Hi everyone,

just wondering if someone could help.
So today my mini copper SD started to smoke (only been in the car for around 10mins) stopped the car and notice smoke coming from the right wheel arch. We popped the hood and smoke was coming from the engine. It also smelt like hot oil coming through the vents while driving. We took a video so hopefully this might help. Started the car again and no problems. This doesn’t happen every time, just now and then (say every two weeks) very strange!

Noy familiar with the TDs but that looks like the turbo at the back and it may be a turbo seal oil leak onto the exhaust.

Tip: If you engine smokes and you smell hot oil in the cabin, don't keep driving it for several weeks and hope it goes away.

Taking it to a mini specialist now. Been to two garages. First one said it was a sticking calliper and the other said my DPF filter was blocked and that’s was cleaned.

just happened again today but no oil smell just a hot metal heat smell. Not as much smoke too.

hopefully they will find out the problem soon!
