What about the 24,000 km oil change?

New MINIs with “full maintenance warranty” are limited to one oil service per year or when the service indicator tells you – this averages around 20-24 thousand km!We believe the engine will fail prematurely due to the extended miles on the oil, and the long-term life of the engine might be extended if more frequent servicing is done. Unlike BMWs, MINI Coopers do not have a oil level sensor. Its up to you or your mechanic. It’s very important to frequently inspect all fluids, belts, tires and hoses.A visit to Sheni’s Auto-Trend every 6 months or 8,000-10,000 km (7,000 on turbo charged models) to change the oil and filter, adjust tire pressures and perform a comprehensive inspection can save you money over the life of your MINI. It could also save you the inconvenience of a breakdown.

Lifetime transmission fluid?

Since 1993, BMW has been sealing automatic transmissions and recommending “no servicing for the life of the transmission except CVT and M-cars.” Now it is true that transmission fluids do not live in the same harsh environment as the engine oil so extended services are reasonable. However, it may be more prudent to replace the transmission fluid and filter every 90,000 km to provide additional assurance that the MINI owner will not experience transmission problems. As with most repairs, Sheni’s Auto-Trend can perform the transmission service the same day.
