I decided to change my 08 Clubman S and I have just been underneath my nice new May 2012 Clubman S and noticed that whilst there is a dimpled heatshield on the offside rear above the exhaust there is not one on the nearside (the same side that the petrol filler is!). Is this correct? Comment has been made in the past as to why there is a rubber strip at the bottom of the drivers door but not on the passegger side. My 2012 model now has the strip on both doors! I also noticed that the puddle lights in the rear doors have not been fitted on the newer version, with the holes being blanked off and ask myself why? The rear lights now come on once you open the rear doors which is a useful upgrade as far as visibility by others is concerned.
Interesting, but I reckon MINI think owners wont be bending down that far in most cases to check it out.
Sounds like to guy fitting the nearside components on the line got caught short and when he came back your car had gone.
