    Hello,
    My '09 Mini Cooper just hit over 100k miles and I would like to get the Tranmission Fluid exchanged and also a valve adjustment. I wanted to know what prices I would be looking at and if anyone knows or can recommend a good place in southern California ? I'm located in the middle of Los Angeles and San Diego. Thank you!

    I've heard of tyre (or indeed tire) rotation, but never valve rotation......

    Thank you I meant valve adjustment ! Sorry for confusion. Most places where I live have quoted $400 for transmission fluid exchange. I was hoping to stay under $300...

    $400 to change transmission fluid is highway robbery.

    You might want to call Long Tran Motor Works. http://ltmotorwerks.com/

    I have heard really good things bout his service. He id a BMW shop, but he does do things like carbon cleaning.
