Original Car Specification?

Was going through the folder of receipts and stuff the other day for the car and realised there is no real specification of the car. It was bought at a private used car dealer, mint condition with 17k on the clock but the first owner who bought the car brand new hadn't included the original specification. Is there a way of getting the specification of the car? If I were to get in touch with MINI would they be able to find out the full spec using the chassis no./engine no./ registration? Cheers

If you know a friendly MINI dealership ask them to print a VZAR Report for you. That will give you the original factory specification of the car.

They will also be able to print a list of every time that car has visited a MINI dealership for any work (but sadly not what work was carried out ).
