Trust you have done the usual checks;

- second consumer opinion by someone else driving your MINI,
- second expert opinion by another dealer.

Working together with the dealer helped in my case of the left pull. Be open and explain that you are looking around for solutions. Ask them to do the same. If you turn to another dealer it is very likely that they will contact your dealer so it's handy if they are aware. Push to get MINI (BMW) UK involved. Keep the pressure on! One of the reason for buying a new car is warranty. Your car still is under warranty and let them sort this out.

Sorry this is not providing the solution .........

(Just a small side note: make sure you keep record of your communications [call notes etc.]. Does not have to be formal but an e-mail to your dealer with your findings can be helpful once the discussion get messy. It provides trace and evidence of what you have done and your dealer has not. Hope you never need it, but better safe than sorry)

sounds like dirt in the injectors or something ecu electrical, stress danger to dealer and if you aint modded anything critical push for warranty repair or replacement - best to get the regional engineer / BMW involved if you are not satisfied with the dealers response

Assuming you dont have an aftermarket jobbie, the air filter does not get changed until the inspection 2 service (40K approx). Mine was well and truly clogged at about 17K. As a simple step, whip the top off the filter box and stand back in amazement at just how dirty the filter is.

If I remember rightly, the standard paper filter will cost you about a tenner. There's a "how to" in the faq section.

Hope it helps.

It's worth to try ... if it doesn't solve it, it's another check in the box and excludes a possibility.
