  1. Second Generation Faults & Fixes
    Hi guys, if you do not own a Diagnostics scanner that can do a Vanos reset/relearn after a timing chain replacement, will it automatically relearn over time? The one I have does show the degrees requested for each cam shaft and the actual, and they virtually match at different rpm, does that...

  9. Maintenance & MINI Care
    Hey guys, so recently bought a 2011 Cooper S and I've been battling an odd sound coming from the engine bay. I narrowed it down to either the chain rattling or the drive belt/pulleys rattling/chugging. I've seen some videos of a similar sound that turned out be the drive belt falling apart and...
