I am looking to invest in a cheap car and resell it to fund another hobby of mine. It should be a fun project for my dad and I over the summer too. I have done a decent amount of work to my own Mini and feel I could tackle something pretty hard like a trans.
I found a great deal on a 05' base cooper with automatic transmission that is slipping. I know I can fix it the only thing I can't find is the parts to do so
Any suggestions? Does anybody know where I can get my hands on a master rebuild kit?
Cheers to anybody that knows Also any other advice is much appreciated

The trans slips, sounds like an expensive can or worms, the transmissions are the cvt type and are crap.
