I picked up an 8,000 mile Jan 04 Cooper S on saturday morning. It has chilli and hence 17" S Spokes. What tyre pressures should I run it at? The book says 33psi but this seems very firm and crashy for the poorly surfaced streets of Edinburgh where I live.

Also is reverse an effort to engage on these getrag boxes?

Drove the car for 400 miles home on saturday in al types of conditions and it was sweet as a nut cruising at 80 on motorway. Every so often we boarded it just to hear the supercharger whine!

yes certainly not crunching just very solid feeling
I wondered about that when I picked up my S too - gets better over time :) But is always nice and firm.
