Hi everybody. I just bought a used, 07 Cooper, 120hp petrol engine. I bought it from a BMW dealer in Germany, with 1 year EUROPlus Warranty.

First of all the car is great. I love it more than anything. But I must say there are some issues with it.

The other day I heard a noise from the rear suspension, or some suspension related issue, when I go over bumps, even on no bumpy road, it feels like something is moving in the back of the car. It's the same sound that a metal screw would make if left in the spare tyre space. The strange thing is that the sound is hard to be recreated, as it's not constant. We constantly had under -10 degrees the last days, could the sound go away when warmer ?

Also, from what I've seen on other forums, the engine rattle. I will get it checked, but is this a real problem only with the Cooper S ? I mean, everywhere i checked for the rattle on the web, it was always a CooperS, didn't see people with normal Coopers complaining.

ohh, another issue i forgot about, when I start the car in the morning, or after it hasn't been running for a night or so, when I leave the engine to heat up, in the first moments the car acts like it wants to die on me.

Older cars had manual shocks, these have automatic ones, and it feels how the shock starts, and the rev fluctuatesc about 400 500 revs, and like I said it feels as the car will die on me.

this happens only on cold mornings.

this is the first car I'm driving with a small petrol engine. I have other BMW's from 2.5 to 3l engines, WITH larger batteries, and the rev also fluctuates when cold start, but not like in the Mini. Could it be that a smaller engine with a smaller battery has this issue amplified ?

The "cold start" rattle is normally associated with Cooper S models.

You may want to look at threads in the 2nd Gen Faults & Fixes forum regarding start up problems ...

I have the same noise at the rear on my 07 mini cooper. It goes away if we have 4 people in the car. Thought it was seatbelts rattling in the back but it's not that. Really annoying!

Picked my 07 Mini Cooper up on Thursday and Ive got to ring Monday to take it back, I have found a knocking from the back end, also what I can describe as a scuffing when first starting off and only when driving upto 10MPH, Hopefully this will be sorted next week

I recently bought a 2007 MINI Cooper and love it, but the rattle from the back is driving me mad. Did you ever find the source of the problem? I think mine is getting worse.
