Hey everyone, just bought a 2008 Mini Cooper petrol, bought it off my friend with 125k kilometers on it. Very well looked after car and plan to keep it going that way myself. Nice to come across a forum like this. My main background would be in vw, hopefully don’t have too many questions for you all. Looking for a few small bits and pieces to make sure he car just a bit more me.

Hi All,

Recently purchased my 2011 Mini Copper Countryman 1.6 petrol with 111000 kms on the clock. I joined to forum to learn more about Mini's and the TLC they need to keep them sweet and meet some other Mini lovers.

While I'm here may as well say hello.
Alan here. Full time biker the last three years and decided I needed a runabout for winter lately and whatever it was had to be fun.
Wasn't going new so needed to be lower on the tax band if I decide to pay it and have enough grin factor that I would want to drive it as well as the bike.
So in steps the mini.
Picked up a 2004 R53 cooper s that ticked enough boxes to be the one and got it bought.

Few plans for it but it will have to make it through a suspected blown head gasket before I'll consider doing anything with it for fun. But all going well I'll fit a reduced pull and better intercooler. Blackingout all the chrome and a body shop friend wants to try his hand at wrapping so it may well get a color change. But, Head to sort first.
