    So I'm having more of this endless fun with my mini. R56 Cooper S N18 2010, has started blowing white smoke with a blue tinge out the exhaust when I rev it after it has sat idling for a few minutes, smells like burning oil more than sweet I think. Coolant level seems to be stable and...
  2. MINI Faults & Fixes
    So I took my Mini into the dealership to get a quote for break replacement. By the time I was done the bill was $8800.
