New R50 Cooper facelift owner

Hi All,

New to the forum having recently bought a 2005 BRG R50 Cooper facelift.

Quite a tidy little car, half decent spec (body colour roof and mirrors, AC, Pepper Pack, Alarm, Visibility Pack, 18" JCW R105 diamond cut - and a bit scabby - alloys, Kenwood Bluetooth mechless HU) but sadly is poorly as it currently keeps venting coolant despite a new thermostat, housing and cap. Rather praying it's not the head gasket.......

Has a few minor rough edges (bit of accident damage and wheel refurb mainly) but plan to sort in due course

Love it though, great fun to drive, goes well even in its current state (I suppose a 116hp NA 1.6 in something weighing barely a ton helps) and bags of character. Can't believe I didn't get one sooner.
