• Can't be a bad thing if that's the case as the handful of Mini owners I know love them and have had next to no issues with them.

    • That would be the Peugeot 207, the successor to this car. Even sharper-looking car imho. Peugeot and BMW co-developed the engine for the 207 and the R56 Mini, and both companies' version of that engine suffered the same issues. Franco-German engineering at its finest. 🙂
