Probably the only people with a spare cassette are the factory

In the meantime my 2002 MCS went through 2 replacement cassettes in 3 years and next MCS went through one in 3 years so on the strength of that improvemnt and my love of open air motoring my R56 naturally has the sunroof option but I don't think it will last the 3 years of ownership planned!

I do give my sunroofs a lot of use open everyday it's dry and venting on the days it may be wet

Too many freaks not enough circuses
Tell a man that there are 400 billion stars and he'll believe you.
Tell him a bench has wet paint and he has to touch it.

My sunroof rattles quite a lot. Still to find the source of the rattle - as it's a new car for me I just tend to put my foot down and forget about it. If this novelty wears off I'll sort it out!

My R56 appears to have this rattle and the dealers says sunroofs are on back order till the middle of July.

I also have a bespoke sunroof graphic which I would lose when it gets replaced.

R56 JCW Cooper S Auto. Laser Blue, Black Roof, R105's, Sat Nav.... the list goes on.
R53 JCW Cooper S Auto. Chilli Red, R113's.
