Second Service at 30,400 miles

20 April 2011 - Filed under: Servicing

Second service, required due to age rather than mileage. Along with the second brake fluid change.

Service was covered by the TLC package, brake fluid wasn’t. Although at £56 Oxford MINI were nearly half the price of the BMW dealership I visited for a new tyre earlier in the month.

Was given a Cooper D for the day, with the new BMW engine. It was actually quite a giggle, very responsive, and quite nippy, albeit in short bursts.

The updated interior is also an improvement, the small tweaks to the dash are subtle but make the overall finish seem more expensive. I personally prefer the black finish over the grey of the R56.
