are still the same.

LoL

The Engine EXPLOSION followed by a transmission Meltdown put a Downer on the whole MINI thing for me.

Found a $2500 1990 - Miata i've pooring money into instead
Nothing turns in like a MINI but you can do power slides with a FWD

- I still have a Cylinder head in LA that has been there for over a year now - be down that way this month for work - maybe i'll put it up for sale out there ?

Unhappy

I was raining out - So I wasn't driving that fast... dropped a valves things went south from there...
Piston - Connecting rod - Valve
Rod breaks - pokes a Little Hole out the front and back of the block
A *bit* of oil splashes out onto the Header and a Tiny little fires starts on the PS pump / Starter / engine wiring harness = LIMP Mode ...

Tow it home in a buddies trailer - Hum and Haw about what to do - 5 years old + 120Km = Out of Warrantee

I finally decide to talk to the Dealer - tell the guy my sad story and he goes to Bat for me with MINI Canada !
bring the car in he says we'll have a look, 2 weeks later - Free Engine - You just pay to install it !

It needed a lot of little parts and labor, $7600 and 7 weeks later I got my car back

I take for a trip to the folks place
Air bag light is on
Check engine light
I was stuck in gear on the high way once and it makes a *funny* noise when you let the clutch out in neutral ???

I take it back to the dealer 14 days after getting it back.
Figuring If I spent 7K they could have added another G and *Fixed everything*

No no they tell me - Blown Engine - Fix engine !
Check Engine light - replace the ECU 2k
Air Bag light - new passenger side harness - $365
*funny* noise - give us a $grand and well have a look !
AYOYFM !!

I give em 165$ and leave... discouraged I let the tags lapse and drive it around the block once a week to keep it in shape.
In December I sell it and 5th disappears on the way back to Montreal...

I make arrangements for a Mechanic friend to look at the car and swap the tranny.
He takes the plug out to drain the oil - What OIL !

The ^&*^*&#&@&*#^$&@#^*&^$^%#@$&^%@#^ Didn't put oil back the tranny - No wonder it was making a weird noise....

I considered taking them to Small claims court but the car is sold, it was over 3 months, its living over 100 miles away ....
Hello Miata !
