Another fine JDM Mini ready to bring a smile to your face. With some very minor repairs it could easily be your new daily driver! Clean AZ Title, 29000km on the clock, and priced very low for a car in it's condition. Don't miss out on another fine mini. This would be a wonderful car for any type of person.
This lovely City model is finished in a gloss Olive green that looks brilliant in the sun. A white roof compliments the dark colored body. A few nods to the earlier model minis include glass front markers, rounded side repeaters, wing mirrors, Mk 2 rear lamps, Mk II plate lamps, and retro badging. Just enough to set it apart without going overboard. Color matched flares tie everything in nicely, and provide just enough cover for the new Ultralite wheels with newer tread.
Inside we find the nicer "lightning bolt" patterned interior with matching carpet set. The dashboard is still the original ABS plastic style, which accommodates the A/C and Radio nicely. The steering wheel has been swapped with a Moto-Lita wooden wheel, as have the shift knob and much of the interior hardware to complete the retro look. Although there may be a couple rust spots in the outter sills, a quick peak under the carpet shows you that the inner sills and floor pans are in good shape with no rust.
Under bonnet we find the standard 998, mostly untouched. Although this mini runs and drives as is, we recommend a few things as always, to make sure your mini will be as powerful, safe, and reliable as ever. Currently fitted is a mesh style aftermarket air cleaner, and a centre exit exhaust system, which has a very deep and boisterous sound for a 998. All the brakes are in good order, we do recommend some steering and suspension work, engine maintenance, and to keep up with our AZ summers as always our Mega-Cool cooling system upgrade package, among some other few trivial upgrades. All of these repairs we can do under discount for you, just ask us about it and we can make you a deal included with the purchase of the car.
