I reckon you could externally strip my 998 Cooper and get about £2k from ebay without opening the doors
Unfortunately, these prices for parts, make nicking an old mini to break it, even more attractive....

It is so amazing, it does look suspicious, as others have said, advertise one for £100, while advertising another on another account for a slightly less inflated £50......seems to be a possible reality...

I'm not for 1 second suggesting that they are worth that, but they are one of those bits that people seem to go F@&%ing silly over.

Never did understand why.
If I ever got excited enough to purchase 2 NOS LINREAD DOOR LIGHT SWITCHES for that amount I hope I would know it was time to give up on classic Minis as an interest or seek help.....

Not sure if of interest but I followed a useful link on this forum and bought some of these:

https://www.classicminispares.co.nz/sto ... tch-mk-1-2

They are not original but I think similar. Have a couple of spares that I won’t use. Cost me £20 each but open to offers if they are useful to anyone?

Cheers, Mike

I still have half a dozen of the NOS Intermotor switches that I bought on eBay a year or so ago, if anyone needs them. Other than not being stamped ‘Linread’ they seem identical to the OEM part.
