This is my 3rd mini over the years. Had a brand new 2005 Mini Cooper. Then a few years ago, bought a 2007 R56 which I loved, even though it enjoyed a drink of oil!
Sold that after my divorce and had a variety of cars, Skoda Octavia VRS, BMW 325 and then an Audi S4 Avant.
This was initially bought as a cheap runabout and replaced the Audi, as my main form of transport is a motorcycle.
It's developed a few issues in the month of ownership though.
It doesn't have steering controls for the stereo, if I get one on eBay, is it just plug and play? I may also swap out the centre Speedo for an android head unit, has anyone done one of these? I've seen a few reviews and they seem good, you just loose the Speedo in the middle.
A few issues are the rear passenger barn door won't open, this occured after the fuse box in the drivers footwell was replaced, when the fuel pump relay failed. It's also going in on Tuesday for a vanos sensor replacement.
Rear washer and wiper also stopped working after the fuse box was replaced.
The fuse box was from a different model mini, which might be why, I just need to figure out what's wrong (if anyone has any suggestions)
