Hi Guys, im new to this forum. I have a 2003 Mini cooper 1.6.

The needs an Inspection 2 and i have been quoted £254 parts and labour from Mini for this plus £77 for the Brake fluid change. I can get all the parts direct from Mini for £81.39.

Can anyone recommend a decent specialist around the Leicester/midlands area to do this service cheaper then Mini. I dont mind travelling as long as it makes financial sence.

I am nearly out of TLC and i have also been given the option of TLC X-cel which would cover the above plus 1 more oil service at £300. This is the option i will go for if i cant find a decent place to do the service.

Thank you in advanced

To be honest, if they are the same price - the answer is obvious - dealer. Get your full mini history preserved, keeping the value of your car higher. I personally would go for the TLC XL, however, if you were not to do this, I would definitely take it to the dealer regardless. Lohen are supposed to be good, and their tuning is also supposed to be good though. Still, the main point is that people see them as a specialist and not a dealer.
