I decided to write a bit of the neverending issues I am having in South Africa with my 12/2008 JCW
Besides all the new/upgraded Time chain tensioners that I have had fitted in and the 5 fuel pumps (due to bad fuel quality in Johannesburg - I have always filled it up with 95 and Octane booster), I'm already going on my 3rd Engine!!!
1st and Original Engine - 54 000 Kms
2nd Engine - 54 000 kms to 65 000 kms
3rd Engine - 65 000 kms to .... lets see..
I dont understand... It is not my driving as I have a regular city drive and now and then I push the car (its a JCW
This last engine was due to oil going inside cilinder 3 and just packed up!
Has anybody experienced such problems with their JCW
All has been covered by BMW/MINI SA due to being inside motorplan (maintenance plan that covers everything expect tyres)
But I honestly dont understand..
I dont want to get very techincal but I can put the whole log of jobs that have been done in my car..
Any idea who can I contact? Mini Headoffice?
