Back to the fold R55 Cooper S
 
Back in a mini!
Finally got a clubman cooper s. 2008 model, 51000 miles, full history with a folder full of receipts, chain and tensioner changed last year.
Had it about for 4 weeks now but been on holiday for two of them.

Things to do:
Lose the orange indicator bulbs
Fit a mfsw
Fit drl's
Change the dash led colour (not a fan of orange)

That's it for now for the run up to Xmas.
I love it, the wife hates it!!

Welcome back and very nice. Good find, especially, with the chain and tensioner being replaced.

You have got to love a Clubby :tl:

Health to drive

Have had a coolant leak for the past week steadily getting worse. So after a bit of googling and arm shoved down the back of a dark engine bay the diagnosis was a failed thermostat housing 🙄. Brother in law works for a parts supplier so new thermostat acquired and fitted today when I got up ( on night shift). Offending item below and I now have a leak free coolant system 😎https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...f938d35ffe.jpg

Looks much better swapping the bulbs and good result resolving the leak.

Bulbs were my first tweek on the Clubby, looks far better

Good job on curing the leak
