Most new MINI models now have CONDITION Based Servicing

Maintenance of the latest MINI models is split into different categories which count down the remaining mileage independently of each other depending on what sort of driving you do. This is called Condition Based Servicing (CBS). It can be quite tricky to find this information on your dashboard, so either drive in to see us, or just phone our reception and we will talk you through the particular menu which is in your car.

Earlier MINI models have INSPECTION Servicing.

This is more straight-forward and has a pattern as follows;

  • Oil Service
  • Inspection 1
  • Oil Service
  • Inspection 2

This sequence is repeated throughout the vehicle’s life. If you would like information on coolant, brake fluid, timing chains/belts and other requirements please contact us for professional guidance.

The remaining distance the vehicle has left until a service is required is shown for 5 seconds when you start the engine. If in 2 years the vehicle has only covered minimal mileage and then distance remaining doesn’t reach zero miles the car should be service based on time requirements.

Older models have green lights which go out as you drive and when there are no green lights left the vehicle should be serviced. If in 2 years the vehicle has only covered minimal mileage and then distance remaining doesn’t reach zero miles the car should be serviced based on time requirements.

Every two years a clock symbol will appear like the one below, this indicates the brake fluid and in some cases coolant service is necessary.
