Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit

aka R53 GP1

To learn more about the car visit the forum – which I also run –

108853 Miles (But daily driver).
MOT’d til August.
Honest and by no means concourse edition car, but solid and looked after.
Looks proper mint when given a polish and a wax as can be seen in photos linked below.
Oil changed every 5000 Miles or so. Record in service book.
Had usual big stuff done inc supercharger service at 70k, cam chain and tensioner at 50k. Gearbox oil done at 70k, then again at last oil service (used Redline to eliminate the wookie).
Clutch and rear main oil seal end of 2018.
New Bosch Battery about two years ago.
Drive shafts and front bearings last year.
Vibratechnics top engine mount.
Powerflex bushes up front.
Genuine front top mount kit fitted 2020 L&R.
New flexi joint on the de-resonated JCW exhaust about 2 months ago.
Standard JCW airbox with ITG filter (and a spare to swap out when servicing – so you’ve always got a clean one !!).
Nice Pioneer BT DAB Head unit that uses the steering wheel controls and a Pioneer flat sub in the boot that I’ll swear was made with the R53 in mind.
Original OEM mini head unit included.
Spare wheel (TD1.2 in Black) and all jack blocks and documentation manuals in original Mini wallet.
Mini mobility kit (jack/foam/compressor etc).
ScanGauge II fitted.
Kavs 15% Pulley.
Aux belt fitted last year 2021.
R56 JCW Brembos front and rear.
HEL braided stainless brake lines front and rear.
Two keys & locking wheel nut adaptor !
New alternator 2019.
New power steering pump 2018.
More receipts and documentation than you can throw a locking wheel nut at.

Basically all the things you would do for a loved and cherished daily driver.

Bad bits.
Will need rear discs removing and skimming, to remove the high edges on them to pass next MOT. Still good thickness apparently.
Lacquer peel on a spot on the bonnet and a paint spot on the supercharger cowl – see photo.
A kiss that’s not broken the paintwork on the rear bumper, just left a flex that you can see if it’s pointed out and in the right light.
Needs new front drivers mat and a good valet inside.
Bit of trim that runs along the bottom of the right hand sill skirt (the black plastic bit), keeps popping out at the front, needs stripping off and securing back in place.
Couple of chips on the TD Motorsports but nowt drastic.
OEM GP Wheels are no longer with the car.
It’s in Oxfordshire and you’re welcome to view.
Test drives only with valid insurance and full asking price deposit.

Looking for £8500 OVNO, which I think is an honest price for an honest car.

Lots of photos here :
