Got an email today, the Chrysler dealer has finally got all the work done to the mini and I should be able to pick it up by the weekend. This was going to be a winter/summer car besides my gas guzzler dodge ram truck. It took them so long to get it to where I wanted it I found a 2004 Chrysler sebring touring sedan with 70,000 miles on it. It's in excellent shape (for $1500) and just needed two rear shock hats and rockers for a safety certificate. It looks like the mini is now going to be babied 😎

Decided to put the winter wheels on my son's new (2004) Mini today. Every bolt was frozen..it too me 2 hours to swap tires. I broke a few tools......cussed quire a bit and my back is killing me. The rear wheels were spinning on the ground as i tried to break them loose.. I put so much never seize on those bolts it should never happen again. Never had a car that did not have lug nuts.....Now I know why no one else uses these.

My S sits with its battery tender,
Our Blue sits on its fantastic winter “shoes”,
Both all snug in their closed garage,
Both laughing at their poor cousin, Linus the Waragler,
Linus is sitting out in the open on the driveway awaiting the upcoming snow fall.
Ha, says Linus when there is six inches of snow on the roads,
His owner pulling a nice 4WD drift around the upcoming corner,
Who’s having fun now, Says Linus.

It’s all fun, Enjoy!

We have a bunch of ice and trees down. :(

The R52 needed anew battery and I also finally replaced the starter at 283K. Now the AC compessor clutch/ main unit is locked up and I need a new one. The life of almost a 300K MINI

Wow, you got your mileage out of that starter and AC clutch. My AC clutch went at 89k miles... replaced that... now the compressor is on its last legs at 125k.

Yep, I ran the AC in the R52 like maybe 5 times a year just to make sure it turns and runs. The starter I cleaned off the terminals once and greased the little ground cable so it would not rust. They served me pretty well.
