This is a great car at a very realistic price! I don't have to sell it but I want to be able to start my next MINI project. 2005 MINI cooper S Coupe This is a 2005 MINI Cooper S that has been cared for and driven by a conservative driver. This is not my main car so it has never seen a daily commute. This has been my fun car that has been mostly driven in nice weather but has seen rain and only once driven in snow. The car has some chips in the front from driving but again not as many as commuter cars with the same mileage. The picture shows stripes that have been removed as they were very dirty. The date the car went into service is 4/28/2005. The car has only been serviced at Patrick MINI in Schaumburg where I purchased the car used in 2/25/2006. I have followed the factory service schedule and have had extra oil changes performed as well. The Battery was replaced in Feb 2008 under warranty. I just had the inspection #1 done, had the supercharger belt replaced as the car also came with a 15% reduction pully. I also had the thermostat and housing replaced as this is a common problem with the 05's. The final service I had was the passenger side airbag seat sensor was replaced along with the seat cushion cover. This again is a common problem. The seats, they were black vinyl when I got the car used in 2/2006. I spoke to my friend who worked at the MINI dealer where I got the car, (and I bought it out from under him,) and he says that he did not know why it was like that. He said that sometimes they will pull the seats from one car to put in aother one. I like it, the vinyl is high quality and it doesn't show wear like the leather. I have seen 2005 cars with leather and it is starting too look bad. The back seats are almost un-used, perhaps sat in only a half dozen times in the three years I have owned it. There is a small chip in the windshield that only penetrated one layer of the two layers of glass. It is not in the direct line of sight of the driver and will not crack, as it is only one layer of the glass, for this reason I decided to keep the chipped glass. There is a small dimple dent in the rear hatch. It is not huge but it is not something that can be removed with PDR. The low price reflects the damage. The car comes with 3 functional remote keys as well as the emergency plastic key. The tires on the car are high performance summer tires and are not rated for driving in the winter. They are not the factory runflats. This car has not been beat up and only auto-crossed one time and never driven on a race track. The car is turn-key and needs absolutely nothing 341xx Miles Paint Hyper Blue Metallic White Mirrors/Roof Packages Cold Weather Heated Front Seats Heated power side mirrors Heated washer jets Premium Auto Climate Control Air Conditioning Xenon Projector Headlights On Board Computer AM FM CD (MP3) Stereo with Premium Harmon Kardon Premium Sound System Panoramic sunroof with built in sunshade Cruise Control/Steering Wheel Audio Controls Sport DSC – Dynamic Stability Control Limited Slip Differential Front Fog Lights Sport Seats 17” Webspoke wheels (This is a premium true 2 piece MINI wheel.)

If you were to want more done I could cut you a deal. I also have a "carbon" splitter that I have not mounted on the car, it is ABS and looks great. It is in the M7 style and shape. No hardware for it yet. Also, I have an Illinois Ipass in matching carbon. If the buyer is from IL I will include it in the sale and transfer it over to the new owner.
