Lohen is often asked questions like:

  • Which model of MINI do I have?

  • Which generation of MINI do I own?

  • How do I know if I have a generation 1 or 2 MINI?

  • I have a convertible MINI: which R or F model is it?

It's certainly more common than you'd expect so we've produced a handy guide for you to quickly cross reference your MINI's build date and model against the year to know exactly what you're dealing with. So whether you're bopping around town in an R50 MINI Cooper or blasting those country lanes in an R56 Cooper S, now you're in the know.
