Smile How far to restore

Ordered ‘05 Cooper S in Feb. ‘04, del’d 8/04. Convertible w/JCW. Originally aNY car, now So. Cal. No rust, no needs a little work at seams. The interior tan leather is splitting at seams. Approaching 60k miles, all easy, I am 75 yrs. old. How far do folks go to update a daily driver? I will replace leather as needed, what about worn cruise control buttons, etc. Is it reasonable to budget $5,000.? Thank You for any advice.

Really it's up to you. If you love the car and can't stand to part with it, then I say spend what it takes to make it as nice as you wan't it. Just don't expect a huge ROI if you go to sell after you have fixed it up.
