What engine and gearbox?

Just bought a 2007 Cooper D with automatic gearbox.

Where does the engine come from? Is it by BMW or from an external producer (PSA, Toyo etc.)?

What type of automatic is the gearbox? I realise its not a CVT, but is it a "standard" "oldschool" automatic, or a modern type like the DSG or a robotized mechanical type similar to a smart's, Renault's "Quickshift" etc.?

Your engine is a BMW/PSA design built at the BMW engine plant at Hams Hall. (It's a fine motor although now superseded by a BMW-designed unit built, I think, by Magna in Austria.)

Dunno anything about automatics!
