Have owned my Cooper S since September. Been a wild ride so far with oil leaks, driver's side window with a mind of its own and sunroof failure.
BUT.... I love it! It is very difficult to drive it without a smile on my face, especially when the conditions allow for pops and bangs to occur - 48 year-old child, me!
I've seen posts from this forum come up multiple times when I've been hunting for tips and tricks so thought it was about time I joined.
