Selling my 2007 Mini Cooper S JCW. This is not your average Mini Cooper. It runs 19 lbs of boost stock compared the the usual 12 with these cars, allowing it to make over 200 horsepower and comes fitted with a 6 speed manual transmission and a 50% mechanical limited slip differential.

Price: $5990
Mileage: 134,000

This car is loaded with all of the good options and none of the bad options. This includes full leather sport interior, factory navigation, factory high-option sound system, factory shift lights, upgraded OEM floor mats, aluminum dash trim, bi-xenon headlights, headlight washers, premium package, multifunction steering wheel, automatic climate control, and heated seats. Although it has the premium package, this car was custom ordered without the dual-pane moonroof, so it has a couple of inches of extra headroom and there is nothing to break or leak up there. It also saves a bunch of weight from the roof, making this car perform better.

For upgrades, the car has a brand new OEM shift knob purchased from the dealership along with a new OEM 606 diverter valve. This is the upgraded version of the part that should never leak or go bad. Other upgrades include factory option JCW R111 Black Star Bullet wheels with pretty new expensive run-flat tires. It also has an upgraded CravenSpeed oil dipstick, which costs about $80. That makes this car a pretty stock, unmolested JCW. It also has recently replaced Bilstein shocks and the cooling system has also already been addressed.

Has new NGK laser platinum spark plugs and recently received new OEM coil packs and a Valve Cleaning.

As far as condition, this car is excellent besides some normal small rock chips on the front bumper and 2 small dents near the rear left in the roof. It has only one small door ding and the clear coat is in excellent shape. This car has been garaged for its whole life and it shows. It doesn't have loose trim like most of the cars I looked at before buying this one and has no rattles in the door panels or interior.

Negatives:
Back hatch handle doesn't work(still opens with remote fine)
Headlights lenses need restoration
Shifter has a little bit of side-to-side play

I detail and clean the car with mostly Chemical Guys Products and it currently has JetSeal on the paint.

The only reason I am selling this is I have made a deposit on another car and don't have garage space for both cars. I don't want to park one outside, so one has to go. My phone number is 417-234-1372. Text is best to start out because I get a ton of scam calls for some reason. Weird area code is because I never changed it after moving. This is an AZ car, though.

I purchased this car in August of 2016 to serve as a daily driver/second car, but no longer need a second car.

- 2004 BMW 325xi
- WBAEU33424PF61825
- 192xxx Miles
- Cold weather package, Navigation
- Owned 7 Months
- Car location: Buckeye Arizona (Suburb of Phoenix)
- Willing to ship? No
- Asking price: $3900

2004 325xi in JapanRot/Electric Red with a Black interior. It has heated seats, Navigation(Missing the map disc), and the 5 speed manual transmission.

It has wheels off of an e90, which are 8.5 inches wide along with the 225 width run-flats that would have came on that e90. This setup will fit 255's no problem.

Positives:
-Upgraded e90 wheels
-Navigation
-Heated seats
-New Bilstein front struts and mounts
-New Genuine BMW front axles
-5 Speed
-Angel eyes
-No CELs
-Aux Input
-Airbag recalls done(Takata Recall)
-All wheel drive

Negatives
-Remote needs new battery.
-Angel eyes trigger wire not connected.
-Small piece of drivers seat splitting
-Headlights are fogged($40 for new plastics)
-Drivers mirror clear coat bubbling/peeling
-Touch up paint on roof
-Console lid hinge broken(New console included)
-Needs new front lower control arm bushings installed(2 sets included)
-Trunk dent
-Right rear door trim has a crack(Friend stepped on it while I was replacing the window regulator)
-Front tire wear on edges

Upon purchasing the car, I bought and installed refurbished genuine BMW front axles because the boots on the originals were beginning to split. That was about 4,000 Miles ago. At the same time, I replaced the front struts with Bilstein B4's and replaced the right rear window regulator. The Navigation LCD display has recently been replaced with a genuine part and the BMW auxiliary input kit was installed with bluetooth functionality. Since then, it hasn't needed anything and has driven great.

It currently needs a front lower control arm bushing. When it started showing wear on one of the front tires, I took the car to BMW and that is what they said it needed.
I purchased the new bushings and the car has sat for the past ~month. It is still totally drivable for now, but wears the outer edge of the right front tire under braking. Two sets of bushings will be included with the car along with other miscellaneous items such as an extra console, new console leather, Mann oil filter, extra interior clips, extra marker lights, and extra strut tower reinforcement plates. It already has plates installed. I accidentally bought extras.

As for maintenance, car-fax shows that this car has been serviced at Dealerships for most of its life. The car is rust-free, which seems to be hard to find in an xi. It was originally sold in New York, but left the North-East when it was less than a year old, which would seem to explain why it is so clean.

Cosmetically, it has some Arizona issues. The headlights are fogged from the sun, but just need the plastic covers replaced ~$40. Also, the red plastic on the driver's mirror needs to be repainted as the clear coat is peeling. It could use a new shift knob. There is a dent in the trunk. Lastly, the silver trim on the right rear door is cracked. It was stepped on while I replaced the window regulator.

This car is mechanically solid and very reliable. I will be sad to see it go and I think it is priced fairly for what it needs.

I had it at the driver's school in 2016 and it did better than I thought it would.

So that's all I can think of. This listing makes it sound like a POS, but the car really is solid, and still a blast to drive. I just wanted to comprehensively list all the issues/quirks. It's perfectly livable as is, and it's a car that could still make the right buyer very happy.

Didn't get many photos, but figured I would throw them up here anyway.

Hello. Anyone here have a paint booth or know anyone who does and would be willing to rent it out for a day?
We have our own guns and stuff. Just need a booth space for a day to paint my car because previous arrangements fell through.

You can either respond here or PM with a price and where you are located.

Thanks!

So, it has been a while since I have been to an event, but that is because my car has been apart for paint and still is, unfortunately.

Onto the topic... I am looking into aftermarket seats because while my cloth seats hold me in alright, I rode in an RX7 in Tuscon with sparco evos and it sold me on aftermarket seats.
I know many people here run aftermarket seats and many have had f-bodys in the past or currently.
I have a 1999 firebird I will be putting them in and I am 6'1".

Any info from you that run aftermarket seats on how to get them lower or what brackets you like to run would be appreciated.

I am not set on the seat yet, so feel free to make recommendations on good fixed back seats.
I am looking to spend under $400 per seat.

Goals: Put an aftermarket seat (probably a Corbeau FX1) in a 1999 Firebird Formula at or lower than the stock seat height. Don't care about it being adjustable.

Thanks!

P.S. Mods, if this is in the wrong place, feel free to remove or delete it.
