I have recently purchased a 2011 Mini Cooper SD and i have noticed the clutch pedal travel is really short, you depress the clutch to the floor and the biting point of the clutch is just off the floor and the pedal is then at the end of it's travel.
Is this normal?
Also, when you depress the clutch pedal to start it you basically have to push it through the floor to get it to start, as i am new to the mini scene i was wondering if anyone else has had these issues and what was the cure.

Appreciate any information on this.
