    Depends on the car condition. Not all recond cars are good. At the same time, there are also some good recon cars too.

    Have you already tried purchasing recon cars? how was it... i'm just wonderin' if such re-conditoned Mini parts will still give great performance...or i'll just buy brand new instead...

    I have used 3 recond cars before. Currently still using one recond car. So far I didn't face any major problems:) In fact, you can get some good specs from recon cars.

    it's a great car. think about it, you can get a variety of sports cars for that price or entry priced recon luxury cars near that price if not just a bit more.
