(Apologies for the personal/site news but this may interest a few of you) Yes it’s official, I’m selling my MINI. Due to some new needs and some shifting priorities I’ve decided to sell my fully loaded 2007 MINI Cooper S with almost every conceivable factory and JCW option.

The car would be over $38,000 to replicate with all accessories but with only 10,000 miles I’m selling it for $30,000. While I could probably get a more for the car, I would rather pass on a great car to an MF reader who will enjoy it as much as I have for a really fair price.
