Australia MINI Service / Decoking Perth WA

Hi everyone,

Long time reader, first time poster.

I've finally taken the plunge, and bought myself a MINI - a used 2008 R56 Cooper S with the JCW kit installed. In a word, it's awesome

I've noticed a 'stutter' or sorts, particularly noticeable when the engine is cold, which I'm led to believe may be a result of carbon build-up on the intake ports. The previous owner didn't do a whole lot of kms (just over 70k), but I'm guessing a lot of that was through traffic.

Has anybody gotten the decoking treatment done on their cars in Perth WA? I sent a request to BMW, but they clearly aren't interested in the work.

I'm not closed to the idea of DIY, but if there is a reputable company willing to do it for a reasonable price, I'm happier to keep my hands clean!

Thanks!

Welcome to the world of MINIs.

If Auto Classic are not interested then I'd suggest trying BM Techniks in Mooney Street Bayswater. (08)9371 3131

Somewhat off topic, but does anyone know of a wrecker in the Perth region that deals with MINIs?

I'm looking for a stock white Cooper S roof spoiler for an R56, to replace the JCW aero spoiler I currently have (and hate).

Open to swaps too, if anyone wants it.
