New to minis

Hi all. I have just bought a 2009 Mini Cooper D hatchback. 65,000 miles with main dealer Fsh and one previous owner. Any tips and/or advice of maintenance, future repair prevention, etc.? Thanks

The PSA's are great power units and with regular oil changes (every 6000 miles) then they will do ridiculous mileage. If it has stop start then turn it off as its a waste of time and a turbo/ starter/ flywheel and battery killer! The PSA unit is well proven and used by a lot of different car manufacturers, Ford/ Volvo/ MINI etc
