Default 2005 Mini Cooper s ft:

Hi, I have a Mini Cooper s I recently got, just been driving it to work. But I'm thinking I want something to work on over the winter. The car overall is pretty good, fresh rotors and pads, runs well, good clutch and trans feel.
Car is not perfect, has some common mini issues. Has hesitation when starting takes a few seconds to start. Once started runs well without issue. There is some rust bubbles, under the rear lights. Power steering whines (they have have electric assist which is what makes the noise), only really audible at idle. (Just falls out of the year range for the recal) even though it has the same pump and cooling fan.


ps when I post pics on here hey always end up upside down
