Hi all
Ive been wanting a mini hatch ever since I can remember and I've found the one I want - being on a lowish budget I'm happy to settle for something and then maybe upgrade in a few years when I'm more financially stable.

Anyway, about the car; 2007, mini hatch 1.6L petrol with 111,000 miles, 3 doors and 6 gears. I've heard all the horrors about people having issues with them but I just don't feel like I can resist.

Is there anything I should look out for when it comes to a car like this? I'm pretty much dead set on it but everyone's like 'nooo don't get a mini'

Can I have some positive feedback please?

Owned Mini for a few months now , no major issues .
1. Leak from engine /rocker cover, gasket needed , fixed myself after watching vid tutorial £30. So advice checking for leaks.
Burns oil quickly, so check level’s.
Check spark plugs for oil.
I only suggest these things as they were my issues .

Car runs a dream , and after remap so much fun.

Am I doing something wrong??? The Satnav on my mini cooper does not recognise several villages in Norfolk including one with about 400 inhabitants! I put a road name in and it didn't recognise that either but when I got there the road name was showing on the map!!!! Is it just a useless system?
