New to the mini but wondering about the Decoking issue that seems to plague these engines
I have the 2010 clubman s (184bhp version)
I have a bit of a rough idle, uneven power distribution when the engine is cold. This appears to disappear when the engine is warm. Probably within the first 5 minutes of driving. It seems quick enough on normal driving and in sport mode. No signs of hesitation there.
The car has done 32000 miles.
Question is, how do you know it is coked up??
Should I be concerned at the mileage we are talking about
Who is best in the northwest to inspect and deal with this
I ask all this because I'm looking into tuning, Chip, map and exhaust work and obviously the engine needs to be sorted/or deemed fit before I go about making upgrades.
Many thanks again
