Ahh well, having taken delivery of my Cooper four days ago, I was hoping that I wouldn't have to post here, but...

1) I have the the left pull (not drift) - nothing new I know
2) Power steering whine - again, nothing new
3) Some creeks from dash/seats - *sigh*

But has anyone noticed a "whine" from the engine (noticeable from outside the car) when it's idle? Sounds kinda like the engine fan, but it's constant.

Will investigate further when I have some time this weekend, but any info would be welcome.

The power steering whine is not a fault, it's just something it does.

I like it actually. :)

The dash creaks could settle down, I would probably mention them to the dealer, and make sure they make note, but give everything time to settle in.

Pull left, bummer. :(

Dash creak

I think if you remove the top of the dash, fasten any loose wires down and lightly grease any contact points of plastic on plastic - this should stop creaks etc. behind the dash.

When the dash heats up, it's the top piece expanding and creaking where it touches against other plastic bits.
