but purchased a 2003 Cooper S

35,000 miles, 1 lady owner, retired.

In mint condition!

Can't wait to pick it up on saturday.

Hi and welcome to MINI2!

I hope you enjoy driving your R53 MCS as much as your classic Mini.

Very nice and looks completely standard, would be a real shame to do any mods to it after all that time too, wouldnt it?

I pick her up on Friday. It is completely standard. Since new it has been to the shops and back every other day so can't wait to give it a good clear out on the M6 on the way home. Feed it some Vpower and enjoy it.

Had a couple off issues with the MOT.

brake pipes and bushes but they are sorted them out.

Picked it up today and love it, surprised at how stiff and noisy the 6 speed box is. I've read they are like this.

It's all stamped and done on mileage so only being 35000 miles the last one was end of 2011. I'm just not used to it compared to my old mini.
