I am sadly selling my beloved mini. many people tell me I'm going to regret this decision but I need a bigger car for work. nbsp;I drive my mini every day and it brings me so much joy. and brings smiles to many faces as you cruise past.
Having access to so many parts from the UK before I imported my mini. I have been able to install some great upgrades that will not be available here in Australia or will be simply to expensive.
It cost my around $20 to fill the tank and lasts me around a week. its incredibly economic!
There were only 1000 Sidewalks produced making them a limited edition. The interior is all original trim with the Red Seat Belts. and Blue and Red Tartan Print Seats.
I do not want to paint any illusions here. this is not a concourse car. its driven. used and loved. it has small dents and scratches but the oil is regularly changed. air filters cleaned. nbsp;parts checked and replaced with upgraded parts before they have become anywhere near being worn out. with a little work this car will keep giving and going for many years to come.
