Mini

Rating
The Mini is without doubt a motoring milestone and has had many volumes dedicated to its design, history and development but this is the only book to examine the tricky task of buying one used. Iconic and innovative it may have been but this quintessentially British car was not without its defects, many of which could turn the Mini experience into an expensive and tiresome disaster. This guide takes the potential purchaser through a short initial examination to weed out the obviously defective followed by a more comprehensive step-by-step look at the body and mechanical parts, where the clear, jargon free text accompanied by over 100 photographs sheds light on even the darkest corners of the Mini's construction. A unique points marking system ensures that nothing is overlooked and an accurate final picture of the car's condition can be viewed in relation to the asking price.

About the Author

With a Mini being a permanent feature in the family for over 20 years, not to mention the dozens that passed through the doors of his garage during that time, the author has experienced the highs and lows of owning, repairing and restoring these iconic little cars. A move away from the motor trade and in to classic car and motorcycle journalism has allowed him to put some of that experience on to paper in magazine articles and two previous books.
