If you are like me, when mine hadn't been driven or started for 6-8 weeks I think I heard all sorts of things but they soon vanished when I'd done a few miles Smile

The whine I'm hearing/getting is just as annoying as what usually comes from the passenger seat Wink  but it happens as you lift the clutch pedal.
Its going back to MINI in a couple of weeks for them to sort out some other things so will mention it to them.

Mine has a whine when i pull away. Like a high pitch chirrup for a few seconds when releasing clutch pedal. Been told its the clutch which are prone to go fairly early on these cars. Although im into the late 50's on mine.
Probably not what you want to hear but you can test your clutch by driving off from start in 3rd or 4th gear if it stalls your ok if it doesnt then your clutch is slipping! It may well take a while before your whine gets to the stage of a confirmed slipping clutch. Sorry i hope its only your seat whining!

sounds similar to the issue I had on my r56 a month ago and it was a distortion on the fly wheel which cooper mini Croydon fitted a new clutch and fly wheel under warranty, iv heard a few gen 1s and 2s have had this issue.
