    I have on a couple of occasions in the last few months I have noticed that when I get into my car that the speedo needle is vibrating and buzzing. Only lasts until I turn the key and only rarely does it happen.

    Is this a precursor to a possible problem?

    Nope, no problem forthcoming. All I can say is "welcome to MINI-dom". Chalk it up to yet another quirk that makes the car odd and endearing.

    You woke it up too early...your MINI was still asleep...
    picture if you were to pour a bucket of cold water onto you roommate as they lay sleeping...
    I'm not condoning this behaviour...i'm just saying ;)

    Is this the same as the "Oh, noooooooo......!" from Mr.Bill?
