I find with Minis that the law of diminishing returns applies more than other cars. You can spend 10 grand on an MED engine and down the Dronfield bypass, a 320d is going to hand you your arse on a silver platter. Just forget it.
So right, my sons got a 320d, his mates gat a 320d......in some ways these are the Mini/ Escort of today. £7k gets you, 180 bhp, rear wheel drive, 40Mpg, rear wheel drive, ..........maybe in 35 years they will be arguing over the originality of a BMW 320D Wiper motor :lol: :lol:

Minworld advertised their finished Clubman Estate project car for a year starting at about £17-18k and slowly reduced it to about £14k with no serious takers and a couple of scammers, so it eventually went to auction at Historics. Apparently there were three bidders who quickly passed the reduced reserve and kept going to £18,200, roughly the asking price they had been after a year earlier in the classified ads.
Plus buyers commission presumably...
