Good morning everyone, I’ve decided to jump on the Mini bandwagon now as I was in the market for something fun and ive never owned a Mini before.

I was originally going to look at a R56 but got warned off by multiple people regarding the issues with the engine so went to see an R53 instead.

I’ve now picked up a Checkmate which came with a folder of history and every MOT etc…

First thing was getting rid of the side stickers which were coming off due to age! looks a lot better now without them.

I’ll be changing bits and pieces as I go, starting with the stereo which is awful!

I hope the pictures have loaded!!
Thanks for getting this far!

James

Hi James, welcome! Car looks great, how have you found it to be so far?
Ive come from using my Grandad’s Jazz that he had to give up at 93 so the Mini is a much more involved drive, noisy, bumpy, heavy steering…how cars used to be! Also it’s great to have a car I can mess around with!
