I can somewhat figure that the range of miles may have changed because the gas sloshed around or something. But I cannot figure out how the windows rolled down and the sunroof open all by themselves. Has this ever happened to anyone else. I unbelieveably curious about this one. Thanks.
Did you receive an owner's manual when you bought the car?

If you hold down the "Open" tab on the key fob, your doors will unlock and your windows will open. MINI built this in there to cool down the car before you actually got to it. You probably depressed it accidentally in your purse or pocket as you were walking away.

And you should have two sets of keys.
love my car
