What's the Best Used MINI to Buy. I will be explaining the pros and cons of the three generations of MINI's and which one is the most reliable in my opinion. Thank you for watching! ------- Post video comments and Pro -Tips - I highly recommend having the vehicle inspected "Pre-Purchase Inspection" by a MINI specialist , either a dealership or independent shop before purchasing. Not only could it save you a ton of money and future heartache but it can give you extra leverage in negotiating purchasing price. -Once you do purchase your MINI ( congratulations by the way) it is paramount you check or have your engine oil level checked every other week, as the engines naturally consume oil and there is no oil level sensor to tell you when you are low on the first and second generations. You can use the dipstick to check. -Recommend having the transmission serviced ( fluid, filter and computer reset if applicable) every 80k miles or less by a specialist. This will help maintain the life of the transmission. If it has super high mileage I would just leave it alone and hope for the best. Doing a service may just upset it and cause issues. --------------- And for all the motorheads out there her are the engine & body designations by year. The following are the engine codes for all current MINI Cooper’s (Not Classics) First Generation MINIs 2002-2006 R50 Cooper = W10 (W10B16) 1.6 Non Supercharged 2002-2006 R53 Cooper S = W11 (W11B16) 1.6 Supercharged NOTE: 1st gen convertibles were made at the same time the 2nd gen Coupe was. Lots of people get confused when they have a 2007 or 2008 convertible and think its a 2nd gen. 2005-2008 R52 Cooper Convertible = W10 (W10B16) 1.6 Non Supercharged 2005-2008 R52 Cooper S Convertible = W11 (W11B16) 1.6 Supercharged Second generation MINIs NOTE: 2nd gen Convertible was released in 2009 in Cooper and Cooper S trim. 2007-2010 R56 and R57 Cooper = N12 (N12B16) Non Turbo 2007-2010 R56S and R57S Cooper S = N14 (N14B16) Turbo 2008-2010 R55 Clubman = N12 (N12B16) Non Turbo 2008-2010 R55S Clubman S = N14 (N14B16) Turbo Engine change for 2011 2011 + R56 and R57 Cooper = N16 (N16B16) Non Turbo 2011 + R56S and R57S Cooper S = N18 (N18B16) Turbo 2011 + R55 Clubman = N16 (N16B16) Non Turbo 2011 + R55S Clubman S = N18 (N18B16) Turbo 2011 + R60 Countryman = N16 (N16B16) Non Turbo 2011 + R60S Countryman S = N18 (N18B16) Turbo 2011 + R60S Countryman S ALL4 = N18 (N18B16) Turbo Source – Post by Professor on the Bluegrass MINIs site Third Generation MINIs The engines now have a B code and are modular in design.

We discuss the worst trends of 2018 and 2019 in the automotive world and how it affects the average consumer and enthusiast. The video lists the top 10 items, and we invite the community to embrace the drama and provide feedback. This fun exercise should help car companies improve or delete these features so we can have better products long term. Some of the content is satire, comedic however much of the discussion is about the serious state of modern problems in cars. A quiet addition to The Fine Print Series. Outro Music: Alan Fowler Music
The F56 chassis is tough because wheel fitment is so limited and not that many people have played with it yet. We get her 2015 Mini Cooper S fitted with some 18x8 ET45 Konig Rennforms and test some new BC Racing BR Coilovers with prototype camber plates. Going to be making more videos with the mini in the future - subscribe to see more!

This week Throttle House looks at the 2019 Mini Cooper. Pretty much the most basic form of it in fact. However, with all of the tech ridden over-complicated cars out there, this little Mini is remarkably refreshing.
