Mini-Cooper 07 potential TOAD?
We are looking for a small cheap TOAD (currently using my wife's 2017 Jeep Cherokee), and a 2007 Mini Cooper convertible with manual transmission has popped up for sale cheap locally. (going to hopefully go look at it tomorrow morning) Are there any words of warning for this particular model, overall it appears in good shape has about 150,000 miles, though the engine has been replaced with a low mileage engine (I understand the engines are a problem with this model year range) Clutch has also been recently replaced, I don't know much else about this one, though it will need a base plate, etc. to convert to TOAD duty, I did a DIY base plate installation on our Cherokee, so I suspect it will be similar, though I will look up the youtube videos etc. for this model.
