I have a 2007 Mini Cooper that needs a new engine. Car has 126k miles...great body and interior. Is it worth replacing engine or should I sell as a parts car?

the R50 engine has the timing chain...the R52 has a timing belt...Cooper S has the R52...which engine are you servicing?

even after timing belt destruction...if the pistons have not been touched a "head job" with new valve seals and valves should be performed...with your new timing belt (if R52)....save the engine~!

Those CVT automatics are jerky sometimes, but if you work with them they are alright...I find myself using the "shift0matic" often enough~

Brian Wilson is totin' 00 as his Dodger uniform number~

Get a replacement motor if you haven't a super-duper HIgh-Class outfit like Berkeley Motor Works~ (if in the Bay Area)~

Judge...I think you're REALLY talking waaaay over Mary's head in terms of the engine specs. Take it down a notch, maybe and put it into layman's terms for her. I highly doubt she understands the difference between an R50 and R52 engine. Also, I would go under the assumption that she (and other people who post) are not in the Bay Area or the State of California. A lot of us (like me) live on the opposite coast...or somewhere in between :) ------> Have a good day, mi amigo!
