miniworld - http://www.miniworld.co.uk/
and
mini magazine - http://www.minimag.co.uk/

they both have classifieds in the back (miniworld is more common altho it is often hard to find so it would be easier to subscribe)

Thanks folks.....have my heart set on the Blue one, spoken to the owner it's had new suspension, 4 new tyres and a new stainless steel exhaust fitted. Also given a full service and a years MOT two weeks ago.

Just a bit concerned that a few of you think it may be overpriced, think I'll try to get the price down first and see what he says.

Hi, welcome to TMF!

I couldnt see the green one on autotrader...
But the blue one ('97 R) does come with 1 years MOT and 6 months tax, and new tyres and brakes, which is good for you being your first car - hopefully a years trouble free motoring.

However, the green one does have much lower milage, see how you feel about the colour when you have a look!
Prices do seem a fraction too high (especially for the higher milage one), see what you can haggle him down to.
Nice pic by the way! (of the mini of course :( )

Oh, you sometimes get a good one on here... Pistonhead's Minis

The 25 never had a folding roof even as option so must have been fitted at a later date.

well altho i am in no way close to working out whether mine is factory fitted, i have read that a ahndful were made with the folding roof as a test, but it was soon decided that they wouldnt continue it. so mine may be one fo those, ill try and track done where i saw it


I stand corrected, although if it was factory fitted it might be the only one.

Mum was a girl racer about 25 years ago and had a brand new PINK mini special.........the floor leaked from the day she got it


Those are becoming very rare now, and looks as if leaks did come as standard. LOl

Going to see the Blue one tomorrow at 8pm :(

Hopefully its as mint as the man says it is & I can make an offer ^_^

Any advice on price?? I thought of offering £3k (700 less than advertised) and see where it goes from there!!!

3k is a lot for a mini - it will have to be good to be worth that - the newer ones rust just as much as the old ones, so theres no real reason for them being that much more expensive. not that i'm trying to put you off! both of mine came from ebay - my 20 year old saloon was a grand, and i have had no problems at all with it really. good luck in the search!

Depending on condition I would pay that much.

Theres some on Autotrader / Ebay / miniworld etc 97-99 cars asking £5k+ :|

to be honest I think I we offer 2.5 hes going to tell us to pi55 off!! lol
