Can anyone help me? I have a mini one D 2016 with 8500 miles on it. It is just coming to a year old now. My onboard computer said I needed a service so I took it into the mini dealer. The computer was checked and I was told that the computer had been set incorrectly to the date of manufacture instead of when it was put on the road. They then reset the computer and it is now saying that my first service will be in another year or another 10000 miles. I have talked to a few local garages who have said that, although it is long life oil in the engine, they would not recommend going more than a year or 6-7k miles without an oil and filter change. I know the onboard computer is meant to calculate the driving style to calculate when the oil needs changing but should it really be left 2 years? When I asked the mini garage about this they said to just leave it for the 2 years as I have the TLC pack.
Also, does anyone know what type of engine the new mini one D has. I have been told the petrol is just a Peugeot engine but I can't find any information on the diesel.
