Just hit 9000 miles and thought I will top up the oil on the clubman S. While I was at it I thought I would check the girlfriends car and her oil was on the minium and has only did 5000 miles. She hasn't got a mini but a 207cc and I thought they were the same engines as mini so I thought the oil would be fine. So do the new R56s use lots of oil on less miles? My R53 lasted quite a while before I topped the oil up. Has it got something to do with the turbo charged engine?
