2002 r53 mini cooper s
was originally grey but has been painted pink at some point
mot just expired
101k miles
full leather seats interior is pretty clean

shell has a few marks around it as you would expect boot lid has some blistering around the handle shown in the pics lower part of the rear bumper has a hole in it due to the exhaust sitting too close to it and melting a small hole


I bought this as a project which the previous owner spent a fortune at a local garage trying to fix a running issue.

1 new timing chain kit later and the timing reset (2 teeth out)she was running sweet as a nut well for just under a week when it started to rattle I suspect its a big end bearing that's failed on it.

the cars had:
new radiator fitted,
new toyo sports cat back stainless exhaust
new petrol tank strap
new cam, crank and both map sensors
new timing chain kit
15% kavs supercharger pulley
full service
brand new 15" alloys and tyres
recent brakes (I have new front and rear pads since the car has been sitting)

like I say car is spares or repair due to suspected bearing failure I suspect due to the broken parts of the old timing chain guides causing oil starvation. when I fitted the chain kit I removed the sump and retrieved all the broken parts out but the damage must have been done

I know im taking a hit on it but trying to recoup some money back on it

looking for £750ono
car is in fort William
