Have you replaced the ones on the hatch once, twice? Recently did that to the R53, first time.

Replaced hatch lift struts 5 years ago! Putting my third ignition coil pack on today! On my third set of front wheel hubs! And the list goes on! :D

Kudos to Baron MINI for diagnosing my bad coil at no charge! Of course, I have given them plenty of business in the past.
