Thousands in repairs? Looked like an r56 at first glance. Nice upgrades.

I had the original clutch replaced at 207,500 miles as well as the electric power steering pump. One headlight bulb ($225), two serpentine belts and I don't know how many sets of tires. At 100,000 miles I put drilled and slotted rotors and EBC brakes even though I had half pad life left. I LOVE this car.

Cool to see a mini having done such good road tripping. Was Newfoundland the 1 Canadian province you didn't hit? Also, any new places you've hit since this post or maitenance worth noting?

Hi Canada Question / Follow Up: Here is an update on my 2004 Mini Cooper S
As of July 1, 2017 I have 277,845 miles on the odometer. The engine has never had the head off, so all internals are original. Valve cover gasket only replaced once 5,000 miles ago along with a few other o-rings and seals. Still on the second supercharger and clutch but I think I will need a clutch this year. I also have to replace the original headliner soon too. The Mini has not been to Newfoundland yet but I don't have any plans to go yet. We also have a 2014 Forester with 120,255 miles and a 2013 Mercedes Sprinter passenger van with 109,987 miles, so I haven't driven the mini much since 2013. Averaged about 1000 miles each year.
