Hello

I am looking for a new car, with a mini at the top of my list (wise choice I'm sure you will agree) having a mk1 mx5 just now I am looking for something funky and the mini fits the bill ! I am looking for a mini one or cooper '02/'03 plate and thought I would ask the experts (you guys) for the typical flaws/faults to look out for. I have test driven a mini one and love the styling.
I have heard about the passenger airbag seat sensor being faulty. The one I drove had a flashing tyre pressure warning light which the owner said was a common fault?
I was also looking for advice on high mileage mini's with service history. I presume being a BMW engine that they are good for it ?

Thanks in advance, Ag.

Actually I think you'll find that there are more MINI owners with just about zero problems as it's usually the problems are what get posted.

'05 owner. Zero defects in just about 4 years now. :)
