However never heard great things about the R50/R53's with BMW having some teething issues when they started out!? Can any of you offer any help in pointing me in the right direction? Mainly looking to get either a R50 Cooper or R56 Cooper S / JCW, Which would be the best to start my dive into MINI's!? Your help is most wanted Thanks!
