Take a look at post #3 in this thread.

Additional advice:
  • Keep a close eye on the fluid levels in these cars, particularly oil (which some of the turbocharged engines seem to consume) as well as coolant. Gradual or sudden drops in their levels could signal problems in the areas described in my other post (e.g., if the oil level drops too low, it will not allow the tensioner to properly tension the timing chain, and the engine could develop a temporary case of the 'Cold Start Rattle,' which topping off the oil should alleviate).
  • With the MINI being something of a 'baby' BMW, remember to keep up on the scheduled maintenance.
They're a hoot to drive! Enjoy!
