  1. First Generation Faults & Fixes

    Hi appreciate if someone can provide confirmation/validation on what appear to be two recent and seemingly different oil leaks that I'm seeing per pics when facing the R56 Cooper auto at 90k: No error codes. Replaced the solenoid for an aftermarket one a few months back. Leak 1: Right hand...
