Default FS: 2008 MCS in NC

2008 MINI Cooper S
27,091 miles
$19,500

Factory Specs:
Laser Blue/Laser Blue
Black Checkered Cloth
6-Speed Manual
Limited Slip Differential
Anthracite Headliner
Multi-Function Steering Wheel
Bluetooth & USB/iPod Adapter
Xenon Headlights
White Turn Signals
Front & Rear Fog Lights
Carpet Floor Mats

Mods:
JCW Front Anti-Sway Bar
H-Sport 19mm Rear Anti-Sway Bar
Grassroots Garage Stainless Brake Lines
Xpel 3M Clear Bra, Full Kit

The Bad:
One small "star" in the windshield.
The factory jack collapsed on me while rotating the tires as I was just raising up the rear passenger side. It left two small cuts in the side skirt and a small dent in the quarter panel. It's minor and only noticeable if pointed out.
Due to how low the car was it has a few very minor scrapes on the oil pan. Nothing has left dents or scraped enough to cause any damage and there are pictures in my thread of the scraping. The exhaust was swapped for a newer factory one with everything in tact.
That's it.

Maintenance:
All maintenance is up to date.
Cold Start Rattle (Timing Chain) was just taken care of last week.
Window reprogramming was done after the bulletin came out for it a few months ago.
Has had 3 oil changes done already, roughly every 8k miles.
