I've had my 2012 Mini Hardtop in BRG for 5 weeks. I got my first half a pin head point nick on the edge of my drivers door when I opened it in my garage and hit a piece of plywood. You can hardly see it, but I KNOW IT'S THERE!!! Guess I'll stop by the dealer and get them to touch it up. Don't trust anyone else to do anything on my Mini. May change mind when warranty runs out.
