WTT '09 Cooper S for manual trans E90

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
I really need a bigger car, so I'm looking to trade my '09 R56 MINI towards a E90 with a manual or automatic trans. The E90 must be in great shape, include heated seats and interesting color combinations are preferred. I spec'ed my MINI to include several options: heated leather seats, sunroof, premium sound, Bluetooth, I-Pod interface, Cold Weather package, Premium package, Chrome Line interior, Oak trim, Dark headliner, LSD, center console, Xenon lights, Multi-function steering wheel. I've since added: a full clear bra, 3M tint all around, Akebono ceramic pads, 16" Rial wheels and Michelin Primacy tires (original wheels/tires available). It has 31K miles(highway - really!) and is in very good shape. Over-maintained with 3 extra oil/filter changes. It's British Racing Green with a White top and Tan interior.

There are so few manual trans E90's that I'm willing to consider a paddle shift automatic.

Very nice mini. Actually wasn't aware an LSD was offered (and not on E90s? )

You should know that it's pretty easy and relatively inexpensive (~$250) to add paddles to a non-paddle sport-pkg AT, so don't let that limit you.

Thanks - After ordering it to my specs, I'll be sorry to see it go.

Since it was $500, LSD was not a very popular option but pretty useful when you have any power at all with a front wheel driver. After '09, MINI switched from the traditional mechanical LSD to the electronic version that I don't care for. Instead of redirecting power to the wheel with available traction, it merely applies the brake to the faster spinning wheel. It sort of works, but it's not very elegant.

Thanks for the tip on the paddle shifters - hopefully, I be able to find a car soon.
