Resolved Question:

Hi we have recently bought a 2007 mini cooper s turbo, this car had a new turbo fitted some 2000 or so miles ago my question is that it seems to be using far to much oil, there is no smoke and the car seems to run great and we were told before we bought it that these do use oil. How much is a lot? or do we have trouble.
Regards Jill.

Normally with these cars its well known that these do use oil - BMW/Mini actually quote as acceptable 1 litre of oil to every 1000miles .. which is in effect excessive in itself but totally normal..so if that whats your experiancing then you shouldnt have anything to be worried about...i do hope this helps..if you require to ask anything further then please continue before you rate
