Picking up first MINI on Saturday!

Hello everyone,

Have been trawling through the forums for the past few days, as I'm picking up my very first MINI on Saturday!

It's an 07-plated, R56 Mini Cooper 1.4 (120 bhp) Petrol in Red, but with Matt Black wrap. It has done 74k miles on the clock.

Does anyone have any specific things/guidance to look out for before handing over my 5k?

I've heard about the death rattle and will be sure to check, the car has just passed an MOT and just been serviced - so seems a-ok!

After driving a same engine Clubman last week at my local MINI dealer, to say I'm very excited to get my hands on my own MINI would be an understatement!!

I'm no expert but I think it's only the Cooper S that has the timing chain issue/death rattle
