The old Mini engines were Chrysler products, also used in the Neon. I believe they switched engine in 2007 with the new model generation.
I have a 2005 Cooper S myself, and this old construction doesn't make half as fun as the new BMW-developed ones.

I tried the 118i during the introduction at dealer in September and loved it!
The 2007+ Mini engines were a joint development with PSA Peugeot CitroŽn.
