Daughters MINI died yesterday. Apparently, the cam broke between cylinders 1 &2. This after the head has been off twice since June. Last time was 8 new valves. It all started with low compression in #2. And I thought my 07's issues were enough to drive the crazy! Don't think I've heard of many cams breaking. By the way it's an automatic and she really doesn't dog the MINI much. Me....maybe, but I don't get to drive it much.
