I'm Selling my 2004 Mini Cooper base model. Here is the good as follows I bought this car back in March of 2013 I never got to drive the car. The car was in bad shape and needed a lot of work but I had a 2002 mini cooper base model which I lost the engine to water so I took all parts from one to the other and many new parts also resulting into a lot of money. I bought the car for $5500.00 and here is the list
Installed Spot mirrors $5.33
Installed Spark Plugs $21.36
Installed Rear Emblem $33.70
Installed Cabin Filter $16.04

 As you can see lots of work was done to the car for a total of $5892.99 Plus Buying the car for $5500.00 A total of my investment $11,392.99 way over what the car is worth.
Here is the bad now I had the car at a shop and was told it need a trans since the car wouldn't get out of first gear so as you can see I had the trans replaced 3 times all with the same problem so I had the car taken to a mini dealer and was told the computer in the car is the wrong computer since the car will not get out of first gear and was told that I need a new computer so I bought a used computer and it seems you need it programed to the car and since I put that one in I knocked out the other computer so now the car will not start at all. I was told a new computer was $1500.00 plus programing and install time looking at $2000.00 total to do the job but not 100 percent to fix all problems so at this time I have bought another mini and decided to sell this one. This car has to be towed since the car will not start and drive due to the computer has to be programmed. The car has all options looking for a fair price for the car since I have over $11,000 invested plus my time. Thanks for looking and good luck.

2014 Mini John Cooper Works GP

Fri, 16 Nov 2012 12:01:00 EST

About three weeks prior to this brief yet balls-to-the-wall drive on the Spanish island of Mallorca, I saw that Mini USA announced pricing for the keenly anticipated Mini John Copper Works GP. And that number would be - *a-hem* - $39,950 for starters.
I am always intent upon finding the pinnacle of what a certain car promises me, and almost at any cost. Almost. When I think "steaming hatchback," I think of something exactly like this Mini GP, and the steep price doesn't squelch my pleasure. They're only building 2,000 of them anyway, and the units coming to the US will start arriving in owners' hands on March 16 of next year. These buyers will be extremely happy and remorse-free.
Five scorched laps at the very Mini-perfect Circuito Mallorca RennArena showed me all.

2015 Mini Hardtop 5-Door isn't for the country, man [w/video]

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 08:01:00 EST

We've seen it in super high-res glory, and we can even build one on the automaker's website, but the Paris Motor Show marks the official coming out party for the new Mini Hardtop 4 Door (which is what it's called in the US, despite this Euro car having "5 Door" badging). It's a stretched version of the third-generation Mini Hardtop, but with an extra set of doors for rear seat passengers. Think of it as a more useful Clubman, but with a lower ride height and less rugged-ness than the Countryman. Got it? Good.
Engine options carry over from the normal Mini Hardtop range, with a 1.5-liter turbo-three and a 2.0-liter turbo-four offering 134 and 189 horsepower, respectively. The rest of the car is everything else you know and love from the Mini range, just with a more spacious rear bench. And as you'd expect, there's a nearly endless pallet of customization options.
The Hardtop 4 Door arrives at US dealerships just before the end of the year, commanding a roughly $1,000 premium over its three-door kin. Scope out our new live shots in the gallery above, and take in the extensive press blast, below.

Mini finally lands its full blackflip

Tue, 19 Feb 2013 10:01:00 EST

French stuntman Guerlain Chicherit hit the ski slopes of Tignes, France over the weekend - not to enjoy the fresh snow but to perform the first-ever unassisted backlip in a car, which was teased last month.
The unassisted part of the stunt comes from the fact that he Chicherit, in a special rally-prepped Mini Countryman, uses a regular, solid ramp rather than any specially modified ramps that have been used in the past to pull off this stunt. Unfortunately, after 18 months of practice, you'd think the video would be more entertaining by showing more closeups or better angles of the stunt.
Either way, you can check out Chicherit and his Countryman nail the back flip in the video posted below, and Mini has provided a press release and some high-res shots for the stunt as well.
