BMW no longer makes Mini Coopers - the last one was produced in 2000. However, there’s quite a few still running strong. Mini Coopers have a passionate group of devotees, and many of them are here in southern California. If you ‘re a “Mini Maniac” living in the San Diego area - from Encinitas to San Diego to La Mesa - you have a well-established repair shop nearby for your Mini Cooper: Barons Foreign Car Service.
We welcome all Mini Cooper models, no matter how old. Our mechanics are ASE certified and know how to take care of vintage automobiles.
The most important thing in taking care of your Mini Cooper is THE OIL. Keeping clean oil in your car systems is similar to having healthy blood circulating around in your body. Engine oil poorly maintained can cause you to have to replace the engine.
Mini USA lists these oils as being acceptable for use for the owners of all gasoline-powered Minis in the U.S.:
MINI high performance Synthetic 5W-30 (MINI part number 07 51 0 143 829)
Valvoline SynPower SAE 5W-30
Mobile 1 SAE OW-40
Pennziol Platinum European Formula Ultra SAE 5W-30
Castrol Syntec European Formula.
If you want live in Encinitas - San Diego area, consider joining the The SoCal MINI Maniacs (SCMM). They have events all over southern California. Also, consider subscribing to MC2 magazine – it’s produced just for Mini Cooper owners in the USA.
