My daughters mini 2004 85k mileage has started to make vibration/ buzzing sound from below the gear stick/ gearbox. Have a video with sound but unsure how to attach it! Anything obvious to look for or any know issues that surface on this model? Thanks

gearbox failures are very common would need to listen to noise to get a idea on it, what people do is to post it on Utube and then copy and paste the browser from top of screen on that link to your message on here link below for you tube

Sir, I think the car was used hard without proper service or it was not service property i request to consult an expert imminently i am using mini last five years it is excellent car very smooth Drive https://www.flipbell.com/@utubeindia
tell that to all the past owners that bought them from new and in first couple of years had new gearboxes, over the years more and more have dropped and people have had rebuilt by gearbox specialist with better parts, where the factory ones terrible nothing to do with being abused, that said bmw's idea of gearbox sealed for life dont help ie should change oil at least at 40k if it makes it there 20k better as reduces the amount of metal particles in the oil grinding away at it, dont know if being 52 years old and worked as time served tech for most of that classes me as a expert or not, maybe not, as like the timing chain issues and steering pump issues and all kinds of issues with their cars main agents say its all down to driver abuse, and no problems really exist in their world,, sometimes i wish that was true, but mostly its pays my bills lol
