2002 Stunning early BMW Mini Cooper, 12mth MOT, leather seats For Sale

Early build (Feb 2002) Mini Cooper 1. 6 with Chilli Pack. Mileage 104, 750, MOT runs until 2/ 12/ 22 - over a year. 7 former keepers - our second car for a year now.

Full leather interior in superb condition - no rips, tears, or noticeable wear anywhere
Modern Bluetooth stereo (handsfree/ audio)
Electric windows, electric mirrors, remote central locking (1 remote key and 1 spare)
Air conditioning working well, non sunroof model
Tyre pressure monitoring system
ABS and traction control front driver/ passenger/ side airbags
Factory 16" alloys
Dateless/ ageless plate R8 NST stays with the car

Bodywork is superb for a daily driver that is nearly 20 years old - plenty of 5 year old Minis don't look nearly as clean as this. There are 2-3 very small door dings and the inevitable stone chips to the nose. The bright red paintwork is superb, unfaded, and shines up beautifully. There is a tiny piece of lacquer crazing on the upper surface of the white roof spoiler and that's it. Alloys present well but bear a few marks that have been touched in over the years - no corrosion or heavy kerbing though.

The interior is in fantastic condition all round, never smoked in or carried pets. The seats as mentioned are unmarked, the carpets and fitted mats are clean and the steering wheel is in good order. There is some very slight wear to the handbrake and gearknob reflecting the car's mileage but nothing else of note. The original factory supplied tiny toolkit and first aid kit are present.

Mechnically this car is flawless. I have a pile of invoices an inch thick and the car went through the MOT within the last few hundred miles - the only advisory being rear tyre wear, though both rear tyres are on 4mm tread. Just within the last year this car has had:

- Brand new battery just fitted with 3 year warranty
- Steering top mount replaced (Mini weak point) for MOT 9/ 11/ 21
- New Bosch alternator and quality radiator fitted with coolant flush 22/ 9/ 21
- Drive shaft seal/ rocker cover set/ ball joint/ oil seal (all common oil leak failure points) replaced 19/ 08/ 21
- AC regas 10/ 6/ 21 - system remained ice cold all summer so no leaks
- New front tyres fitted 23/ 04/ 21 - very little mileage covered since
- Brand new rear wiper / washer motor, arm and blade (classic early Mini failure point) fitted December 2020
- More smaller jobs done than I can remember as we've gone along. I even reshelled the remote key in brand new plastics so it's as good as new!

Just prior to us taking ownership the car had all new brake discs and pads plus new springs on all four corners, and a full service. It had a new power steering pump, clutch, plugs and coils in 2017 at 85k miles.

This Mini starts eagerly with no warning lights staying on, idles perfectly, pulls strongly through all the gears and stops positively. There are absolutely no leaks, creaks, knocks or bangs, no smoke from the exhaust, and the car does not use any fluids. The temperature gauge remains in the middle in all conditions and all electrical systems work as the car left the factory. It's still a great, fun car to drive - far more analogue and rewarding than later Minis - and regularly draws positive comments on parking up.

This Mini has obviously been cared for exceptionally well by all owners and has had every early Cooper failure point that I can think of taken care of . With this condition and specification I can only see this type of car going up in value but we have no need of a second car anymore so with great regret it must go. I have priced according to the condition, which is head and shoulders above almost every other early Cooper out there.
