i had enough of my cooper S. Steering, brakes, seats, steering wheel, power steering, then there were the reflashes of the computer all the time at Mini Yaletown. I must admit, the dealer was very good.

EBC Brakes make a big difference. Make sure you have all the electrical upgrades to the fuses for the power steering cooling fan -- its connected to the radiator fan. Strut Tower bar makes a huge difference as well to handling.

Not sure if you fixed it, but it could be one of the coil on plugs being faulty. I guess it's best to get the scan tool then scan which cylinder is misfiring. At least I think it's just a simple misfire.
