Hi guys, I am from Brisbane, Australia. I own a 2012 Mini Cooper S Countryman R60.
I have read some of the coolant leaks post from this forum. I did learn something about the cooling system on my R60. But lately I have this issue came on me, coolant leaks... I found posts that is similar to my case but not actually the same. So long story short...
I have took the car to my mechanic to have a look and he reckon the leak is from the bottom of the oil cooler (I have attached a picture).
He asked his friend who I believe work in BMW, he suggested to replace the oil cooler, also the hosing around. which I looked up on the internet, if I get every parts that he mentioned, the OEM parts is over 2~3000 dollars. (i have attached few images as well)
It doesn't seems to have much aftermarket parts specify for R60, I have seen a lot for R56 though.
Just wondering any brothers/sisters here know anywhere I can get replacement parts cheaper?
Any suggestions are welcome...
