  1. Guest - Welcome to the new Motoring Alliance Site! Steve, MCS02 and I were up until the early hours this morning working to get it done... as you can see it took us a bit longer than expected to get Phase 1 up and running. We are not 100% there.. its a journey. For site updates, "How Do I" and feedback please use the Announcements, How Do I, Feedback Forum (Links below). Like building a car.... its never done... and thanks for your patience

    Look a 2006 JCW GP! Only 3,200 bucks! In the description it says "2011 Mini Cooper John Cooper Works Hardtop, 6 speed manual transmission, Adaptive Xenon headlights, Sport Suspension, Harmon Kardon stereo, sirrus xm, Bluetooth, Sport button (changes throttle response and steering input), DTC off button
    This is the full factory John Cooper Works edition with the larger twin spool turbo"

    Um yea.

    It also has an automatic.... If memory serves me correct, I don't think any of the 1st gen GP's came with auto's...

    When I bought my 2009 you couldn't get an auto even in the JCW.... I seem to remember some old story that John Cooper requested that no JCW be offered in auto.... This of course fell by the wayside.... As all things tend to do.... eventually....

    Edit:
    Well apparently upon closer inspection it has both.... Must be a very rare Skunk Works with an early automanual....:thumbsup:

    Ok gang. I got an email from the GP owner, with lots of pictures. I have a new contest. Who can thank up the best replie. Here is what she said.

    "I am glad you are one of the people interested in buying my 2006 Mini John Cooper. It's still for sale, with 59,000 miles, manual transmission, never involved in any accident,needs nothing but a new owner. It was my ex husbands most precious thing, garage kept since new and it comes with a clean and clear title. I have the title on my name and i am not interested in trades or payments.I am selling it at this price ($3,200) because I just went through a divorce and when it has finished, I remained the owner and won the custody of my daughter. I, along with my daughter decided to sell the vehicle and we moved to my sister in Evart, MI trying to start a new life. The vehicle brings me bad memories and some money would be helpful in this point of life. Besides, there are a lot of things which have priority now, so, this has to go.
    If you are ready to buy it, just email me with your full name and full address including the street number, zip code and phone number, so I can notify eBay that you are selected as my possible buyer and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.

    If you are interested i will be waiting your reply with the requested info asap
    Thank you"

    Maybe someone computer savvy can email them a virus so they can't use this to actually rip anyone off? There's bound to be someone on this forum who knows how to do that.

    Think if I floated them an offer of $2,500 they might take it?

    That guy must really want to sell that GP if he's driving all over the country posting on local Craigslists....

    I wonder what's wrong with it.....:D

    It's a gated community, which should serve well to protect the investment.
