United-Kingdom Newbie,,worried already.

Hi,
Been a member for a few days looking for specific problems with minis, not getting my Mini , R50 02 plate til Fri.
Viewed last weekend, a private seller who's getting a company car so needs shot soon
as she says due to insurance running out. Apart from big dent in N.S. door the mini is
in mint condition, only 66k and handles like a dream, especially round those corners
But at only £2550 for it's condition year and mileage I'm worried it's too good to be true!
Previous M.O.T does show previous coolant problems, leaks etc fixed now but have read
it can impact on head gaskets?? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

Well BIG dent would put a lot of people off, it would cost at least £750 to fix professionally, whether its reskinned or a new door fitted, you dont get much done in a body shop for under £1000 now.

So without the dent you would be looking at £3000+ maybe?

United-Kingdom Wow, expensive.

Thanks for your reply The Nun,,,must admit my heart sank reading it, have only done cursory searching and thought as I'd found a door from a breakers on eBay for around 50quid it would be a cheap fix! Seriously reconsidering buying it now.
