My first 600 metres - then a new oil pump

I was really looking forward to our new 2015 Cooper S 3 door. When we took delivery, we left the car lot, and 600 metres down the street, all of the warning lights turned on. I turned back thinking it was a loose sensor, but no, it seems there was moisture in the oil pump, it needs to be replaced.

My question is, what would you do? The car has 30 kms, and I drove less than 1.5 kms. Should I let the dealer replace the oil pump, or dig in and push for a different car?

Moisture in the oil pump sounds very odd do they mean water if so is there water in the oil ie blown head gasket. If so new engine? Lots of ifs here. I'd er on the New car please side of things as this sounds v strange. Certainly your dealer needs to give you an honest explanation and a full one for you to make an informed decision.
That's good.did you ever find out what they meant by water in the oil pump?
