I don't really know much about the values of Minis these days but consider it much like any other early 90s special edition, maybe with a bit of extra desirability because of the electric roof.

 

They were still based on the City so 53 bhp 1275 carb engine, BRG paint, coachlines, tweed style seats and doorcards, alloys and the roof. Most owners chose to add extras from the usual array of chrome bits and wooden dashboards to bring them "up to spec".

I have a BOC in my garage. What I'd like to know is where should the interior light be? Mine doesn't have one.

On RHD cars its on the left (passanger side) at the top of the B post . I presume you have a LHD car in France.

Somebody with experiance of working on LHD cars would have to confirm this, I would think both RHD and LHD cars would use the same wiring loom which passes down the left side of the roof. there is proberbly an extra loom extention to move the light from the left to right that passes over the center of the roof lining but this would not be long enough to go around the sunroof so they have just left it out.

The car is RHD. Do you have a photo ?

 

Sorry and I can't believe this, I've never noticed it there. Obviously it doesn't work but that's a minor issue. Thanks for waking me up!
