I've just joined and thought I'd say hello as we've (car will mainly be for the mrs) just bought a 2007 Cooper S.
Colour is Lightening Blue with white roof / mirrors / bonnet stripes and comes with Chilli pack (which I believe contained half leather, passenger seat height adjustment, Xenons, Manual air con, Interior lighting package, On-board computer, Front fogs and Velour floor mats at the time - someone more knowledgeable please feel free to correct me), visibility pack, exterior mirror pack, rear PDC, electric pano sunroof, mini hi-fi upgrade, sun protection glass, JCW
MFSW and armrest.
After seeing a few rough and low spec examples at indie garages and reading many timing chain horror we decided to go for a Mini Cherished AUC to give us a bit of peace of mind with the warranty etc.
Pick the car up on Friday. After a brief 20 min test drive I think I'm more excited than the mrs! It's such a rapid little thing, I was grinning the whole time. Great fun and can't wait to drive it some more.
