unfortunately there is no site yet for the mini car club philippines, the european car club section in tsikot.com is the closest thing to a dedicated forum for mini owners. :(



too bad! i was hoping you have one, how do you set up such an event like a "mini" EB?

astig man! before i go home, could you hook me up for some fresh minis like the ones in the pic?

well we usually meet up at petron blue wave at macapagal most sat nites. we usually number to around 8-15 :rolleyes:

to have a mini as a daily car you really need to spend on it first same as any used car, then it tends to be very reliable since parts of a mini are very durable though expensive, hence the initial cost of 350-400k. :goatee:

yun ang problema .. high maintenance na din kasi pag luma e.... magipon na lang ako para sa mas bago ... hehehe


you cannot really compare the new one with the classic, most mini owners feel the bmw mini is a mini in name only. it is terribly cute but it has lost the charm of the classic. no offense to bmw mini owners but whenever both are parked together people will look at the new and say nice car but then go straight to the old "classic" mini and have their picture taken, look at the detail, marvel at the tiny size and usually look for the owner to talk to him or her. Best thing about classic mini ownership is everybody's your friend, you will get smiles and thumbs up the entire day! great with girls too :evil:

Well... that's up to you, whether you want a classic or the new ones, ganun b high maintenance ba yung classic kaysa new models, but I think it's the same gaya ng isang kasama natin dito sa forum, mas astig kahit paano yung classic in some way but hindi naman pahuli yung bago syempre. :thumbsupsmiley:

sa itsura ng mini.. nakaka-misled minsan, kasi yung itsura nya. but the fact is ung binile ng bmw ang mini dito na lang lumabas ung mga "new models"

mini cooper classics...(899/998cc's)

modern classic ... last batch of production nito is yr 2000 if i am not mistaken... nag-dadagsaan ang mga units dito sa pinas coming from japan.(rovers, engine @ 1300.)

modern minis-- yan ung gawa na ng bmw..

hinde po ako expert sa mini mga sir..

sir boyong... ikaw ba si batman sa tsikot.. sorry o.t.

Nice Mini Pics pareng Boyong, may ganyan pala sa Pinas... our local version of the Mini London to Brighton run .Must be sight to see that many minis on the road. yeah i agree sa mga prices na natanungan ko, may 100 to 400, may 1 m nga daw according to one guy I talked to. a fully restored MK 1 complete with side sliding windows and dual tank.

not sure magkano na but open budget pag nag setup yun :boo: they imported a complete kit (subframe, driveshafts, etc) yun engine alam ko dito na lang sourced. estimate mga 300k on top of the cost of a mini :wacko:
