Oh sorry for the delay guys...I was outa cmb!

Exellent idea Sandeepa....go for a mini!

Disk brake conversion is very easy.Now you can buy with subframe at a very low cost.

Disk conversion will take a complete day.(@ normal SL workman speed)

Ajith Hemachandra is the Ideal man for the job.

But he is outa cmb, gone racing N'Eliya wil be bak after Sinhala Avurudu.

Rohith is not handling mechanical conversions but he is the ideal man for the paint n tinkering.

But Sandeepa pal,PS conversion is not recomended as it gives lots of problems after fixing.

I removed the rover aproved kit from my Cooper S, sold to Wijeyananda of Grandpass.But dont buy it!!

Need further help??

Oh no !! a 1275SPi with 8.8Km/l is a nightmare...but its not a big problem I guess...Im only familiar with tuners north of colombo!

Try Ajith of Roadstar Motorworks Seeduwa 0777383526.He is the best Tuner i ever know.Specialists in SPi and Tpi.

Bro Milinda are u asking about a Cooper or a Rover Mini??

Must clarify a few things...Not every Mini minor is a Cooper Mini...

Cooper Minis are very rare and expensive .Coopers have lots of John Cooper modifications added on production to engine and gearbox,suspension ,even to body panenls and cosmetics.My Cooper S ,I value at 1.2+ ...I have a friend values his at 1.5+.

Frankly only a handful of authentic Coopers are in SL. Rest are just Rover Minis and late Mk4 Rovers .

A clubman at a tag of 4 is a reasonable buy but all depends on body condition,interior,mechanical and regd and revenue licence updating.In my opinion a clubman with many extras including front disks alloys , ac and in perfect body trim and interior with good ICE is worth 4.

but must frankly tell you that youll run into some degree of trouble selling a clubman as clubmans are not every mini enthusiasts favourite mini.some dislike clubmans for no reason,maybe the high engine capacity or the odd looking front.

Whatever the case may be dont be in a hurry to grab a mini...go for a good buy ..play a waiting role ,i recomend a post 1983 Mini for you...and finally is it a 1250cc or a 1275cc?? please check on this with the owner.

Cheers!!

Hey u herd abt mr rohiths MINI project the one hes extending the frame to fix a vtec engine ..O BOY we can see one mini racer racing against the suabarus,evos and the other cars over 2000cc

Machan...Rohit gave up the idea of racing MINI Vtecs due many reasons including existing local racing regulations.Infact he sold the car to another friend but continues with the project at his workshop but his friend will not be racing it,he is just a performance enthusiast.The front section is extended to accomodate the engine and awaiting loads of spares from UK ...so the project is halted now.

We checked two MINI Vtecs in UK and the performances were absolutely amazing.Test drove against a race prepared EVO5 and you know the results.At dyno one mini showed 165bhp.But its pity that our regulations prevent MINI Vtecs race against supercars.

Hi,

I checked out a few mini's during the last few days. One was a 1275 Mini and he was asking 5.75 for it. It had a pretty good body condition, but the brakes and the AC were not working. I am new to Mini's and was wondering if someonw could help me out.

First is the price all right?

And are there any concerns over the 1275 engine? How is it on fuel? Any idea on consumption?

Cheers,

S.

Miniace my man,

I am still a few years away from setteling down for good in SL, but when I do, I hope you are still in the forum and you could help me get my hands on my own little Cooper S, always always wanted one :D

Yet to actually see a Cooper S running in SL, is your Cooper S an EFI version ? what do you think of the last of the Mini Coopers Miniace ? the EFI versions, some people have a negative opinion of them, say they are not proper mini's, thesedays I am considering getting a low milleage 98 99 Cooper (not a Cooper S),

Also a lot of Mini's I encountered had more cataloy than metal (which is what prevented me from getting one when I was there) can you get proper Mini pannels in SL for repair ? and how do you perform body repairs on a mini ?

Regards,

The Don
