Bought a 54 plate mini cooper with a chilli pack, and the insurance company said 'any optional extras?'. 'Err panoramic sunroof', I said.

I then sought help from my local dealer and obtained the sheet of all the 'ordered options', (which a list that stretches the length of a page of A4), but they couldn't say what was in the chilli pack and what is an optional extra. Phoned Mini.co.uk and they want me to dial the Technical Spec helpdesk at £1 a minute. Phoned them and it cost me £1 a time to hear that there was no-one to answer the call.

Arrrgh!

Any help gratefully received as to how to determine what's in the chilli pack and what's extra on a 54 plate Cooper?

Post the specification list you got from the dealer and we'll be able to tell you what was standard and what was an option, otherwise we're just guessing what your car is fitted with...

Ta, apologies for the delay, here's the list of possibles from the Ordered options list. I've divided them into:
1) those that I think are either on the base Cooper or are in the Chilli pack
02RB 16" 7 Spoke FIN alloys
0255 3 Spoke Spts Lea St Wheel
0302 Remote Control Alarm
0325 Rear Spoiler
0346 Chrome Line exterior
0450 Pass Seat Height Adj
0481 Sports seats front
0520 Front foglights
0441 Smoker package
0493 Storage compartment pack

2) those that I think are optional extras above the chilli pack
0210 Dynamic Stability Control
0228 Sports suspension PLUS
0403 Elec Panoramic Glass Roof
0547 Cockpit Chrono package
0563 Interior light package

3) those that I'm not sure about.
0327 White bonnet stripes
0382 Roof and mirror caps in white
0427 Interior trim Silver
0530 Air conditioning manual

Grateful of any confirmation yu can offer. Many thanks

Your're pretty much there if memoery serves, 493, is an extra, the rest is all on mine which has chilli pack, Aircon is also part of the pack on a cooper not sure about steering wheel i think thats an extra too, all in (2) are extras except last one.

The stuff in 3 i wouldnt even bother about as they can be changed at will.

Actually Si (not often your wrong but...) The Sports Suspension plus IS part of the chili pack on that age of car - it was on mine ;) Although you could decide not to have it if you wanted a smoother, less sporty ride, it was part of the pack ;)
