She has been wanting a MINI for a long time so I finally pulled the trigger. I am really surprised how much fun I have had driving this little car; I never expected to enjoy it this much. Before I give it to her I did some things to the car that from my research seem to be par for the course considering the mileage:
- Cleaned all injectors and replaced one of them
- Replaced the valvecover
- Replaced the exhaust manifold and cat converter
- Replaced the alternator belt
- Replaced coil
- Installed 4 Continental all weather tires
- Oil change
The radio LED has missing pixels when it is hot outside so that needs to be addressed and then it is ready to go for her and will hopefully be a fun and reliable car for her.



On the pixel thing check out this: https://www.northamericanmotoring.co...08-mcsa-2.html
