Anyone and everyone I enquire about a mini asks me if I know of any mini for sale.
This car is the most desired, rare, classic car in our country.
If I find one, I wont tell U. If I find two, I'll think about telling U.

One just got sold this morning from my friend's collection. Didn't ask him how much but would have cost an arm and a leg. I think he wanted 5.5 for it and it was almost restored.(not according to me but according to him it was mint)

The one in coimbatore that me and v1p3r looked at is priced way too high (2.5L). The car doesnt have proper papers and for all that I know it is might be a illegal. The car is not in any great shape too.

There was one chennai reg car (not sure about it though) for sale in salem. Belonged to a mill owner. Again car had some problems with the customs. The owner has another mini too. But that is not for sale.

I'm looking for one as well. Any Mini, not necessarily a Cooper. Decent mechanicals and chassis, don't really care for the engine bit. Needs to have clean papers, though.
