Update - 2019 + 2020

2019:

  • Auto Gearbox refresh at 70k miles with Cassidy Auto Specialists. Refurbed torque converter and replace fluids. Only a small amount of wear found. Nothing abnormal...but this soaked up most of 2019 Mini budget.
  • Alternator failed on the way to NCT, new alternator fitted by local mechanic MountTown Motors. Turns out to be an utter professional and he'll now do all work on the car.
  • Took the car up to the Mini Magic event to celebrate 60 years of mini in Ireland and a couple of laps for fun around the local go-kart track with the 2 other astro R53s:
