My 2010 Mini Cooper Clubman S, turbo, has low fuel pressure upon start-up. Engine dies and stumbles for a moment. Then, it picks up and runs well. I was occasionally having a loss of power at higher speeds, but changed the fuel filter and that problem has gone away. It acts like a bad fuel pressure regulator. I haven't measured the pressure at the fuel rail, but feel that it goes to zero after the car sits for a while. If you start up soon, it runs fine. IS THE REGULATOR BUILT INTO THE HPFP? Can it be fixed separately from the high pressure pump? Thank you so much.

if high pressure fuel is the issue, the pump has to be replaced as a unit. A solenoid is used to control pressure.

You might call your dealer and see if you qualify for the extended warranty on the HPFP. They're expensive units, as you can see below:
