Cayman specialise in solving BMW Mini roof problems
BMW raised the profile of the mini brand in 2001 and it took 3 years to add a convertible to the range – the BMW R52 Cabriolet. A compact cabriolet, albeit a tight squeeze, can accommodate 4 passengers to enjoy open top driving. The 2nd generation R57 came to market in 2009 and the 3rd generation in 2016, growing in every dimension without losing its Mini charm.
Across the Mini soft-top range, if you just want to open the small portion over the front seats, it can slide back 40cm, automatically, at any speed.
Keeping your Mini Cabriolet roof system in top working order is essential and we recommend an annual roof service to keep the convertible roof system well lubricated and free of squeaks.
Like all soft top cabriolets they have their faults and in particular, lack of attention to care and maintenance can lead to water ingress and the usual electrical and mechanical faults caused by water damage on the operational roof system.
