2012 Mini One Cooper D Diesel oil and air filter change, service reset. Mini One D 1.6 (R56, N47 engine) has an oil service interval of 2yrs or 30k km I think. After 2yrs you get a free service check here. I had about 26k km at 2yrs. At almost 30k (and after the warranty expired) I thought it might be a good idea to check air filter and oil. The result was quite shocking. I honestly do not think they changed oil / filter and air filter. See the slideshow.
So I decided to give my Mini a little service on my own, as Mini's computer showed next oil check after 23k km!!!!
I chose Miller's oils Nanodrive C3 5W30 full synthetic, BMW Longlife-04 oil and best possible aftermarket filters.
At the end of the slideshow, the service reset is shown in a short video.
These longlife oils make me crazy. My opinion.... max 15k km and chenge! You won't hurt your engine by frequent changes, right? :-)
