Help cleaning up an STL?

I’m trying to import this STL of a Mini Cooper on Thingiverse into OpenSCAD without much success. I’ve run it through Netfabb’s cloud service, but that still isn’t fixing the problem.

I have a sweet sweet mashup I’d like to make…  so, do you think you could help out?  Much appreciated!

    I tried everything I could think of and failed too :(

    Why don’t you do what I did when I couldn’t get my chatterbox teeth to import into openscad?

    There are a bunch there… I guarantee one of them will import.
