Exclamation Cold Start Noise details Poll

Hi all,
I thought I would take the liberty of starting a new thread for the 'Cold Start Noise' issue.

It should only have brief and precise details dates and figures, regarding your car and the noise issue.

Please no chat or banter, (we have two other threads for this) The original Cold Start Noise thread, I feel is now just going around in circles, with people having to argue points that have previously been exhausted, But not all people want to read nearly 80 pages of chat and worry etc. (although maybe they should)

Some of the criteria that has been put forward already, are as follows:-

1. Does your car suffer from the cold start rattle? Y/N

2. Model/Year of Manufacture?

3. Has your car been back to Mini for any remedial work? Y/N

4. What work was carried out? How many times?

5. If remedial work has been carried out.....has the cold start rattle returned?

6. Are you willing to join and go forward with a group action plan in the future? Y/N


REMEMBER

This thread will have to strictly comply with this information, without posters straying off topic.....that way we can easily compile a true list of those experiencing the problem.

Post other thoughts and chat here:-
http://www.mini2.com/forum/2nd-gen-f...omplaints.html

But.. If you feel some other criteria should be included feel free to comment!
If you haven't had the noise your details are just as important!

Group action would involve aproaching BMW as a concerned owners petition.
Obviously everybody who says 'yes' to an action plan, will be invited to examine more detail on this startegy, as well as share ideas and also opt out if necessary.
