Buying a second generation Cooper S

Hi guys,

Currently looking at buying a Cooper S, preferably the 1.6 turbo variant.

Is there anything in particular to look out for when buying one? Anything quirky that might catch me out?
Also high mileage mini's anything to keep me away or again just go off service history and feel of the car when driven?

Any help appreciated.

Google "R56 N14 N18 common problems" and you'll find your answers.

If you can do basic maintenance on the car and leave the bigger jobs to garages/mini specialist, they're not bad cars.
