Good evening Ms Nuzki,

Do you own a mini ? This my favorite car. Reminds me of that famous movie Italian Job starring Charlize Theron. I enjoyed that chase scene whrein alll the minis were ready to steal the gold.

I have long dreamed of having one, whether it is the vintage mini cooper or even the modern one. Dream on...

Hi, before about the mini, im not a mz, im mr., mali yung icon dito sa mtc gender icon i dont know why?...Now yung question mo kung my mini coop ako, eh wala pero like you've have said you have watch Italian Job, actually its a remake movie, that's the time I started to like the Mini Cooper cars(kaya cars kasi marami sila mula sa una hanggang sa latest mini, you should research about the mini). I remember my former classmate back in college she have had a mini cooper, I think it's a '85 model mini.But sad thing, it does'nt run maybe because there's wrong with the engine, kaya ko rin nasabi naaalala ko po nung pumunta kami sa house nila together with my other classmate,mukhang ok naman yung body ng mini at maalikabok sya dahil hindi nga nagagamit.At pamana sa kanya yun ng father nya. Ikaw pwedeng you can share stories about mini coop.

Thanx for the reply
Nutzki

Hi, thanx for the post, where are you working anyway.actually merong binebenta sa marikina riverbanks, beside marikina hotel sa barangka, meron dun '85 model na mini (red) 385K ata yung selling price but before sabi ng friend ko dito sa office yung bumili nun mura lang pagkabili at nirestore lang kaya medyo mataas na yung pagbenta nya dun sa showroom dun sa marikina.

I own one :thumbsupsmiley: for me its the only practical true "classic" car. The mini has retained its body styling for over 40years with only minor changes. It is a classic car in every sense but you can actually use one for every day in manila traffic, with aircon, I do. There are a lot of enthusiasts who are crazy over this small lovable car. We usually meet up at petron blue wave at macapagal ave near MOA most sat nights. Drop by if you want to see a bunch of minis hanging around. :upside:

PM me I know someone selling a brand new 07 mini cooper, blue color. :thumbsupsmiley:

A used classic mini ranges from 250 to 400k depending on the condition. I usually recommend buying something in the 350k to 400k as even buying a mini at 150k you will end up at around 350k up when you finish fixing it up. :upside:

A used BMW mini ranges for 1.3m to 1.8m depending on model. New ones are 2M up <_<

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. :(

Hello, same here gusto ko rin sana, I dont have also a budget but I think you can.If you can save a big buck for that car why not?...But like boyong said, classic minis are ok when you buy mini coop car, it only ranges from 300-400K.Maybe that suitable for you, unlike the new ones, they are very nice... as in very nice, but expensive.If you're practical you can buy one of those classic mini. :thumbsupsmiley:
