I have a Gen 1 Mini cooper 1600 2004, I havenít had her for long, the dealer said that it would have a full service prior to my collection once I had paid for it
but I noticed that it is hesitant when pulling away from a cold start, have you come across this problem and do you know what the problem is, the dealer said that this is what a mini does.
I could be a couple of things on your cooper, if you have access to a scan tool
get your O2 sensor checked out you only have one on the cooper, it will cause problems when cold and rough running poor idle etc and will not bring on the warning light.
The other could be a bad or scaled up water temp sensor these can also be checked easily
It could be something as silly as a dirty throttle body
