Hi everyone got my Mini Cooper s clubman delivered on Monday and I love driving it but last nyt my engine management light come on 😞 still running fine thou. I called the mini dealership and they have assured me that aslong as the light stays amber and still runs fine then it's ok to drive, but wen and if the light turns red or the car runs bad then I have to stop driving. It's abit gutting as I haven't even had the car a week!

New-to-Me 2013 Cooper S

Picked up my chili pepper red 2013 Mini Cooper S with only 2350 miles on it. I had to drive to Indianapolis to get it so I can't post any pics yet. I'll do it when I get home. Driving through the mountains of east KY, southwest VA and then western NC to get home. FUN!!

Smile 2014 s

I just picked up my Iced Chocolate Cooper S. A lot of fun to drive. A very good ride for such a small car. I now have a lot of extra room in my garage.

I bought a low mileage mint condition late 2013 Iced Chocolate Cooper S Highgate Convertible this week. It was an impulse buy as I was about to order a new city car (Renault Twingo), but decided I needed something with a fun factor as I have been very ill for a few years, and I'm only just starting to get out again. It's certainly brought a smile back to my face! I really didn't have much knowledge of the current Mini - I'm old enough to remember the launch of the original BMC Minis back in the day and fought with a few of them in their time, although I admit to not being a big fan. I have to say that I'm impressed with the modern car in nearly every respect, but I think some aspects of the spec are idiosyncratic and over complex, but maybe that's part of the fun! The handbook is also the most badly produced car manual I've ever encountered, very frustrating finding out the most simple thing. Better manuals come out of China written in Chinglish.

Hi my names lee hopefully I'll become a familiar name here
I've just purchased an r56 mcs and intend on doing some engine mods to get the power up a fair bit
I've been modifying cars for years mostly engine mods
My last few cars have been big v8 turbos so I wanted to have some fun and try to see what I can safely get the r56 to run
(And controllably )
I'm sure I'll be asking for some advice and hopefully able to help others in there Querys

Recent Mini Purchase of a 2008 S model.
Loving everything so far!
This brings back fond memories of the VW GTI that I used to own in the late 1980's.

Just picked up my 2010 cooper S R56 and I'm so addicted the the chic appearance and everything of it.
I'm going to strengthen the performance since it's "S". Any suggestions under the hood?

Hello,

I have just picked up one of my obtainable dream cars... a 2011 Cooper S.

Only had 27,500 miles on it when I got it. Freaking mint

I'll post pics after I reach the 15 post mark.

Size Matters.
