    I'm new to the Group but love my cars.

    Got a
    08 Clubman S
    09 Clubman

    Looking forward to lots of AWESOME Miles.

    Already had some issues with the 08 : Oil Leak
    Stealership $1400 for
    Valve cover, gasket, and therm stat hose installed.

    DID NOT EVEN MENTION OF TALK about TIME CHAIN when top end was open and exposed.

    just picked up the 08 at auction
    had CEL: P2626
    changed O2 sensor pre-cat. Cleared that up and then P1062 code. changed the oil to Casto 5 -30 and all good. so far

    Happy Motoring

    Welcome to Motoring Alliance the best MINI forum on the interweb !! You may want to find a good independent shop versus going to a dealer and if you want to do some of the maintenance work yourself pick up a Bentley manual. Happy motoring.

    Welcome....

    It's possible the timing chain work has already been done to your vehicle.... Or not...

    The MINI dealer should be able to pull the service records with your VIN and tell you...
