I agree with most of the things you said expect for:
-fuel consumption -i have averaged 44.2mpg
-mine does rattle a bit more now and paint is chipped a fair bit
-also got tired of replacing fog lights every time they crack- they still work so just leave them alone now
-my brakes have never been replaced but are due at next service

The chrome along the rear belt line has been replaced under warranty and the inside fan motor stuck after a period of inactivity- so was no blown air (and Heating!!) but Mini services were great and fixed it the same day at my house!

Tyres last forever- i have Michelen energy tyres and seem to last about 40 000 miles!

After 50 000 miles took out another Mini TLC to last another 3 years (for me will be limited by mileage, not time though).

All in all- this is the best time for the All4 in the ice and wet and still love how the car corners and drives (mostly) although should have got the "S"- probably will in April 14.

Impressed that your brakes have lasted that long! Is it the Cooper D ALL4 you own? If it is, that's reasonable mpg.
