Thought you all might be interested in my steering wheel which I cleaned tonight using Raceglaze Alacantara cleaner. Came up a treat, was very dirty! (Was sold to me like this from the dealer). Much better now though!

Thanks

Not a good day for me and my Mini! Car wouldn't start this morning, had to have the bmw assist man out to get it going. They replaced an engine temperature sensor which was apparently reporting an incorrect reading.

Also need some oil, can anyone recommend a brand and type or advise what they use in their JCW Mini?

Thanks
L

Another sad day for me and my Mini. Been in the garage all day and is now booked in again to have chain tensioner etc replaced and to have a new water pump. I was also informed by the dealer that I've apparently buckled an alloy!

Not sure it was worth all this hassle.

Cheers

Update: Car is now back from having timing chain tensioner replaced and has a new water pump. Immediately the car feels better, more responsive and now doesn't sound like a tractor. Just hoping now that nothing else goes wrong with it.

Back from the dealer again. Had vibration damper, water pump pulley and friction wheel replaced.

And a oil service, air filter, spark plugs, pollen filter and brake fluid all changed. - this lot should've been done before I picked the car up as its been 2 years... Not happy with that.
