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!

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.
