Valve gunk can devalue performance.
Something to be aware of as a Mini owner is a tendency for carbon build up on the intake valves, especially for turbo-charged models from 2007 onward. A lot of short haul trips driving around town can cause this build-up of contaminants and oil droplets that harden and cool because the engine doesn’t have time to heat up to full operating temperature. This means your valves should be cleaned at a minimum every 50,000 kms.
Oil quality has a maximum impact.
Oil change intervals according to the service indicator on the dash are approximately 25,000 km between oil changes. We recommend more frequent oil changes (minimum every 10,000 kms) to maintain engine performance and reliability over the life of your vehicle.
It will also benefit you to come into Motor Werke every 6 months for a Mini service courtesy inspection to check hoses, brakes and fluids, and get a visual inspection of the vehicle. Regular Mini service and repair can save you money over the lifetime of your vehicle, so you can enjoy the maximum fun of driving it.
