New Zealand G'day from Adelaide, South Australia

Hey all,
I just bought my first BMW MINI COOPER R50 '04 MY05
I've had 3 other mini's before but they were all old Leyland minis.
My first was a 1976 Leyland Panel Van with a 998 stroked to 1100.
My second was a 1275LS (but some goose had fitted a 998 to it)
My third was a Leyland S with another 998
I only really ever drove the panel van as they other two were pretty rough and I ended up using them for parts. The 1275LS was a rust bucket and I cut the roof off to practice and planned to do a proper job on the Leyland S but never got around to it. I'll find some pics and put them up eventually.

Anyway my new style but not so new mini is an '04MY05 mini cooper chilli in liquid yellow with a white roof, mirrors and bonnet stripes. Oh, it's a CVT AUTO. (I had been looking at a blue '03 cooper s but it hadn't been serviced in the last 47k and was the worst condition car I've ever sat in)

I managed to pick it up pretty cheap as the guy selling it was an international student and was moving back to China in the next 4 days and was desperate to sell.

It has lost the high level brake light lens... Left door actuator broken, Right door lock rod has fallen off... And a few bits of paint missing. Other than that it's not too shabby. Has 68k on the clock. He was asking $12,900 and I got it for $9k flat. so I think I did ok (fingers crossed) Due to leaving the country he threw in his navman!
