Recently brought a 2007 Cooper as a 2nd car after last owning a 1275gt in the early 90's when I was young. It's a very clean, low mileage car that wasn't too far from me in Derby, UK.
Loving the new car, and enjoying tinkering with it. So far I have swapped our all 4 runflats for none runflats, swapped the interior for full leather (then swapped it back again as I didn't like it)! Clayed the paintwork, heated back the plastic body trim, fitted some side stripes and fitted a Bluetooth kit.
Have also seen the thread here for retro fitting a spare wheel, so should be doing that shortly.
This forum looks like a great source of information, hope I can contribute too.

I've found a space saver from a Rover that is in great shape. It's 125 80 15 instead of 115 80 15, but that will actually bring it closer to my 4 full sized tyres which are 205 55 16. Need to see if it fits under my rear floor though. After that, I'll look out for the mounting kit, or maybe try to make my own! If I have some success then I'll put pictures on here.
