Hi everyone,

We are about to embark on buying our first Mini. We only have a budget of £7k, but this would seem to get us a 51 - 52 plate Cooper with approx 30,000 - 40,000 on the clock (or possibly a little less).

I've have bought and sold a lot of cars privately so know the basics - what I'm really after is some model-specific things to look out for and check. It's possible I will be buying privately so I really need to be thorough with checking as much as I can before buying.

Apologies if I've posted this in the wrong section - but can anyone point me in the direction of such a checklist, or at least list the most common faults / things to check etc etc?

Many thanks in advance!

Good luck with your MINI

Check all the electrics work - as everything is electric - check everything!

Check the remote key for central locking works - mine didnt and its only a 3 1/2 year old car.

MINIS really suffer from stone chips on the bonnet - take a close look for them!
