£12,000 no offers. No haggling, No part outs.

This car was built on a fully working N14. The car has done nearly 110,000 miles. The engine build has done around 5,000 miles (1,000 of those were running it in). I still use daily so the mileage will creep up, but we're nearing winter so these miles will be short now. It's likely there's other bits in there I've forgotten about!

I'm sure anyone that knows these cars can appreciate the amount of money and labour that's been chucked into this project.

Bad bits:

Paint is showing it's age and unfortunately was keyed when I bought it; I did a shit job of the cover up so needs some love. It was next on my list to address.
Front Tyres have a winter left on them.
Rear wheel has some clouding from a stone chip - the reality of diamond cut finishes!
The powdercoat on the cage is cracked, some days it looks perfect, other days it has a crackle effect. Looks like I meant for the effect, but alas, I didn't!

Any questions? It's better to DM me on insta: @racecar.88 as it's easier to get hold of me there.

Have to say that is an insane deal for what's been spent on that. Someone will have bought themselves a mega spec'd car for the price. Good luck with the sale. Happy to post something up on @clementspeedshop if you want me to.

Thanks dude I'd appreciate it.

I'm kinda hoping nobody offers me the money.

I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Not doubting the work done, but £12k for a 12 year old mini that only has 2 seats (sadly that’s how most will look at it) and modified to someone else’s taste, very narrow market.

Ive spent a lot on previous cars, they have to be parted out to recoup as much money as possible.

I would respectfully disagree. If people know just how much money it takes to modify a mini, then one that's had all that work done for that price truly is a great deal.

So many mini owners are going "clubsport" spec and ditching the rear seats etc. I think the market whilst narrower than for a non modded car, it's still wide enough for those in the know.

Put it this way, if I had the knowledge I have now on building a car to a similar engine spec etc I'd snap his arm off for £12k 😉

Then you don’t understand what I said or how the used car market works.

It has a very very small group of potential buyers…interestingly not including yourself!

Thanks for your input Keith. I've been doing this Mini thing a little bit longer than yourself.. I'm not selling my bone stock Countryman SD here (not until after Winter anyway).

I'm selling a car that's had probably had +£20k chucked at it and if someone comes along that wants all the work done without the waiting and expense; it's here.

I don't need the money; this what the car is worth to me to let the project go. I certainly don't give a single fuck what the perceived market value is and if I still have it in two years; I'll be fine and still be doing more mods probably.

It's still £12k and it's still a great car.

Then I hope you enjoy driving it for many years to come.

As for “I’ve done this Mini thing longer than you” Well the car is irrelevant, all modified cars have narrow markets, so high prices take time to sell, I’ve been there so many times with my cars, so yes I know the same market well enough.

Good luck with the sale, I’m sure it’s a great car, but will anyone want it, yet alone pay £12k for it….only time will tell.

Im not saying it’s not worth more than a standard car, just at £12k it’s up against some much better and newer cars and that’s how 99.9% of potential buyers will see it, it’s always the way. Let’s hope the 0.1% turns up.

A few more posts from you stating it's overpriced will really help I'm sure.
