    Hey guys , first I think I know the problem with the rust in the 3 and 4 terminal of the coil, What happens is over time moisture get in there because the way the design is with the exhaust, when your MINI goes through snow/ salt, water or anything wet it hits the exhaust and steam is produced , the steam goes in and corrodes the terminals if the boot on the terminal is not completely sealed. Also the coil tips are made of metal that does not do well with moisture. One other thing, the water and air from the front vents deflects into the plug boots because of the direction. Hence why 3 and 4 are always worse.

    I clean mine all the time and with the amount of snow and salt, they last about 3,000 miles till they rust again.

    Dielectric grease does help a bit.

    Hope this helps and BTW is you need mechanical fix advice let me know.
