I’m sure that by now most of you have already read about this someplace. Turns out there is a problem with some of the emission components on some ’02 & ’03 build MINI’s. I got my official recall notice yesterday.

I’m not due for service for another 6800 miles, so I am going to call and see if I can wait or if I should do this now, you know, before the SCSET cracks down and busts me for pumping an additional .0023 ppm of particulates* into the atmosphere.
*not an exact number. In fact, I really have no idea how this part actually causes more bad stuff to exit the vehicle. But, I will get it fixed.
