United-Kingdom Deposit paid, new MINI Cooper S owner!!!

Hello!

Been reading posts here for a while now in the lead up to buying our first MCS R56 and we've just put a deposit down for a 2007 model. It's actually my wife's car but I'm sure I'll be having just as much fun both on and off road in the driveway.

We're from Sussex, UK and can't wait to collect our new MINI this weekend. Hopefully Sunday. We paid 7000 for a light met blue 2007 (54k miles) and it's immaculate inside and out given it's age. We looked at a lot of used MINI's, both private and trade and found many of them were either tatty bodywork or the service history was patchy. Glad to have found this one, so lets hope it gives us many years of trouble free motoring.


I'll be posting in the maintenance section, but thought I'd mention that it's already had a new timing tensioner and chain (done in 2012). Fully aware of the 'rattle' issues, and thankfully the engine sounds nice and quiet.
