Locating service history?

Hi all,
I'm sure its been covered before so please excuse me.
I'm in the process of repairing my first Cat d Mini S D (reg BV58VTY).
Can anyone please inform me of the best way to locate the service history of this lovely car? Does BMW have a central register?
How can i get the options list for this car?

P.S. I am really looking forward to getting this car on the road!

Thank you in advance.

You can get the service history if its been looked after all its life by a BMW MINI dealer, if the previous owner used a Jack Jones back street place then I expect theres nothing?

Has the service log book been stamped up at every service? thats another way you can tell when it was done, the basic services, but not all the repairs its had too, which a MINI dealer could tell you.

I think the service history can be read from the key by any dealer..
Also any dealer can give you the options. Mine sent me them by email when I inquired.

Another way to get (most of) them is to use this link ->
