:lol:

That one has been all over Facebook for a while now... The rust could be quite tricky to fix...

Lovely colour though 8-)

Well it's met the reserve, but with 8 hours to go and over 90 watching I think we can assume it'll go higher yet :)

Not bad, but it's missing a tow hook cover, the gear change lever is losing the handgrip rubber and the cover is missing off security key pad.

That's rare... So many were 2.5TD oil-burners...

For an XM it's making strong money...

I seem to recall someone saying that they'd love another classic mini one day, well they don't come up often and certainly not one of these: :-D

They harp on about it being a Paul Smith thing in the details...

Also includes:
Numerous invoices and receipts for work carried out since its registration
Original Paul Smith brochure
Original manufacture book pack and service portfolio
Bespoke car cover
Paul Smith Mini key fob

Looks like some folk on e-bay reckon the brochure itself is worth over £100

That's a lovely Mini and in the right colour for me too :)

Well past what my pocket could stand though :(

If its a while since you had a look round a landcrab, let Derek show you around

In its 2200 form it was the first vehicle I went solo in after passing my driving test.

Something funny going on, I buy the C4 then up came the Rover as a potential replacement for the Subaru, and now a potential replacement for the MX3 when I've used my available pot!! :-D
