New member and new Mini owner
Just bought my first "new" mini yesterday
It's a lovely wee Cooper with Chilli pack, full leather and panoramic roof from 2003 with only 56k (90k km) on the clock and one careful lady owner since new (I know her so I can verify this!!)
Delighted with it as is my wife. Just got rid of my MkV Golf gti so needed something else fun.
Back when I was 17 yo in 1982 I got my first mini - a proper red one with sliding windows and string door openers. It was only 6 months younger than me and had a genuine 36k on the clock (my grandmother's pal had again bought it new and only driven back and forward to church on a Sunday)
Subframe went so that one died. Looking forward to being back in a mini 32 years on
