02 S RegisterAbout
The 02 S Register is for those who own or have an interest in BMW MINI Cooper S models built in 2002.
Your MINI does not have to be on an 02 plate, as 52 plates were issued in 2002.
We also welcome any information you may have on the early MINI Cooper S and we look forward to opportunities to get together these early MINI Cooper S models together and enjoy them.

The below table lists ALL right hand drive MINIs manufactured in 2002, identified by their TC6nnnn VIN numbers. Unlike the R50 MINIs where the launch of right hand drive MINIs was initially limited to the UK the R53 was launched in 4 right hand drive regions (UK, Japan, Australia and South Africa) very close together. Therefore the VIN numbers of any one region are not necessarily sequential.
For anyone searching to buy an early R53 MINI Cooper S
this list may prove useful. It lists the first 500 or so registration numbers for UK MINIs to help you find that early VIN number when buying!
Changing the filtering of the country column also makes it possible to see how a large number of the early VINs ended up abroad. Therefore it's worth considering this when working out how early in the UK market each car is. This is the purpose of the Country Order column.
We have a sister Register for Y REG MINIs. This site allows each owner of an R50 MINI to register their MINI with the site. This feature is not currently available on the 02S Register.
