It's amazing how many posts in this thread are wrong regarding gearboxes, what has happened?

Gen 1 ONE & Cooper models - 2001 to July 04 had a 5 speed Midlands box which has a reputation for failure.

Gen 1 ONE & Cooper models - July 2004 to end of run had a 5 speed Getrag box which is not a problem (generally)

Gen 1 Cooper S - 6 Speed Getrag throughout it's lifespan.

Gen 2 cars - 6 Speed Getrag in all models.

Not sure where your post differs that much from the other posts really?

Gen 1 had a dodgy 5sp box in early models, Gen 1 also had a 5sp or 6sp depending on model and the later boxes were much better
