    Hi im new here

    everyone knows me as GRIFF ,my wife bought a abused 2003 MINI COOPER S

    in first week it needed 4 new tyres ,complete clutch, fuel pump ,new brake pipes as failed MOT on the old ones, and of course a good wash lol

    had car around 6 mnths yesterday i had to change the water pump so whilse doing it i fitted a new pump to block ,a new thermostate and housing , a new radiator and completely flushed the system and put new antifreeze in

    i also noticed it needs a new Serpentine Belt (which ive just ordered also with the tool for the tenstioner )

    SO AS YOU CAN SEE FROM ABOVE I DEF HAVE A JOB ON KEEPING THIS MINI ON ROAD LOL but once all done should last for a fair few years

    now today the electric window (drivers side ) has packed in !!!!!!!!!! ive done everything it says online ie hit near speaker ,try reset etc but no joy,looks like its the mech out and some diy hopefully its the motor not the cables as motor in sure i could fix but cables mean new ones and getting them here quick seeing its near xmas will be a night mare

    anyway thats me saying hi and hello, im sure i will be asking lots of questions on the forum and requiring lots of help, if was the classic mini i would have no probs with that as i built mine from ground up lol

    Hi Griff...Merry Christmas and Welcome to M/A! :Thumbsup:

    How many miles/kms are on your MINI? That might give us here a clue as to what find wearing out and you might expect to fix in the near or far off future. Also, some pics are also always welcome. :cornut:
