My wife is looking at a 2006 Mini Cooper (not an "S")and we are wondering if the Tritec engine has the cold start engine issue similar to the R56?. The owner did bring it to the dealer once due to excessive engine noise on start-up but I am wondering if the problem on these models is as chronic as on the newer 07/08 models. We live in Vancouver so it will get plenty of cold starts. Any info would be great. Cheers, PZ

I seem to recall that I already answered this question earlier today in an R56 thread

No the Tritec does not suffer from this problem - basically the Tritec engine is more or less bullet proof.

Engine noise on start up is an R56 Cooper S issue only

And very well modified for the MINI :) Takes one hell of a beating on the MCS!
