shame about the roof, it'll go soon enough regardless, it isn't that much for a car that's been nowhere, and if it was a proper show car it will be clean underneath so to many a no brainer, it's only here and fb that these car's values get talked into the ground imo, a lot for a car to use as a tuning base though, hope they keep the original bits if they do that.

Yeah, I know what you mean. It wouldn't need much to get that looking like brand new. The seats don't even look like it's been sat on!

Its a lot of money for a pre facelift mini with some stuff stuck on.

Low mileage but is it worth the price as a GP can be picked up for similar money or less granted with higher mileage.

Probably worth buying if using a few thousand miles a year and keeping forever.

One is an expensive stock mini and the other is an expensive mini with lots of miles.

All a jcw is a stock cooper s, with a few bolt ons, pre facelift, a few less bolt ons. Not worth a wank

V nice indeed but it's not 10k's worth.

JCW pack cars are nice and offer a good tuning base on top of a stock S, but by the time you've done a filter, catback exhaust, colder plugs and a pulley on a regular S (which frankly isn't big money stuff....perhaps with the exception of the exhaust) the cars basically JCW level there or thereabouts anyways. Certainly knowing what I know now about R53's I wouldn't ever personally be paying a premium for a JCW. Also bear in mind you can just about buy a higher mile GP for that sort of money if rear seats weren't an issue....admittedly it's scraping the GP barrel but id far rather that than a low mile regular car. Also fair to say most GP's regardless of the mileage will have lived cosseted lives so there's that to consider as well.

This car isn't even a facelift either. Do have to say though it's not every day you see Gravity leather seats in that shape....shiny and baggy as hell is the norm :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:
