Mini forum is :disgust:

2 days for a reply, I asked about how much oil changes cost at :dillerman: got some :fakenews: with one guy stating that he spends $67, but it’s a once a “month special” at the :dillerman:

Another guy saying don’t change at 10k you have to do it at 5k, I asked :butwhy: and if he sent to Blackstone, he came back with “what’s Blackstone ? I am doing it every 3k and I know I’m wasting money but I don’t care”
:triggered: by the :fullretard: ignorance
I hear you.
I signed up on North American Motoring as that seemed most active, but it’s still just about dead.

I wouldn’t worry about changing it every 10k.
Mfrs state like 15-18k in Europe and although that’s more than I’d be comfortable with, every 3-5k for a daily is just as crazy if you ask me.

I don't see an issue with 10k changes for a car that will get 100-150k miles the engine will outlast my interest for sure. If I care enough at some point, I'll blackstone it... but so far :aintcare:

We've been doing 10k oil changes on the wife's MINI and it's been fine.

Reminds me, I need to order plugs.

Does anyone know where/how to get aftermarket smaller wheels for the mini? Tire/rack only has 2 fugly 17s and 54 18" wheels. It would be nice to get some :215: s or :225: s on the front of this thing...

You want 16"? Or is 17" the minimum size?

Look for some used Team Dynamics wheels. They have multiple widths for 17" wheels with your 5x112 bolt pattern.

17” is the smallest I can go due to the giant calipers

Looks like the 1.2 Model would fit... in 17" size, but I don't know whether to look at 7.5 or 8" width... i think OEM is 7...

Wow minus this hideous color combo the 17x7.5" are 7lb per corner lighter and would allow me to mount 215s... :notsure: yet if I am going to pull the trigger on these... but that's a Yuge reduction.

I used to run :225: on my old 7.5" wide BBS wheels. It was a perfect fit.

Could also overnight something like this.

P3106 - Cylinder 2 High Pressure Injector Low Side Circuit High

I was sure it’d be plug or coil, but injector?

Time to torch it.

I wonder if this is a precursor to the high pressure fuel pump going? That’s not uncommon on these.

Right, that’s what I was thinking first but I’ve never had issues starting it, or with the engine stalling.

I have a set of plugs at home but there’s no boost and it’s sputtering bad so not too happy about the idea of limping it home 20 miles..

Buy the newest jdm mini you can import, then do a B series swap?

Or V4 swap :ohmy:

Might just be a bad injector. I wouldn't suggest driving it if that's the case, could melt down a cylinder that way.
