Default Returned to a mini - 24th April 2018, 03:50 PM

Hi all,

After returning my r57 and getting a 120d, I decided I missed the mini. Iíve purchased a 2005 Mini Cooper s auto with 76k on the clock, one owner from new with full BMW service history. I am currently looking for a good mechanic in the south Manchester area if anyone has any recommendations. The garage has has it for 3 days trying to do the R56 Cooper s brake upgrade and they canít do it 😫

Im planning on a full Milltek non res exhaust in the next couple of months.

Thanks all �� the mini will have to go back to the dealer at some point, the auto box is not very smooth in first and second, they have changed the oil but it’s no better. I’ll have a word with Mini tomorrow while it’s booked in see if they can do a reset. Still loving it though ����
