Hey guys. I just purchased my 2004 mini cooper S 2 weeks ago. I have looked for quite a while and found a whole heap of lemon minis that just didnt meet the bill. i was looking between 2003-2007 (i do prefer the pre 2007 look however) ... anyway, i do understand the idea of the code name for the mini builds such as r50 for mini cooper and r53 for a mini cooper S. however, im stumped when i took a closer examination under the hood of my mini. Its a cooper S, however under the hood on the build plate it says its a r50? i thought mini cooper S's were always labeled r53?? so now im terrified i either bought a fake/chop shop car ... or, im wrong and over reacting. i would love your oppinions guys? help please haha.
