    Hey there, I know it’s been a long time since I checked in. My 08 MCS is still running great, has 178,000 miles and I’ve been keeping it looking good by occasionally running to Ye Olde Scrap Yarde and pulling bits from donors (replaced the driver’s side seat for $32 - same trim and everything!)

    What I want to know is if anyone has ever relocated the oil filter on one of these things.

    As it stands, it’s a pain to get to underneath the coolant tank and all. I’ve seen it done on other cars, and was wondering if anyone here has any advice or has done it themselves. A quick search didn’t turn up any prior threads, so my apologies if it actually has been posted elsewhere

    TIA

    Hello Zapski ! Sorry no help on the filter relocation. On Babs clubster it's right there out in the open. Although her MINI doesn't have a snail in the way. ;)
