I couldn't stand to see my friends 2005 Mini S waste away in her driveway - I had to save it. One owner, carefully maintained, 65k miles with a rotten automatic transmission issue. Planned to fix the transmission trouble n flip it. I've been told I have too many toys already.. Just fix n flip. Don't get attached to its cuteness. The second I drove it I was hooked, now I won't give it up/ have to fix it. Mechanic says it's a valve body issue, going to fix soon and then drive it like I stole it. I'm interested in adding racing stripes and other mods as I find them. Always room for her in my driveway!
