Your Summertime Reminder

I’m a big fan of taking care of my cars. They cost a lot of money to purchase and a lot to repair. As a bonus, I’m a frugal guy, which means I like to do what I can, when I can. Things like, oh, I don’t know, checking my oil.

Oh, you say you don’t have a 2002-2006 MINI Cooper? You have an R55/56/60?


I share these videos with you today because I’m still hearing about people out there not keeping up with basic maintenance on their MINI. Remember gang, especially those of you that have the letter S in the name of your MINI Cooper, you need to check your oil at every other fuel stop. It is also highly recommended to change your oil at 5,000 mile/8000km intervals. Sure you will have to pay for it, but isn’t that better than having your MINI on the back of a flatbed truck?

Check your oil. Change your oil. Your MINI will thank you.
