did you ever get this sorted ??I just tried to add our new [to us] 2011 R56-S to the Mini Connected app, by keying in the last 7 digits of the car's VIN as requested on-screen. However, the app tells me "This vehicle cannot be registered to your account"
I'm guessing the car may have been added to Mini Connected via the previous owner and the app doesn't want to add it a second time into my account. Is there any way I can clear theprevious registration/association by pairing up the car's Mini Connected system and going through a reset process or something?
i ask as i tried this for my 2012 Cooper D thats new to me too & got the same - at the time i assumed it was because times have moved on & they have changed to focus more on the newer models instead of those of us buying older models ( was about ready to jump ship from my android phone to an older apple product to get the full benefits of the connected features on the dash lcd panel etc - dont use my phone for that much so a downgrade in phone would be ok assuming it worked on the car etc - all the owners manual states it has to be apple products )
