I used to own a '04 MCS, so lets get some facts straight here:With the MINI being made by BMW, all those cry-babies will have lots to cry about when the repair bills start coming in.
Did you know that the transmission cannot be repaired? If something breaks, you have to replace the entire tranny. That's not gonna be cheap!
Cry me a river...
Exactly why I don't own a Mini S today...horror story after horror story, too much particularly when factoring in the price.I had a MINI Cooper S and it was nothing but problems. I still go on the MINI forums once and a while and see that even new MINI owners are having a slew if mechanical issues. (fuel pumps, oil leaks, ratting engine, engine shutdown while driving, and the list goes on and on) Don't take my word for it, check out the mini forums for yourself but don't say I didn't warn you.
