MINI Cooper Models
MINI Cooper models are categorized using the letter R or F and then 2 digits. This is the chassis code format that BMW uses. There are some inconsistencies but for the most part they are pretty intuitive. Generation 1 and 2 MINIs start with the letter “R” while the generation 3 MINIs start with the letter “F.”
