    Todd from NEPA, here. 2012 Justa Clubman R55 I've owned over a year with 107,000 miles that I've nicknamed "Phaedrus" as I've discovered the zen and art of MINI maintenance. Becomming more adept at maintenance mode. So far, strut/shock replaced with Bilstein OEM blacks, Powerflex rear shock bushings and Powerflex bump stops on all four corners. Failed attempt at replacing dented and leaking auto pan/filter/fluids (didn't have time to lower subframe). Blown belt - replaced belt - blown belt. Doing tensioner/friction replacement this weekend. Also including water pump pulley as the rubber appears to be dry rotted. Carfax prior to purchase stated water pump was replaced by dealer.

    ...more fun to follow.

    Welcome to M/A

    My wife owns an R55 Justa. I get to wash, fuel, & do any easy repairs. :confused:
