Hi. Just bought a 2003 Mini Cooper S "mechanic special". The saga will commence

So, I guess you can say I am an optimist or a glutton for punishment. I bought a X5 4.4i last year off ebay with a broken timing chain... Its running smooth now, so I am antsy for a project and decided to focus on something more spirited.

Found a 2003 Mini Cooper S near me that seems to have eaten its timing chain guides. Repair bill was more than the owner was willing to eat, so he sold it as a "mechanic special" which was the sort of thing I was looking for.

I live in Maryland, pretty close to Washington DC.

Hi David,
I must be the same kind of glutton. Just bought a 2003 Cooper with the MIL lit and a few other identified problems. Good luck with yours.
