United Kingdom
England New MCS cabrio owner


I had a first gen MCS hatch and I've recently acquired a 2005 Mini Cooper S Cabrio. I am really enjoying using the car with the good weather we've had recently and have been having a look round the forum for advice with a couple of problems I've been having.

Thanks for the tips regarding air bag warning lights (got a b800, fault on drivers airbag, wouldn't reset, tried using resistors to simulate airbag but fault still apparent, guess I'm going to have to pass it over to a garage to be fixed).

On the up side I followed advice from here regarding repairing a windscreen washer pump as mine had stopped working, within an hour I had the problem fixed thanks to really helpful information posted by AMcUK, could not believe the amount of stuff that came out of the tank!

Next steps are to make the car feel a little more mine by adding some bonnet stripes, union jack mirror caps and an Orranje stealth induction kit. Once that's done I'm looking forward to a long summer of driving around enjoying the sunshine.


P.S. Pics of car to follow
