United-Kingdom Newbie with 06 mini one =]

Hey all

Im new here and just got a 2006 mini one which i love only had it for about a week with 88k on the clock and one owner previous personally i think it drives beautifully i am a qualified mechanic but minis are not my specialty haha. Basically just have a few questions and wondering if any experienced owners could give me a few pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Right to the questions.

How do i know if i own first or second gen i think it is second gen.

I have heard alot about the gearboxes on minis being terrible and i haven't had the best luck with gearboxes in the past.

And finally any recommendations for mods such as looks and performance been looking at miltek and bluefin when i have the cash but hearing the gearbox issues i don't want to be putting any more power through it haha help please =]]

Thanks Joe.
