I'm considering purchase of a used Mini (2002 or later). But am concerned about service, especially warranty service, in Birmingham, since we don't have a dealer. Based on my quick wandering through this forum, and the listings in the used car classifieds, there are a number of Mini owners in the area. Where does one get one fixed if it breaks?? Also, should I avoid the 2002/first year model with the idea of avoiding design problems, bugs, etc. typical of a first run? Any other quick observations to offer before I start pouring through this forum for sage advice?
