Question:
For a while now, my New MINI Cooper has had an annoying creak I hear as I drive it. It is more audible when I am driving it, but can also be heard by a passenger. It seems to stem from the rear. I have taken my New MINI Cooper to the grave for a temp gauge change, and they looked at my base suspension and said all was ok, and the guy could not hear the creak. Tends to happen over bumps, and at slower speeds. Could it be my bushings needing repair?
Answer:
I'm wondering if the bushings on the rear control arms may have dried out. You might try lubricating the ends of the control arms. Since they are rubber bushings, you might use a non-petroleum lubricant like silicone lubricant.

Here are links to the interior trim on the underside of the convertible top:

center trim
side trims

The MINI catalog does not list any hardware with these trims, so I suspect they are secured by molded tabs on the trim...
