Hi, I live in Newport South Wales. I own a July 2007 build Mini Cooper 'S'.

I deal with Synter who are the local BMW Dealer, and find them very helpful. I suggest that you contact them in preference to using a Non BMW garage.

I actually bought mine from their Cardiff branch, but find Newport more convenient.

Good Luck

Mini Cooper S issue sorted - What was it?....here it is!

Hi,

The car got sorted (thankfully ) and it was found that the thermometer sensor was changed....end of the backfire, black smoke, juddering, shaking and refusing to start.

The garage (a new one I hadnt tried before) had the diagnostics the reliable garage I use hasnt got. I also had an interim service done.


This garage even put on a makeshift oil can to stop the oil leak dripping onto the exhaust at no extra charge.

The car has to have two seals changed in the engine to sort out the minor oil leak(s) when I can afford it. The engine and the gear box needs to come out for the work to be done. The cost will be around £600 to inc the seals and labour.

Car is running beautifully (

Hi there!

I would have used Synter but felt my heart wouldnt handle any heart attack with their prices!!!!!!

Thank you anyway for your reply....but the garage I used was top notch in every way possible and at m--u--c--h lesser cost than Synter

The garage even lent me a car whilst they had the car and kept in top contact with me throughout the whole time they had the car, even putting on a makeshift oil can catcher to stop the present oil leak the car has, dripping onto the exhaust. This stops the burning oily rubbery smell and they didnt charge me any extra to do so. They even brought my car back to me at my home address and collected theirs.

What can I say....! I am totally delighted.
