Everything You Need to Know

There are few more iconic cars than the Mini, and to keep yours running smoothly and efficiently regular servicing is essential. So, does a Mini need to have a full service every year? As the providers of the Mini service Essex car owners recommend, we’re ideally placed to answer that question! Here’s everything you need to know.

Our Recommended Service Schedule

Here at Power Developments, we believe in taking a truly tailored approach to Mini servicing. How often you need your car serviced can depend on your driving habits and mileage, but as a general rule of thumb we recommend the following:

Minor Service

To keep your Mini in great condition, we suggest scheduling a minor service every year. During this, we will conduct a thorough inspection of your car and address any necessary maintenance tasks, ensuring that your Mini remains in top-notch condition for another year.

Major Service

We recommend scheduling a major service every two years. A major service involves more extensive checks and replacements than our minor service, and this will cover items that are regularly recommended by the manufacturer to be replaced every two years.

Our Commitment to You

Whatever service you choose, you can count on us to go above and beyond. Once we have completed the work, we will subject your vehicle to additional quality control checks. We will then road-test it if necessary so that we can be totally sure that all areas meet BMW’s recommendations. Your service book will then be stamped, and dashboard lights reset, leaving you all set until next year!

The Importance of Annual Mini Servicing

It’s all too easy to assume that your car is in great working condition, but there could be problems lurking under the surface. That’s where a service comes in. Whether you opt for a minor or major Mini service, you will be able to benefit from the following:

Fault Detection

During a service, we will identify and address any potential issues before they escalate into major problems. From worn-out components to fluid leaks, our care and attention to detail during a service can catch issues early, saving you time and money in the long run.

Improving Performance

Routine maintenance tasks, such as oil changes, filter replacements and brake inspections all help to keep your Mini operating at its very best. By staying on track with BMW’s recommended service schedule, you can ensure that everything is working correctly and efficiently.

Safety Assurance

There’s no two ways about it: a well-maintained Mini is a safe Mini. Servicing not only improves performance but also enhances safety by ensuring that your brakes, tyres and lights are all in top condition.
