What advice can you give me?
BMW did compression test and found loss of pressure on cylinder 4.
Thanks Ross, that is helpful. So it sounds like you feel it is likely that there will be other problems as well.
So your advice would be to trade in?
The car failed its MOT due to emissions... I was told that this related to the engine problem. Would that be right? Or might that be a sign of other deeper problems?
BMW have quoted me £500 trade-in in current condition, and £3-3.5k if in good working condition! (Both prices are a rip off as far as I can tell!)
Given that the minimum cost for BMW to do the work will be £2500 to repair I'm just not sure what to do.
I don't want another mini so unlikely that I will trade in with BMW anyway.
OK! Thanks Ross. I really appreciate your advice and assistance. It is reassuring to know where I stand.
