    (Delete if this is the wrong thread/I know it’s a duplicate post) I have a 2005 Mini Cooper with 30k miles on it. It’s not a daily and was well kept since new. It recently became my dad’s beach-goer, and I thought sand was the problem. However, after lots of cleaning, the turn signals still do...

    TPMS Light on 005E5C code. Main dealer said my TPMS light stays on but no fault code. Yesterday a used MINI Specialist in Cheltenham area did my service and noticed it was on. He ran a diagnostic check and it threw up the above code. He didn't have time to investigate further. Anyone else come...

    Hi team - I seem to be getting a small amount of water in my passenger footwear. It appears to gather on the sill and then drip into the footwell. Really small amount. Anyone had similar or know a fix?

    Hi all, hoping for some advice with my 2006 R52 - having some major issues with the car and was hoping for some pointers before a potentially spenny visit to the garage. My mini has started cutting its electrics out when revved to above 3000 rpm - issue started on the dual carriageway when...

    Just joined the Mini Fan Club with the purchase of my first Mini. Car's in great shape but the small bumpers that support the daytime/fog lamps are broken. Can anyone point me in the right direction for replacements? They screw into the bumper from the backside, just below the hood to help...

    So my 05 r52 Cooper S has been sputtering for the past two weeks. I did 2 fuel treatments to rule out water in the fuel and the car eventually starved for fuel and died on me while I was on the interstate last Saturday. Got the report back from the dealership today and nothing even remotely...
