Temperature related Dent on Roof of Countryman
We have had a new MINI Countryman for about 3 weeks. It has the metalic black roof with the full sunglass roof in the middle.
After a handwash on last Saturday, we noticed there is a dent at the middle of the very front roof, between password and driver position, above the rear view mirror mouting position.
There is no damge of paint around the dent. We don't belive the dent is caused by any external forces due to the position and shape of it.
It is more looks like the dent is caused by metal shriking from the back of dent.
After searching around on the internet we found the following very useful links on this forum,
(I can't post the link due to not enough post number. Please search "mini roof dent heat related" in google, it should come out at the top one.)
I think we got the famous Temperature Related Dent Issue with black roof. Even they suggested the fix has been in place since 2003 for the mini coopers, as Countryman is a relative new model,
It seems the issue is coming back on this new model.
I have emailed the Mini Customer Service.
Will update again once I get a reply.
