Hyper Blue Part Deux

As some might remember my 05 Cooper S in hyper blue went up in a cloud of smoke back in 2009. It was a car that meant a huge amount to me. Alas 9 years later I've tracked down an identical one with almost even the same reg (24 cars apart in 2005)
I'm collecting it tomorrow morning!!

Brilliant news Niall , its difficult to escape from the R53 , good time to buy one as they are going to appreciate in price over the next months and years . not many made in the big scheme of things and being so much a 'drivers' car has all the things a 'collectors' car needs , well sorted by now and very reliable if maintained correctly , only things they need really is a decent brake conversion and some power upgrades ie 15% pulley . airbox mod , decent remap , anyway best of luck with the new purchase and get some photos up ,

Collected this morning and forgot how great the supercharger sounds. Just needs a good service now and a few tweaks.
