2008 Mini Cooper S for sale - 222HP - Wauwatosa, WI

Professionally maintained and tuned 2008 turbocharged Mini Cooper S Hardtop for sale. Modifications on the car were based around the RMW ecu tune which upgrades the car from the stock 173 HP to a healthy 222 HP. The ecu was personally and professionally tuned by Jan Brueggemann of RMW and Chris Schuh Motorsports (CSmotorsports.net) in Lannon, WI. Dyno charts will be available and the Dimsport module which loads the tune will be sold with the car. It contains both the RMW and stock tune; each of which can be loaded in minutes.

The Akrapovic turbo downpipe, Quicksilver exhaust and K&N cold air intake give the car a sporty exhaust note without being obnoxious. Hella 500 driving lights augment the factory lighting and can be turned on and off independently. There are 85000 miles on the car but I would not hesitate taking it on a long trip. It can be enjoyed both on the street as a daily driver or competed with in autocross or track day events. Bilstein Coilover suspension is aggressive enough for competition but livable enough for driving on city streets. Factory rear sway bar replaced with 3 way adjustable H-sport bar. It currently sports 215/45/17 Michelin Super Sport Pilot tires (purchased last March) on matte black Rota wheels. Other small but tasteful modifications include alta shorty antenna, JCW grille, black front trim pieces and beltline blackout. There are rear foglights installed on the back of the car however they are not wired.

The body color is lightning blue and the roof is gloss black. All receipts for maintenance and upgrades will be provided with sale. Pricing reflects the extensive and professionally completed upgrades on this car.

Additional Features:
Mechanical limited slip differential - Not available in new Minis as only an electronic LsD is offered.
6 speeed manual transmission
No sunroof
Anthracite headliner

Additional Notes:
Adult owned,Non-smoker
Winter tire/wheel set included with sale

Known faults:
some paint chips on front hood (bonnet)
parking lot ding on right rear side. (not noticeable from 10 feet)
Took out the factory armrest as it rattled. As a result there is a funky looking plastic hook on the back of the center console. Not noticeable unless the seats are pushed fully forward
Drivers side door plastic is cracked at the bottom of the door.

More photos available on request. Thanks for looking.

Asking $13,500
