Hi i had a very bad experience when purchasing my mini cooper 02. the dealer sold with warranty but he wont fix the problems with the car which are a s follows:
1) REALLY strange constant whining noise, not comiing from engine but kind of near the steering wheel/dashboard. if i steer its worse, but even if i just turn the car on - the noise is present to a lesser degree.
2) The wheels fitted are brande new 18" JCW
alloys - is this ok for a normal cooper? the steering seems a little odd and i dont think the suspenion is upgraded or anything. also the warning lght comes on for tyre pressure (110mph) the dealer said this is because the cars standard tyres were not run flats - it just needs resetting, is this right??
The body kit (black wheel arches side skirts,) are bigger than other coopers i have seen and they dont align properly.. there seems to be slight gaps... maybe just badly fitted??
I would ask my delaer but he wont talk to me, even though i have a recepit with "warranty parts and labour 6months"..
