Patrik R53+JCW

Hey Everyone,

My name is Patrik and I am from Slovakia (Europe). My car history is pretty long. My last car was a Mercedes Benz S500 made in 2001. I loved that car unfortunately I had to sell it. I work overseas and it was parked in garage. Even my wife loved Merc but she needed smaller car for daily bases drive. Also 5 liter V8 was a slightly big engine to use in town for short distance drives. So I had to find something smaller but with some charisma. I can categorize myself as a petrol head and I love cars. So I decided to buy small hot hatch because I wanted to have some fun with car too. My wife loves MINI so I decided to go for one of these. I found older but in great shape. It is '03 Cooper S with JCW upgrade. I tried it and I love it! This car is different than the rest of my cars I've had. The cornering is amazing. Also the steering wheels is absolutely spot on and sensitive. And the small engine produces nice power which means a lot fun.

Car is black, with 18'' black wheels RF 205/40 tires, 6 speed manual, xenon lights, cruise control and the most important 210HP. I bought it from the first owner with 105.000km (65.000 Miles) and full service history.

Fantastic looking Mini.
Don't see many Europeans here [or so I've noticed]

Here's to having many fun corners, and supercharger whines in the future!
