In 2011 I purchased a 2005 Mini Cooper S convertible. It now has 120k miles.
I am trying to decide if I want to do more repairs on the vehicle, or park it in the garage and sell it next year when I get the title paid off. Will have Paid $13k for purchase. I have already had to pay for a rebuilt transmission, new supercharger and pulley, front brakes, costing more then +$8000 along with Motor, Windshield Wiper $852.43 and Motor, Cooling Fan - stage one low speed of fan was not working $680.72
NOW the car needs the following
REAR BRAKES approximately $600
THIRD set of run flat tires approximately $1000-$1200
AND it has a Gasket, Oil Pan leaking oil $610
Crank Sensor O-ring leaking oil $602
Power steering hoses starting to leak $600
Passenger side engine mount leaking fluid $275
Upper strut mounts are worn/cracking and will cause clunking noise over bumps $900 AND the convertible top will need new cables and seals by next summer $800
Should I spend any more money on this car or park it and trade it in next year on something different. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
