I meant to start this back in June when my MINI turned 10 years old...forgot.

Zippy is a June 2002 build Cooper delivered to me in July 2002, so I've also owned this one for 10+ years.

Any other 10 year MINI owners out there?

I have a friend who got his 2002 Cooper S in March, it was one of the first S models into the country and he feels he was lucky to get it.

Next month we're going to spend quite a bit of his money doing some improvements and maintenance, including a new clutch, new suspension bushings and a new Power steering pump and hoses, with the idea that he'll have it at least another 10 years and another 100K!

Mine is a June build 2002 Cooper delivered in August. Still going strong, and no plans to get rid of it anytime soon.

June must have been a high production month, the 02 Cooper I had was also a June build...

I agree! I thought I was at a shockingly low mileage at just over 71K in roughly the same time.
