It’s time to buy a new car so somewhat reluctantly selling this one 8) I’d trade it in, but rather sell it to a good home instead.

Selling for $x,xxx or nearest offer.
KBB says excellent value is $21,520. If you or someone you know wants a reliable new model MINI, this is it. Will take cash or a cashier’s check drawn from a local major bank. Make me an offer?

Indi Blue with White top, Lapis Blue gravity leather, anthracite dash, iPod adaptor, 2 spoke multi-function wheel, 17″ alloy s-lites, DSC, chrome grille, clear lights, sport package, many factory/dealer extras.

History: This car appeared several times in MC2 magazine, parked in the winner’s circle at Blackhawk auto museum, has done parade and HPDE laps at Laguna Seca and Thunderhill Raceway (never raced), as well been in lots of Mini/MINI shows.

One owner, very well maintained 2003 MINI Cooper S with complete service history. about 59k miles. Has extended 100k mile warranty ’till Sept 2008, tire and wheel coverage, gap protection, permaplate, and other goodies.

She had white bonnet stripes and body color grille which I still have. I’ll pay for new bonnet stripes if you want them 🙂

Some minor parking dings otherwise great inside and out, completely stock, no mods. Would be a perfect daily driver or convert it to a SCCA/BMW spec racer!

OH DID I MENTION IT GETS AVG. 29 MPG? Yeah, getting about 39 MPG on the open road!! Woo!!
This is going up on Craigslist next week so make me an offer if you’re interested, no reasonable offer refused.

Note: Will consider trade for a 356 speedster or Lotus Elise, hah! ;D

Update: 3/2008: Yep, we still have Mindi. I decided to keep her a bit longer whilst I await the arrival of my 2008 smart ForTwo!

Update: 6/14/08: Sold Mindi to Terry Smith from the MOASF club, enjoy her, Terry!
