263,000 Miles MINI Cooper R53. JCW. The car has been my daily driver for the last 9 years. It had seen better days when I bought it. Therefore over the coming years I have spent a small fortune on it.
New paint job. New trim all round. Interior has been upgraded with a set of Sparco Milano leather sports seats. JCW Alcantara steering wheel, New JCW Wheels. All original factory parts. All to spec.

Apart form normal wear and tear items it still has the original engine and gearbox. You would never know it's covered over a quarter million miles. Still pulls nicely through all the gears.

Sorry no photos, but you'll have to take my word for it. It's immaculate. Very much my pride and joy.

135000 miles - 2002 (52 plate), I am the 5th owner, prior to me its not been loved much so its a bit rough around the edges. Apart from water pump, radiator and a few misc parts iv'e spent no more than £250 on it , but a lot of my time (but if I was to pay myself @ £90 per hour it would owe me £1100 !).

My HIGH mileage MINI

Right now I have 280,500+ miles on my car. I bought my 2004 Cooper S new with 6 delivered miles. Put 49K the first year (11 months, 26 days) In the past two years I've only driven it 2,500 miles due to use of other vehicles and a 5 month sailing adventure to the Caribbean. It's been to 49 states, 7 Canadian Provences and Mexico (I live in Virginia). I've had two clutches replaced and 1 slave cylinder, 4 windshields, 2 sets of rotors, 1 supercharger/water pump replacement, 1 engine mount, 2 ignition coils (1 was faulty), 1 headliner reupholstered, 1 window regulator (drivers side), 1 heater core replaced, 2 fuel filters, 2 crank position sensor o-rings, Shift and E-Brake boot covers replaced, 2 xenon headlights, and a few other small things. For 15 years old now, I am very pleased with the reliability. Only left me stranded once and it was a run-flat tire with sidewall damage on my way to Pikes Peak. Now when I travel far, I carry a full-size spare.

incidentally, I just bought a 2003 Cooper S from CoPart, with supercharger problems, but otherwise in goo shape with 84,400 miles. PTO gears are shot. Will get a rebuilt unit after Christmas, already removed it from the car.
