2016 F56 - things to look for when buying?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

No, I'm not selling my MINI, but a friend is looking to buy a 2016 (or thereabouts) F56 Cooper S and has asked me what to look for when buying. Apart from the known steering wheel / horn push issue and the basics (low miles, low former keepers, warranty, decent seller) I'm stumped. Can anyone help, or point me to decent on-line resources? 

Thanks in advance,

If he’s after direct answers regarding an F56 then tell him to join ‘F56 Owners UK’ on Facebook. There’s quite a bit of tips in there!


Like you  mentioned above common things are


~ Horn

~ lower engine stabiliser link (bush moves and rubs on oil sump) If car has warranty enquire if it’s been done or looked at - depends on age if vehicle and part number

~ Water ingress in the boot under the floor where the inflation kit sits, if any sign of water then it could be a fault with boot seal, have it checked by MINI
