With iconic styling and renowned handling, the MINI 3-Door and 5-Door Hatch are unlike anything else you'll see on the road. Simply put, they are everything you love about MINI and more connected than ever.
What's the Best Used MINI to Buy. I will be explaining the pros and cons of the three generations of MINI's and which one is the most reliable in my opinion. Thank you for watching! ------- Post video comments and Pro -Tips - I highly recommend having the vehicle inspected "Pre-Purchase Inspection" by a MINI specialist , either a dealership or independent shop before purchasing. Not only could it save you a ton of money and future heartache but it can give you extra leverage in negotiating purchasing price. -Once you do purchase your MINI ( congratulations by the way) it is paramount you check or have your engine oil level checked every other week, as the engines naturally consume oil and there is no oil level sensor to tell you when you are low on the first and second generations. You can use the dipstick to check. -Recommend having the transmission serviced ( fluid, filter and computer reset if applicable) every 80k miles or less by a specialist. This will help maintain the life of the transmission. If it has super high mileage I would just leave it alone and hope for the best. Doing a service may just upset it and cause issues. --------------- And for all the motorheads out there her are the engine & body designations by year. The following are the engine codes for all current MINI Cooper’s (Not Classics) First Generation MINIs 2002-2006 R50 Cooper = W10 (W10B16) 1.6 Non Supercharged 2002-2006 R53 Cooper S = W11 (W11B16) 1.6 Supercharged NOTE: 1st gen convertibles were made at the same time the 2nd gen Coupe was. Lots of people get confused when they have a 2007 or 2008 convertible and think its a 2nd gen. 2005-2008 R52 Cooper Convertible = W10 (W10B16) 1.6 Non Supercharged 2005-2008 R52 Cooper S Convertible = W11 (W11B16) 1.6 Supercharged Second generation MINIs NOTE: 2nd gen Convertible was released in 2009 in Cooper and Cooper S trim. 2007-2010 R56 and R57 Cooper = N12 (N12B16) Non Turbo 2007-2010 R56S and R57S Cooper S = N14 (N14B16) Turbo 2008-2010 R55 Clubman = N12 (N12B16) Non Turbo 2008-2010 R55S Clubman S = N14 (N14B16) Turbo Engine change for 2011 2011 + R56 and R57 Cooper = N16 (N16B16) Non Turbo 2011 + R56S and R57S Cooper S = N18 (N18B16) Turbo 2011 + R55 Clubman = N16 (N16B16) Non Turbo 2011 + R55S Clubman S = N18 (N18B16) Turbo 2011 + R60 Countryman = N16 (N16B16) Non Turbo 2011 + R60S Countryman S = N18 (N18B16) Turbo 2011 + R60S Countryman S ALL4 = N18 (N18B16) Turbo Source – Post by Professor on the Bluegrass MINIs site Third Generation MINIs The engines now have a B code and are modular in design.

This week Throttle House looks at the 2019 Mini Cooper. Pretty much the most basic form of it in fact. However, with all of the tech ridden over-complicated cars out there, this little Mini is remarkably refreshing.
