Kinda given up on the mini as they seem to have common BMW problems. Leaking coolant tanks ect.

Been looking for a new car for me and giving the TS to my wife. This has proved harder than I thought. So far every car I liked has been sold by the time I get to it. I've lost a 05 GTI with 53K, a 03 Silver TS and a 07 EOS. Most of the GTI's on CL are beat. I almost got a 1984 MK1 Caddy with 43K miles but it just didn't seem legit. It had a good body but had a GTI dash swap at sometime. We were off in price and he wouldn't budge.

Hey do you know where I can find that Black Mask for Turbo S bumper???
I got mine a few years ago at ECS tuning but haven't seen them in awhile now.

Well it should be good for a while now.
  • Water Pump
  • Timing Belt
  • Alternator
  • Radiator
  • Cam seal
More than I wanted to spend on preventive maintenance. But should be good for a few more years.

Still need to save money for Suspension refresh. :(

I had the alternator, timing belt, serpentine belt, and water pump all changed w/in the last 6 mos. on my car which is an identical twin to yours and I'm not aware that they had to remove the entire front body work to do it. (I did not witness any of the work or take pics like you did. However, it surprises me that they removed the entire front body and fender assembly.)

Hey Mutato: Did you ever find another car that you liked and was affordable? Still have the '03 Metallic Grey Turbo S? I still have mine. 56K actual miles...Best regards, Beetlebomb
