    The time has come to put my 2008 Mini Cooper S up for sale. The car is built for Autocross in STX class and is a full, competitive build. With this car I have claimed several national trophies and I'm sure that with a talented enough driver, would be a strong force for a national championship. The car has been in my family since it was nearly new, my father bought it when it had only 1,600 miles.
    I've decided to sell it due to the fact that I don't have enough time to use it for its purpose anymore and I've been really jonesing to get back into my old E36.
    The car is strong and fast and will put a smile on your face.
    Mileage is currently 84,xxx and will increase slightly as it is my daily driver.
    Maintenance has been almost religious with oil changes every 4,000 miles with Schaeffer's 5W-40 oil and OEM Mini oil filters.
    The complete mod list can be found here:

    The only cons include:
    -Having been a heavily-used autocross car it is not without minor scuffs and scratches, but nothing that takes away from the car as a whole.
    -The temp. gauge currently is not working and I have not had the time to fix it
    -The A/C currently doesn't work but I plan to have it fixed by the time of sale
    -The trunk will not open with the button on the hatch as it has shorted out so you have to use the key to open it
    -It will need new tires soon-ish
    -Minor curb marks on the street wheels

    ***The Sparco Seat will NOT come with the car, unless the buyer pays extra for it***

    I can de-sticker the car at the buyer’s request

    I will provide more pics at requestmappelbaum-5.jpgmappelbaum-6.jpgIMG_1880.JPGIMG_1983.jpgIMG_2071.jpg

    Asking price is $10,000 obo or trades for a good condition BMW, not really looking for any model specifically.

    Oh shoot, I didn't realize that I hadn't put the price in the ad. I'm asking $10,000 with all the assorted goodies that I have to go with it, including race wheels and tires, autocross-only brake pads, and assorted odds and ends.

    Here are some interior pics, I haven't had a chance to get it fully cleaned up yet unfortunately with my work schedule.

    My understanding is that he's not selling anymore.

    Also, R56 Cooper S was excluded from STX starting 2019.
