minor dings, binnacle over the instrument panel missing, a/c not workin (gettin a used compressor thrown in with it), hydragas need pumpin up, pulls to the left, original stereo missing
on the plus side, gearchange is excellent, clutch seems to still have some life, it already had the blown headgasket, and was repaired with new stretch bolts, so hopefully it will last a while
Other known issues with these cars:
gear linkage can get worn, troublesome to fix, coolant pipes corrode, hydragas system seals eventually fail and are unavailable, but there's a coil-spring kit for about 12k....usual need for new balljoints etc at this age.......
and...............gonna have to sell the MINI cuz I have no room for another toy
