I reckon somewhere in the region of £1400 - £1800, looks like it could be a good little buy too :xxx:

bought it with a month tax and mot so surely now with full mot and tax its worth abit more than 1800?

i payed 1850 for a 87 998 with a pannel rust and rust underneath the lights, overall worse condition than yours but it did have a very good interior aftermarket. i wouldnt sell that for any less than 2000 even though ive been told its a bad time to sell minis. however regarding how much youve spent on it doesnt realy make that much of a differnce we never or very rarey make a profit or break even its just a case of how much you lose.

i was just interested in how much mini owners think its worth
and wenever its worth selling and buying a cooper iinstead of keeping the car and tuning it
