Works GP2 purchase.

Hi Guy's,
I've had my Cooper for nearly 10 years since buying it new in April 2004.
It's been great but i'm thinking of buying the GP2.
Now, my question is this, are there any issues with this car that I need to be aware of before spending more on this car than any i've ever had in the past?
For example, i've heard members here talking about a 'death rattle' and heads
suffering from carbon build up's etc.
What should I be looking out for/be aware of?
I just want to make sure I go into this with my eyes open.
Cheers fellas.

GP2 has the N18 engine ...

The "death rattle" was on the N14 engine. Jury is still out on carbon build-up on the N18 engine.
