1. Guest - Welcome to the new Motoring Alliance Site! Steve, MCS02 and I were up until the early hours this morning working to get it done... as you can see it took us a bit longer than expected to get Phase 1 up and running. We are not 100% there.. its a journey. For site updates, "How Do I" and feedback please use the Announcements, How Do I, Feedback Forum (Links below). Like building a car.... its never done... and thanks for your patience

    Hello out there in mini world.
    Just bought a 2007 mini
    And it has some problems.
    Mostly mechanics that don't any more about mini's
    Than I do. So o will probably be here often.
    I really like these little cars

    2007 was a rough year - be sure to check to see if there are any open recalls that need performed on the car. We bought our 2008 and there were 3 that had never been completed.

    free work is the best!

    Agree with Brian. The 1st problem is that its an '07. Incurable.

    Welcome! Sorry your MINI is having issues, 07' S is probably the worst MINI ever. An Oil catch can will help keep your valves clean. I'd avoid tuning/performance upgrades, just keep up with the oil changes(every 5k) and fluid changes and hope for the best. Don't abuse it and you should be ok for the most part.

    Welcome to M/A...great site and greater people. Let's straighten out your MIMI so that you can have a lot of MINI fun. 2007 was a model change year which are always problematic...but with proper maintenance can really last and be a fun car...regardless of what SOME people say. :) :)
