My mother-in-law fell involve with my wife's R57 and decided she wanted a Mini. We found her a 2009 clubman here and picked it up for her. It will be a month or so before she can come pick it up. Its a very nice S. The guy we bought it from got it for his son, who decided he wanted a truck. Anyway he went through the car and fixed anything wrong with it. He even took off the turbo and intercooler and clean them out. He did not know to have the car walnut blasted. It has 77k on it. When I drove it I was impressed with how quiet and smooth it runs, much quieter then the Helmet or my wife's R57. Yes its an N14. So before she picks it up or my wife takes it to her I plan on doing a few more things to make sure its ready for her. She is 70 and lives in a small town north of Chattanooga, everything is close so she does not drive far. I plan on changing the oil and through a couple extra oil filters in the back for her. The sunroof needs some oil, it sticks everyone in a while. I am considering having it walnut blasted even though I don't think it is needed at this time. I just want it to be as trouble free as posable. If anyone can think of anything els I should do I am open for suggestions. I'll post pictures tomorrow.
