MINI can't find the reason for the engine vibration & there is nothing they will do about it unless they can pin point exactly what is causing it.
What are you on about buddy, wouldnt believe it for a second
A friend of mine bought a new hatch last year. This year, 4000 something miles on the clock, he loses oil pressure about 15 minutes away from home. So he drove the car all the way anyway
Here is a timeline, yeah. He calls mini uk on saturday around 1pm - their engineer is on his doorstep in about 40 minuts. Plugged in his diagnostic tool, 10 minutes later the result comes back, something is wrong with the oil pump. So they need to take the car to the dealers. The engineer then calls his office arranges everything, including a courtesy car, and leaves. Another hour later a truck tows my mates hatch away. And as the truck leaves the gates, a guy from enterprise delivers a courtesy car
Thats all done within 3 hours on saturday afternoon, yeah. The dealer then spent whole monday looking at the oil pump. So my mate gets a call from the dealer a day later and is told that as their mechanics couldnt figure out what exactly was wrong with the pump they sent all telemetry to BMW in real time and they said dont bother, just replace the pump. The next day the new pump is shipped, fitted and tested. All in all, my mate is driving his hatch again on wednesday
