My mini ('09 S, automatic) is backfiring after I turn it off. Yes, I know about the "burble" you can hear when you shift gears in a manual, this obviously isn't my problem. Details inside. [more inside]

phew, i get to ask my first question! yeah!!! ok, i am interested in purchasing a USED mini cooper. i am on a budget and want to make the most of my money. in short: what is the sweet spot where miles/age/dollars converge to make an awesome purchase? what should i be looking for in terms of repair records? where in their lifetime/mileage do minis typically need an expensive repair? any tips would be greatly appreciated. thank you in advance.

What do you all think of the 2004 Mini Cooper convertible? Specifically, in comparison to a 2004 mini beetle convertible, or a well-cared-for 2001/2002 Cabrio convertible (I don't think they made a convertible Cabrio after 2002)?
