Hi all,

Thank for accepting me into this forum! I have a Volcanic Orange Cooper 3 door and its only 3 weeks old. I am most concerned that its only hit 2000ks and I noticed this afternoon when the wife started it up that there was smoke coming from the back! It was a noticeable puff but seem to have gone away quickly. I've seen it twice now. I wasn't too sure of the colour, but it was like blue black? It was definately a darker colour. The car had been sitting for about 2 hours prior.

The problem is I live 400kms away from the nearest Mini dealer and my wife is freaking out because she doesn't want to damage the engine.

I was thinking because its a new car, maybe there is something inside motor that gets burnt off eventually but I'm not so sure. Has anyone else had this problem?

:eek:

Hi M156

It was my Cooper that had this problem, which only got worse over time.

Our car would only do it intermittently, but it was discovered that a valve seat had failed in the cylinder head. I needed a new head, plus undisclosed other parts.

Our car was exchanged given that the problem happened with such a low mileage.

Chris.
