Hello! New to MINI

Hey! I just got a 2008 S with around 26k miles on it. It is dark blue with front racing stripes and a checkered sunroof. I love it! I'm excited to learn more about it and how to keep it reliable and running smoothly! Nice to meet you all!

Thumbs up Awesome

Mini looks great. You will just have so much fun in this car.

The only thing I will say about up keep is take it to a Mini dealer or someone who knows Mini. I had a simple thing done (the water pump) and also got my radiator fluid changed with it. The shop said they know Euro Cars, I always see Audi, BMW, Merc, Rover etc there. Well the car was not getting very warm with the heat on. I posted my issue here and was told what was thought was the problem and ShaaZaam with just some simple air bleeding (they should have known that I think) it was fixed

So now I have chewed your ear off, just be careful where you go for service. The little xtra money at a dealer is worth it.

Enjoy your ride, it's sweet lookin
