A customer is a fool if they're depending on the salesman to warn them that the nearest Mini dealer is 500 miles away and that getting warranty service could be a big issue.

U R Rite!!! I was a fool. So what - I can still tell as many people as I can about Mini's history of critical problems, etc. Really most of my trouble has been with the dealer and it's tech's. I feel that with the number of repeat troubles I've had a good back yard mechanic would have done a better job. I finally got a lawyer to get me an appt. with a factory rep. so we will see.
BTW I'm not the only fool here - some people have to waste good time not solving things! Just pointing out other's "faults". Again this "E" sounds like an experienced "salesman (woman)"??
Have a good day unless you have other plans.

The same thing happened to my MC S 03 last night. AAA jumped it OK, but today it got the blinky thing going. I'm calling Mini Service in Cincy tomorrow. Tonight I'm purusing the very think manual I bought for $100. I hope it's the battery of course, but we'll see. I'll write again.

There is a service bulliten on the throttle body and computer that you may want to consider with the dealer.

YES!!!!! Just found your posting! We are having same problem with hubby's 2002 Cooper S. Did you figure out what the problem is? The dealer who sold it to us (not a MINI dealer; ours is second hand) can't seem to replicate it, whilst we have no problem doing so.
Would be interested in hearing your replay.
