Bought a '04 Cooper for my wife from a private buyer. Got halfway home and it dumped all its coolant and had a flat battery.
No biggy - I think the low speed fan is dead, and it still has the original factory fitted battery, so it's not a big issue for me to fix...
Other cars - BMW E46 320i Touring, '67 shelby GT350.
I'll be asking lots of questions as I fiddle and learn.
