For sale soon now .... is a nice smart 27,000 mile Cooper S R56 which is totally unaltered and has factory navigation, hill start assist, MFSW, unusual Redwood lounge leather seats and matching trim, gloss black trim, panoramic roof, black carpet. Web Design split rims, reverse parking sensors, auto lights, auto wipers, cruise control.

This is having the engine rebuilt due to chain jump, in fact at the moment I'm opting to make up another core motor and just use the original ancillaries and box, with a new clutch, rings, stem seals, ends, mains, cleaned, and run it as so.

It will get a new MOT.

This is a two keeper car, it has two working remote keys, one brand new I've just supplied, along with an original aerial,

Deposit secures. I doubt it will be available for long but posting here first.

I've swapped the rims for some from my black car which are in far better condition, previously refurbished in a sparkle finish some years ago now but a lot better than what was on here. You can have the originals if preferred but I'm not refurbing them. Or I have some Crown rims I can refurb for you.

Tyres on them are 595's in 215/45 but not much life in them, these will be swapped for 205/45 run-flats or order the tyres you want and send them here/bring them here, and I'll get them installed and balanced if preferred, or keep the 595's for a bit of fun and sort out the rest yourself.

There are some marks, it's still a 15 year old car, a couple of fine scratches here and there but minor, and a few dings also harder to see but one in particular in front of the left rear arch is easily visible yet dent man friendly should you wish to improve it.

Otherwise it is what it is, a genuine 27k vehicle, engine refreshed, very smart, maybe marmite looks but already nice comments.

A nice place to be ;O)

Not putting all the detail up of this one, as usual it's manually cleaned, all went together well, it was built up and started after cranking with plugs out twice leaving the starter to time out in an effort to gain oil pressure and protect bearings, then with plugs in it fired right up quietly. Adaptions reset including Vanos I ran it for a minute during a brief leak check and coolant correction, then took a five minute clip right afterwards which is here if interested: R56S 2006 (56) Engine rebuild initial start - YouTube ;O)

Nice this one, only one little dent to speak off that's noticeable, dent man job but I won't be doing it,

Gave it a run down the road a couple of times to clean the brakes a bit, needs MOT, and it wants some trim refitting after I cleaned the roof drains, but need to renew the roof motor before putting it all back, gave it a bit of a wipe around, looking a fair bit cleaner.

If you’re looking for an R56S, you won’t find better than one that’s seen TLC courtesy of Sean (CarsorBikes).
Still for sale? Price?
