06' Cooper S

I know a lot of the first gen Coopers have some issues, especially with the power steering, but are they just as common in the 2006 year as the 2002?

Also, sorry if you guys see a lot of threads like this.

As you would expect alot of the initial teething problems were sorted out or 'improved' after the mid 2004 facelift.
