I have a R57 2010 mini Cooper conv.(manual) and it also happened to me I had my car in my garage for about 3 -4months without driving. I finally took it out for a ride and 30 mins into the ride ride when I exit the freeway my car started stalling on me ....i pulled to the side and waited for 15 mins and tried to started again and it it stayed on ....I drove for another 30 mins and same thing happened. I finally made it home but now I'm scared of driving it, I don't want to be left stranded again in the mountains. I took it to the dealer not long ago and got it checked out (I get this done every other year) and the report they gave me everything came out good just needed an oil change so I dont understand why my car is doing this. By the way I got NO lights turned on ...not even the check engine light NOTHING.....Please help!!!!

You should post this in the Gen2 Stock Problems/Issues area. We Gen1s have a different engine and fuel delivery system.

My 05 S will start cold and usually run fine but it's after warm and turning off the engine, sometimes when I restart it will crank, rpm's go to 8-900 and then dies. And it won't start again until it's been sitting at least an hour our gets cold. Wierd thing is it doesn't happen all the time and the mech can't replicate the problem. Last time it died I was taking it for tire rotate. It had been running while going home from work. Stopped for short period to change clothes and go to tire store. Dirven and stopped until tech took it into the bay. Driven into the bay to rotate the tires and stopped. Driven out of the bay and parked. I received the keys within 5 min and started it only to have it die in the parking lot. No particular pattern to the problem.
