Purchased the car in June (2003 mini "S" all Racing Green)! Went to Hell and back to see if I could get a "Tan" Interior! The Dealer was real good in trying to help, but to order a cloth interior, no adjustable lumbar support (Which "old" People need
)is not an Option! So we get Black Leather and the Dark Pannels! So we make the deposit and wait and wait (Did I mention the wait?) then it "Finally" arrives! Looks OK! Because this is for my wife, I want her to drive it first! We drove from Annapolis back to Washington DC (Cold rainy night)! When we get home, I move the car and see that the Clutch engagement point is about 1 inch off of the floor! I do not like this and make mental note of it!
Talking to a few people, no one thinks this is a problem! Finally I call the dealer and speak to the service advisor! Trust me, I am not impressed with her knowledge! To make this long story short, we take the car back to the dealer! The clutch is now between 1/8" and 1/2" off of the floor before it engages! and they must keep the car! My wife is not happy with me because I made her return the car and I am ****ed that after 5 months and $25,000 the Car has an operating expense of $400.00 per mile!
I almost forgot to add that the clip for the drivers sun Visor was installed twisted and the visor flops around! I hope that they do not ruin the headliner trying to fix that!
Questions! #1, Anyone have Clutch Problems like this??
#2, Any problems with the Sun Visor??
#3, Anyone Happy with the "limited" choices of Interior on the (Upscale) "S", vs. the cheaper Cooper??
