Mini cooper S or just mini cooper
I have bought a car from Malaysia which was exported there from new. All the original paperwork from Malaysia stated it was a mini cooper S Mk2and has been registered in England as a mini cooper S Mk 2 but it only has a 998 engine fitted. Can anybody tell me if this is a genuine mini cooper S , or is it a mini cooper.

No we can’t. S cars only had the big bore engines. The coopers had the small bore engines. But engines can be changed.

Well you could start of with the chassis number etc and apply for an Heritage certificate that will tell you what the info you provided them with was applied to.

When looking at the cars there are other differences that can be seen.
Disc size for one.

Other option is post up some pictures for us to comment on.

 Weren't the 970 and 1071 "S" Coopers?
