The Carfax report is free from any negative activity and supports the cars original registration in Northern California on 5/10/15 when it had only 12 miles. The car retains its original paint and has no history of accidents or damage.
Having traveled only 8K miles and living the “easy life” in Northern California, the car is in absolutely beautiful condition. The striking, optional Eclipse gray metallic paint is free from imperfections that detract from the appearance of the car. The front and rear color coordinated bonnet and boot stripes add a touch of sportiness to the exterior and the interior is fitted with the upgraded and optional “Leather Lounge Championship Red” package, at a cost of $2,000.00.
This is a good example of the old adage “A photo is worth a thousand words.” With this MINI, the photographs accurately show the condition of this one owner MINI JCW and we encourage a close review of the exterior, interior, engine, and undercarriage photos.
A close, critical inspection of the exterior reveals virtually none of the usual chips and nicks on the front of the car, excellent paint and trim and a very attractive JCW convertible. The MINI’s owner reports no history of accidents or damage and our paint meter readings support the cars original factory paint. Any minor imperfections are confined to normal use, minor dings but the car remains free from any significant damage and most casual observers do not notice the slight imperfections.
The MINI JCW is fitted with Black Sport alloy wheels wrapped with Conti Sport Contact tires. Three of the rims are free from damage with the front left showing very minor curbing that has been touched up in black. The glass is all original with side and rear glass free from any imperfections. The windshield has a repaired star on the lower part of the driver’s side windshield.
The lovely factory upgraded/optional leather interior is in beautiful condition with no wear on the bolsters and reflects the extremely low mileage and use by its medical professional owner / driver. The carpets, mats and other interior items (dash, mats, panels, etc.) are equally as good and the car has never been smoked in. The trunk area is immaculate showing hardly any signs of use and certainly no indication of heavy items or loads being transported. The factory cargo net is still in the factory bag and the wind deflector is mounted on the car.
The engine compartment is exceptionally clean and reflects the care that the car has received by the dealer since it was new. The underside of the MINI (refer to photos) is also “California” clean with absolutely no signs of rust, oil or damage and appears “as new.” An inspection of the undercarriage makes it very apparent that this MINI has never seen rain. .
As expected for an exceptionally well maintained, late model MINI, the MINI JCW runs and drives as new. The car was maintained by the BMW/ MINI dealer under warranty and, with only 8K miles, frankly, only required the regular oil service. The car has not been modified in any way and has always been garage kept when not in use.
For the individual who is interested in a very low mileage, nicely optioned, California MINI JCW, it would be difficult to find a better example…this car simply will not disappoint!

MINI ROAD TEST TESTIMONIALS
From Road & Track:
Hot hatchbacks, we’re told, are supposed to be a little
raucous, edgy and brash in the name of cheap speed. The 2015 Mini John Cooper Works Hardtop is definitely hot—it’s the quickest, most powerful car Mini has ever built
From Auto Express:
“It comes as little surprise, but mating a manual gearbox to such an excitable and energetic hot hatch immediately makes the JCW a more appealing proposition.”
